It’s Monday which is reveal day over at Let’s Get Sketchy. Since it’s the 4th Monday of the month Team B is sharing their layouts on the LGS blog for you all. I decided to play along though. First up, the sketch.
And now my take on it.
I manipulated the sketch a bit to accommodate my 2 landscape 4×6 photos rather than the one portrait photo and then also added more horizontal elements to keep that larger photo block grounded.
This is the second of 5 layouts I created while taking Shimelle Lain‘s Scrapbook Remix class. I shared one last week and I’ve got another to share next week and then the other two … not sure when they will come out. Maybe I’ll do a Scrapbook Remix Recap post. LOL! Say that 5 times fast!!
I don’t tend to use a lot of black in my layouts but my daughter was wearing black pajamas in the photo that were quite dominant so I just decided to embrace the black. Adding pops of dark pink and turquoise help keep the layout from feeling too dark or sombre. Nothing sad about a lost tooth, is there?
Here are a few detail shots.
I wrote my journaling in a kind of letter format. I really couldn’t tell you why I did that other than at the time, it felt right. I hope she will appreciate reading a personal note like this when she’s a bit older!
The space under the title was looking a bit bare to me so I added some doodled lines and a few gems. All better!
A couple years ago I purchased a sheet of stickers all about the Tooth Fairy and losing teeth with the good intentions of using them to tell the stories of my kids losing their teeth. Well … better late than never, no? I also used several to tell the story on my eldest’s first lost tooth which you can see on the cover of this month’s Scrapbook News and Review magazine.
