How are you all today? Mine's terrific!!!
Welcome to our First Sketch of 2015!
Sketchabilities become more and more exciting! We have a great entries last Sketch. It was 66 entries... whoot.. whoot! Anyway, this month, we're doing a cross promo with White... with 1 - WW1.Basically, Sketchabilities(Karan Gerber) provided the sketch-and WW1 provided the colour! If you have been over on the WW1 blog this month, you will notice that Sketch #131 was released early on their blog so you may have had a chance to get a head start on this one!
And this is the rule to play along ------> The basic instructions for anyone that has not played along before is to use White + the challenge colour, which for this month is Placid Blue. They are the only 2 colours that can be used. You do not have to use white cardstock as the background colour but your layout needs to be at least 85% of white PLUS the one specified colour (placid blue) AND black can be used (approx 5%) for journalling/stamping or accenting but it is not to be the predominant colour on your page unless it is the specified challenge (+1) colour for that month. If you need to see the rest of the rules, just check out the White... with 1 blog. Or you could join their Facebook Page. And my layout for that...
I've used white cardstock with GOLDEN Fluid Acrylic - Phthalo Blue for the spray. The blue was quite dark, so the trick was, using a lot of gesso for the background and fill a lot of water in the spray and to drop just a bit of the paint. I added fine glitter from Martha Stewart to add more winter touch feeling to my layout... stamped some leaves from Inkadinkado Stamp - Fossil Leaves with Tsukineo Radiant Neon Ink Pad - Electric Blue and hand cut them all. For the title I added Stickles from Rangers - Baby Blue and finished it again with more glitters.
For the journal I've wrote it on the bottom part of the layout which is said, "NO BEAUTY SHINES BRIGHTER THAN THAT OF A GOOD HEART". I know that she's still a baby at this time, but I hope I could show it to her one day, that true beauty is not always from appearance, but the most important thing is that she have a good heart.
Thank you for stopping by to see my layout and I really hope you like what I've done. And as for the rest of the day... hope you all have a fantastic day! Hugs, Merry.
