You Make Me Smile | Lottie Loves Paper Sketch Challenge

Thursday 16 September 2021


Hey everyone! I’m playing along with the Lottie Loves Paper Sketch challenge today! This week’s sketch is a little different from the others and is out of my comfort zone! But sometimes having a challenge like this can result in a fun project that is different from my usual style and often results in my best work! I do really like how this layout turned out and I’m so pleased I played along with this sketch!

I’ve used Bungalow Lane by Paige Evans for this layout and opted to use the scalloped paper to create rows of bunting across my layout to represent the lines on the sketch. I cut these out and arranged them onto the layout with my four little photos. I drew around the positioning of the photos and then took everything off again. I used my new Distress Oxides (new to me!) from Lottie Loves Paper to create areas of colour under where my photos would be. I used several different colours, blended together to create colours that matched the Bungalow Lane collection. I splashed the areas with water, splatters of the same colours and then also splattered with white paint. I love the effect.

I then stuck my bunting to the layout together with my photos, machine stitched along the bunting with teal thread, and added lots of embellishments: chipboard, epoxy stickers, foam stickers and gorgeous crepe paper leaves.

I finished off with my journaling and distressed the edges of my layout. I really love how this turned out, even though it was totally out of my comfort zone and different to my usual style!

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
