Weekly sketch challenge "Sketch Freitag" 14.08.15. @danipeuss - my layout for sketch Nr. 3.

So here I am, again, with a new layout! This time for the weekly challenge +danipeuss. A few weeks ago I had no idea what sketches were and now I just love them! They give me an opportunity to try my hands at layouts I would not normally go for.

This one for instance, has 3 pictures in bigger sizes which I would rarely use anymore. Well I did replace one picture by some patterned paper in the end, but mainly because I only had two pictures for this topic! :)

Here is the sketch, I find it really cool and inspiring!

And this is the layout I came up with. I swear I tried to stay away from cut files but I just could NOT, haha! So the first layer in the background I created using texture paste, which I then painted with some lime green Dylusions paint. Seriously, lime green, teal and turquoise have been my favourite colors for years. Can't have enough of them! And this paint, my goodness, it's gorgeous. Of course I had to buy the matching Dylusions spray ink too :D. Which is what I used on TheCutShoppe cut file that is the second layer in this design. Such an amazing vibrant color, don't you think? 

I've added some different fussy cut/torn papers as background for my photos. Now that I buy 6x6" pads too, I am more confident in tearing up my papers! I never had the heart to tear up my beautiful 12x12" papers...

Like I said, I've replaced one photo by some patterned paper. I've used another cut file for this from TheCutShoppe and blew it up to about the same 4x4" size as was required by the sketch. The letters that were cut out were so cute, I just couldn't throw them away! So I fussy cut some white background for them and used them as my title.

I didn't have an awful lot of embellishments in these colors so I've spray painted some wood veneers with the same lime green ink I've used earlier. I love wood veneers! So versatile!

Of course, as always, I HAD TO use some flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons and lucky for me black buttons were great with this layout, because I've run out of colored ones! New delivery is on its way though :).

I hope you like how the layout turned out! x
