Hello, Altenew fans and welcome to the third Altenew Sketch challenge. The sketch and the color palette is based on one of my favorite layouts. I used stencil and ink sprays for this. you can see here.
Here is my layout I used as a base for the sketch & color palette. I drew a floral background by tracing Floral Drape Stencil on a white cardstock. I drew a floral background with a pencil and I painted with ink sprays. After putting some drops of ink sprays on the palette, I mixed them with water. I used a big photo that my friend took of myself in Japan trip. I embellished with epoxy buttons, origami wood veneer shape, water-colored chipboard stickers.
On my new layout, I used 8.5 x 11inch white cardstock for a background. Do not worry if you do not have a bigger picture for a layout. I did not have a large size picture that I like, so I used several small size pictures. I added multiple pictures on the bottom, it adds interest on a page.
I used a cut file (you could use dies, or hand cut hearts) to make the heart shapes with some of the watercolor style pattern papers from Reflection scarpbooking Kit. I added them on top of background using pop-dots for 3D effect. I decorated it with epoxy buttons, enamel dots and chipboard sticker. After embellishing, I splatter a black ink spray and added a title with alphabet puffy sticker.
When I use a photo, I like to have machine stitching on it. It makes a layout more interesting. I hope you like my layouts and play along with our Sketch Challenge #3.
