Present (layout 249)

The first sketch this month from Stuck Sketches was so fun this month that I decided that I would give it a fun look with bright vibrant colours. Here is the sketch from Laura Whitaker:

I was at the scrapbook store yesterday picking up some final supplies for my cousin's wedding album (see previous post) when I saw this super fun paper from Heidi Swapp (favorite things wordy, dreamy ticket to ride) and decided to cut it up into the triangles and inked them in distress ink (peacock feathers) for the background. Anyways before I get more into my layout I may as well show it to you:

To create the background I misted perfect pearls (turquoise), lindy's stamp gang (gregarious grey, sweet violet purple teal, moonlit mulberry, salt water taffy) and painted the outside with distress paint (salty ocean). I then added some washi tape (dollar store). And photos from my son's 2nd birthday party. I then added some die-cuts (k&company sesame street) as the twist from Frosted Designs. Added title (doodlebug design) and added a couple of star stickers as I found it was just missing a little something.

I am also entering this in Papercrafting challenge Magazine Monday Week #58:

I was inspired by the vibrant colours, and birthday theme.
