I've got a craft fair coming up in a couple of weeks and need to make some journals (among other things!) to take with me, so I combined some challenges to help me get started: the Color Throwdown combo and the Deconstructed Sketch...
One of the things I love about Jen's sketches are all the layers, so my finished journal also works well for Just Add Ink's challenge this week: just add layers! Here's what I came up with...
I used Gumball Green instead of Old Olive because I wanted to use the Epic Day This & That papers, and I added Basic Grey as my neutral. The sentiment (from Feel Goods) was stamped on Basic Grey with Versamark ink and embossed with Pool Party embossing powder, then cut with a circle framelit. The scallop layer behind was die-cut with the large scallop edgelit. The butterfly was created using the Bigz butterfly die (Gumball Green card) and the Beautiful Wings embosslit (some Epic Day dsp), then fixed together with an antique brad. I used another antique brad along with a punched little banner, as well as a Daffodil Delight bow and a Gumball Green dahlia in the centre.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Feel Goods
Paper: Epic Day dsp, Basic Grey, Gumball Green
Accessories: Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon, antique brads, in-colour dahlias, Pool Party EP
Tools: Circles framelits, Bigz butterfly die, Beautiful Wings embosslit die, banner punch
Thanks for stopping by!
