A Prompt & a Sketch

I don’t know what it is about the Freckled Fawn sketches lately but I am loving them! This is the second time that I am playing along with them and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I win this time as mama needs some of that new tissue paper that they have just released! If you don’t know what I am talking about, let me explain!

Freckled Fawn has launched their own mixed media kit and they have some gorgeous tissue paper in the kit. Alas my teacher salary is not currently allowing me to purchase this kit but a gift card should would help.

I’m actually really looking forward to what their next sketch is going to be! I also had a prompt since I am one of the guest designers for LOAD217 which is a challenge for you to scrap a layout a day. I haven’t been able to meet the challenge this month as it is crunch time at school and some nights I’m just so tired I can’t think straight. I have managed to complete three guest layouts though and I love all of them! I will be revisiting these prompts at a later date because they are just amazing. If you want to know more about LOAD217 all you have to do is check out Alice Boll as she is the host!

Now for my layout. I cut out a simple heart with my Cricut Explore but I wanted it to be an exaggerated heart. I added strips of washi tape to the heart and slapped it on to some black cardstock with my heat gun. Yup I broke out the heat gun for this layout because I just wasn’t sure how well stuff was going to stick with the washi tape. I matted the photo on some light pink paper and a heart doily from the Target dollar spot! I love the Target dollar spot don’t you!

I then added some strips of washi and torn paper to both corners of my layout and grabbed the heart felties from SpiegelMom Scraps. I absolutely love all the felties in the shop and have decided that I need them all. They give so much texture to the layout even though they are small. I scattered sequins and a few other hearts around the layout and called it done.

The layout was super easy to create and I told a story that I haven’t told before so I call this a win win!

    So wonderful you were able to use your grandmother’s thread on your layout! Your layout is masculine but beautiful at the same time.
