LOVE USING PAGEMAPS!! In case any of you hadn't noticed, most of my work is based on these amazing sketches by Becky Fleck. I love how easy they are to use and to adapt to my pictures and embellishments.
The layout below is my entry for this month's sketch contest. I had my Easter pictures laying on the desk. They hadn't quite made it to the storage box so I grabbed them and found some that would work for the sketch below.
Here is my entry. Alex hunting for eggs in the POURING rain. I think it was better in the rain because there weren't as many people there. But still more people there than I thought would be. Guess I'm not the only crazy parent hoping to make some memories for my children!!
I used paper from DCWV Spring stack from a year or two ago. It had the rain cloud paper which is just perfect for these pictures!! I used my EK Success border punch to create the circles on the paper strip. Used my red Sizzix to cut the eggs. Thickers letters for the aqua title. I was quite happy that they matched the colors that I was using! The subtitle is made with EK Success's Bookworks letter stickers. Need to get me more of these.... love them! Cut the rain cloud out of the paper twice and added some pop dots to give dimension. Added the rain using my sewing machine. I like how that came out. I heat embossed the journaling area. Used some metallic paper I picked up at Walmart and can't remember who makes it for the yellow journal area as well as the eggs under the title. Used a Bic marker to write the journaling. Background paper is from a DCWV spring cardstock stack. Thinking it was the same year as the paper... whatever that was.
