2nd July 2012 Challenge

12X12 layout Brad Heather Landry July 2012 Challenge July 2012 Kit Simple Stories Summer Fresh Summer Picnic

It's challenge time! It's Heather again, and you know what that means... I've got a sketch challenge for you this week. I would like you to use the sketch below as inspiration, and there's a twist. I would like you to use feminine paper on a masculine layout, or masculine paper on a feminine page. See my example below for more details.

As you can see, I used a feminine, floral paper on a masculine layout. You wouldn't associate the floral background with a layout about a little boy at all, but once it came together it really worked. You could go the opposite way and use masculine paper on a feminine layout. (Think robots, stars, cars... anything like that.) 


Here's a closer view at the title work. I cut the word "this" out of one of the patterned papers to add to my title. It looked a little plain to me, so I added some Stickles. Bling makes everything better! 

My journaling and title were inspired by Trace Adkin's song "You're Gonna Miss This". The song really touches my heart because it's so true. These photos were taken a few years ago, and I already do miss him being that little. Here's a close up of the journaling block in case you'd like read what I wrote. 

You have until Wednesday, August 1st at midnight to submit all of your entries for the July 2012 blog challenges. The prize this month is a is a $20.00 gift certificate to the Scraptastic Club store. Good luck!

    Love your sketch, and what you did with it! The end effect is so cheerful and bouncy, just like your little guy in the photos. I like the pearls on the sun too.
