Rad | Majken Pullin, Sketch 307

Hello Creative Scrappers, and happy Friday.  I'm so glad you joined us today!  This month's sketch can go so many directions, and I opted to modify it just a bit by using a striped background as my base to keep the theme of the strips of papers.  Here's my take using Cocoa Vanilla's You Rock collection - it's has such fun colors!  And they go great with photos of my son riding his new bicycle.

 I cut a few strips of the patterned papers to put some color on the gray and white striped background, and I sewed along a few of them.  I even sewed along one of the die cut ephemera pieces.

I flicked some mists for a bit of color, using Heidi Swapp Mustard Color Shine, Mister Huey's Real Red, and CTMH Pacifica reinker.  

I used one of the journaling squares to create my third square area.

I matted my photos with a few squares of patterned paper, and then layered two chipboard sticker frames on top.  Then I popped both the photos up with some foam tape.

For my title, I use the Outline Alpha from The Cut Shoppe and welded the letters together.  Then I backed them with the blue patterned paper.  I added my journaling underneath the title.

I used more ephemera and chipboard pieces around the page to add extra interest. 

Don't be afraid to rotate or add your own personality to the sketch in a fun way!  Our sponsor this month is Altenew, and I have my eye on their new alphabet die set...all the heart eyes!  Can't wait until it is back in stock.
