A Ticket to Ride

Hi there and Happy Fathers Day!!  That means it’s June 15th and time for a new Sketch Challenge at Sketch-N-Scrap!  Let’s start it off with Sketch #59 designed by Kelly:

And now for my take on the sketch:

You can tell I had fun with this one!  Finishing up with my March 2104 JBS Mercantile Kits, I only added vellum, JBS paper tape, inks, and paint.  In March I splurged and bought 4 of the monthly kits from Jenni Bowlin Studio and that basically became my Spring scrapping supplies.  I love working with all the coordinating supplies.  Jenni does such an awesome job of putting together the kits!  I love the unique items you get in the Antiquarian Kits, like this German gold foil circular element and the kraft tickets (that I turned upside down).

The picture is of my husband and son enjoying a ride at a local carnival.  It was just serendipity that I scrapped this photo for this Fathers Day post; no really, I didn’t plan it.  In this layout I concentrated on interpreting some of the details of the photo with my scrappy supplies.

And now for some close-ups:

Here I made these pretty mini tickets with the JBS “Ticket Please” punch to go along with the carnival theme and the title of the layout.

I painted this lovely gold foil piece with red acrylic paint, let it dry for a few seconds, and buffed it off with a paper towel.  I topped it of with a Studio Calico label and a JBS chalkboard flatback.  It’s official, I went through both packs of those flatbacks, Chalkboard I and Chalkboard II.  I just love them!

I used the same paint technique on these beautiful gold sequins that came in the main kit.

In my layout you can see I deviated a bit from the sketch, but the basic structure and elements are there.  I feel I have gotten better and better at using a sketch as a taking off point instead of following it to the letter.  I encourage you to have fun with this sketch…go a little wild….go a little crazy!!!
