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!!!
