Live Laugh Love | Stuck?! Sketches

Hey there!  I am sharing a new sketch, layout and a process video for Stuck?! Sketches' May 15th challenge today!

Here is a look at my sketch:

This type of sketch is one of my personal favourite styles, so I really enjoyed creating this layout from it.

For this layout, I dug into some goodies that I picked up from the "Life is Beautiful" collection by Fancy Pants, but hadn't had a chance to play with.  I really, really loved this patterned paper with the text, water colour and misting sort of look so of course it had to be a feature on my page, as the background.

In lieu of the suggested doily, I cut out a flower element with my Silhouette Cameo.

Once that was done, I began layering up pieces of patterned papers and embellishments.

Some machine stitching to create a border, hot pink splatters of water colour paint and black rubons help to ground things.

Hand printed journalling and some doodling really makes the area that I have my title pop.

We have two amazing and super supportive sponsors this month over at Stuck?! Sketches

As I mentioned, I have a process video for this page, you can watch my process video below or on my You-Tube channel here.
