Concours Sketch d'Avril par Charlotte

Published on by Antoinette

A new challenge from la CDE, following Charlotte's sketch:

And here is my page, a totally different 'look' to what I usually create, (and overall I have to admit that I'm pretty pleased with the outcome):

As I felt it was a little out of my comfort zone I followed the sketch to it's tiniest detail - even the title is based on the model title in the sketch, and for once I didn't use even a single stamp anywhere on my layout - hertofore unheard of for me!!!

All papers from Basic Grey, "Mellow", title also from the "Mellow" collection, and using my dymo, a little white gel pen to outline, and a teensy bit of Tulip textured paint to give the page a lift.

A page of 'Firsts' for me:  First time to follow a sketch for a layout, first Scrap page using absolutely no stamps, first Scrap challenge entry with La CDE, I even used the first papers I ever bought, which have been languishing loved but unused in my stash for, um, ... well over 12 months at least!

Merci pour ton commentaire et tes encouragements :-). Pour ta première elle est très réussie, j'aime beaucoup les tons chauds de papiers que tu as utilisés, ils mettent bien en valeur la photo. C'est vrai que ce sketch est très sympa à faire :-).
