I was inspired by the sketch at Grand Diva's Creative Corner because it has that large strip down the left side. This kit comes with some ready made strips like that so I thought this would be a good place to start.
This layout started well but then I think I ran into the problem of having too many awesome papers and embellishments to choose from and I changed my design a million times. I debated putting the title "Painting Rocks" but I couldn't find alpha's that looked right and the pictures have that dead space in the middle so I went with the premade title in the kit. I sprayed some mists and because I used so many buttons, I decided not to make the two stitched circles in the sketch. The buttons came from the Paper Issues Take 5 challenge. I used:
- patterned paper
I also made sure to add a paperclip (or two!) so I could participate in Rochelle Spears's This or That challenge.
Overall, I'm pleased with how this turned out!
