Jan 15 Stuck Sketches

Love this sketch, thanks Stuck!
When I first saw this multi photo sketch I had to rack my brains a bit to come up with enough related photos that I wanted to use. I then remembered all the selfies I took while on holiday last year.

The other reason I wanted to use these photos was because of the beautiful Project Life style cards and die cuts I recently bought at the Reject Shop. I knew this range would be perfect to fill the little spaces between my photos. I'm also thrilled I got to use some of the new gold dipped Thickers for my title. Looks great alongside the other gold foiled die cuts.
As for the text I was going to leave it out as I felt the page had good white space but then common sense prevailed and I added info about where each photo was taken. Whoops still have to add the numbers to my photos.

Anyway that another challenge entered, some new purchases used and another layout added to my holiday album. It's a win, win, win.

Thanks for taking a look.

Stuck Sketches Jan 2016

First cab off the rank for the new year sketch challenges. I "found" this photo in one of my albums late last year. It had been scrapped (by me) some time ago and although I love the photo I wasn't thrilled with how I had scrapped it. So I kept the photo and chucked out the rest.

When I checked out the recent sketch as Stuck? I thought I would give this picture a new lease on life, so to speak. I tried to work with the colours and found that the Amy Tan Finders Keepers papers had a lot of similar colours to my photo so that was my base. I loved searching through my stash and finding co-ordinating embellishments to update this layout. So happy with how it has turned out and that the photo is back on display.
