Here's the page I made. That's my nephew Cristian, and his t-shirt speaks the truth. I struggled to find colors to go with the vibrant blue shirt and finally settled on primary colors. The background red polka dot paper is Girl's Paperie. The yellow ledger paper is by We R Memory Keepers. The smaller red polka dot paper is by Jillibean Soup. All the rest of the patterned papers are by My Mind's Eye, from various collections.
Here are some details. The little balloon, clouds, and swirls are cut from different My Mind's Eye papers from the "Love Me Do" collection. I had that stamped journaling spot leftover from a layout where I had decided not to use it, so that came in handy here. I used a little asterisk from the title letters to add a little extra deimension and mounted the balloon, swirls, and one of the clouds with pop dots. I traced a circle several times with a fine-line pen in the background. It seemed like a good idea at the time. :)
The title letters are really glittery and fun. I added a little bird cut from one of the Love Me Do papers. I was originally going to stitch my papers but decided instead to distress and outline the papers with black pen. The border punch is by Martha Stewart (it's called Double Loops).
I added the black paper at at the last minute to add a some contrast. It's from a Halloween collection. I thought the yellow Doodlebug sugared brad was the perfect color and tied in with the sparkly letters.
Go check out what the rest of the team made. It's always so fun to see all the different takes on the same sketch. I hope you'll play with us. This was a really fun sketch to work with!
