Another month and another sketch from Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. This sketch was a challenge for me to embellish! Those triangles were just not working for me! Maybe because I had switched the orientation of the photo and made the scalloped edge the sketch has into a much smaller feature.
I love the how this layout turned out! I was originally going to try to keep everything in a grey/black/white colour theme and let the colour from the photo jump out but it just wasn't working for me. I think the black paper I was using was just too much. So I added in the pretty light blue and it just came together.
The papers are all from the Fancy Pants 'Park Bench' collection. I added in some washi and enamel dots along with those cute Doodlebug alphas and a flair badge from Um Wow Studio. And I had to dig way back into my stash to find those black photo corners! I have had them forever but this is the first time I have used them. For some reason I felt like this layout really needed them!
