This sketch contributer this week is Valerie Bishop (Valerieb).
I just love Vee's work and I tried to get the same feel on my layout as she did on hers. I wanted the photos to pop on a softer background (like Vee's) so I used a monochromatic pink color scheme with just a few pops of silver and yellow to highlight the photos. I stayed pretty true to the design, but instead of using doilies, I wanted to use the doily mask that is in the new April Studio Calico kit City of Lights using the gorgeous new Boss Lady Mister Huey . For the misted doilies, I made another solid mask to fit around the doily mask by cutting a circle the size of the doily from some scrap cardstock and placed it around the doily mask while misting. That way the mist just stayed on the doily and not anywhere else! I love the effect! I then started layering all my pieces - staggering my photos instead of keeping them in a straight line since they were bigger than the photos in the sketch. After adding a few splotches of the awesome new Silver Mister Huey my layout was done! Thank you so much Studio Calico for letting me play along, and thanks Vee for being so inspiring!!
Wow Valerie! I love what you did with that cool stencil from the Louvre add on.
