Sunday Sketch With Sandy

Hi everyone! Are you ready for another Sunday Sketch challenge? This week Kasia has a sketch for us which calls for a large photo. Play along and be eligible to win a $5 gift certificate to use at the CTK Store, upload your project to the CTK Gallery by July 12th and please include the date of today's sketch in the title of your project!    

July Sketch

My approach with this 6"x8" layout is to call out the three main colours of the threads in the photograph. So I picked a red stripey background paper from the Life Noted Add On Kit, a blue label sticker from the Sprinkles Kit, a wood button from the Main Kit and cut out soom green Shimelle paper journal phrases from the Pattern Paper #2 Kit.


It's great that there are three alphas in this month's Main Kit. My favourite is the confetti sprinkled letters from the Webster's #Happy Sticker Sheet. They are predominantly white but can easily be coloured to suit any layout. Here I tinted them with Versa Turquoise Ink which isn't opaque so it allows the confetti pattern to show through. Then I layered the inked letters over white ones for a shadowed effect.  

Hope you'll be inspired by this week's sketch to play along with us.
