This turned into SUCH a fun layout to create! Diana and Heidi over at Sketchy Thursdays put out yet another fantastic sketch to jumpstart this layout!
I actually stayed pretty tightly to the sketch. Instead of small photos at the bottom of the page I chose to add some fun handmade embellishments, but other than that, I loved the clean lines offered by the original design.
This photo was taken on our anniversary last year. We spent a quiet evening at home, but it was still a special occasion, so I thought this shot was a great way to commemorate it.
The patterned papers are all from Chatterbox, along with the chipboard letters. The brads and the glitter letters are from Making Memories. The stamps and ink are from Close To My Heart, and the Glimmer Mist is by Tattered Angels. I also used a sheet from a vintage encyclopedia and some fun sequin fiber along the edges of the black mat.
I created the embellishments by punching scalloped circles from vintage book page and then giving them some color and shimmer with the Glimmer Mist. I then layered the distressed velvet paper circles and the printed transparency punched circles and brought it all together with the glitter brads.
I love how the date states the journaling for me in such a simple manner.
Head on over to Sketchy Thursdays to see the work of some other great designers!
