Here's another layout that was inspired by Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook 4 class. This time I was inspired by a layout designed by April Foster, the owner of Studio Calico. I took her basic idea and made it mine using the new Summer Smooches paper and a little bit of Glimmer Mist sprays that happened to match the color scheme.
I liked the red/white/blue combo found in Chip and Dale's outfit, so I let that choose our color scheme for the page. In the Summer Smooches paper, there is Real Red and Island Indigo paper that lent itself to this idea. It wasn't a perfect match, but I liked it well enough to keep it for this page.
I started by using a mask for the bottom of the layout. I spritzed over that with Cherry Limeade and Carribean Blue Glimmer Mist. I added a few strips of Summer Smooches paper and matted my picture with a little bit of Whisper White and Island Indigo paper. You'll notice I left a little bit extra on the right side - I did that on purpose - kind of making it have a sideways Polaroid look. It also left room for the baker's twine and the & symbol.
I decided to make the title using a stencil and some letter stickers. I tried to color the letter stickers Island Indigo....but they were a little dull. Therefore, I went back around them with my Real Red pen to outline each letter. While I had my Stampin' Write markers out, I doodled a little frame around the edge of the page.
To finish off the page, I used up my supply of Real Red buttons and Island Indigo brads. I pierced a trail using my paper piercer and scattered the buttons and brads along that trail leading your eye right through the picture and the title.
