Tuesday Talk

I'm playing along with Let's Get Sketchy today, so it's a scrapbook page to share.

All those strips were a challenge and I met it by stamping and adding narrow washi tape:

I picked up the colours from the photos for my background paper and stamping and then added an embellishment cluster instead of the third photo from the sketch.

I balanced that embellishment cluster with a smaller one at the bottom, creating a diagonal line to help the eye.

The title was added to make that triangle of elements that we all love and I finished off with some splatters of ink. I simply applied an ink pad to an acrylic block, added water and then used a paintbrush to flick the ink where I wanted it.

Stamps: Precious Remembrance shop, DIY, Totally, Little Things
Inks: SU, blueberry bushel, tempting turquoise, sweet sugarplum, bermuda bay, calypso coral
Alphas: Simple Stories, Summer Vibes, Bloom & Grow, So Rad
Stickers: The Happy Planner puffy stickers; Shimelle Box of Crayons; AC, Maggie holmes & Vickii boutin sticker books; Cosmo Cricket, tiny text; MAMBI sticks, MAMBI washi; October Afternoon, the Ocean blue labels; Jillibean Soup labels; Lilybeedesigns labels

Thanks so much for looking today. It's been great to have your company.

And keep crafting!
