We loved Jen's layers, and couldn't wait to see what Studio Calico member Shanna Noel would do with it!
Supply List : patterned paper - Amy Tangerine, Basic Grey ; 6x6 paper pad : Studio Calico Classic Calico Vol 2 ; alphabet- American Crafts Thickers, Clever Handmade Polka Dot Alph ; labels : Studio Calico Scrap Pad ; wood veneer : Studio Calico asterisk ; Washi tape - Freckled Fawn, Heidi Swapp ; mist - Studio Calico Mister Huey's Watercooler, Bonny Blue, Bluegrass, Powder Blue, Heirloom Blue and Custard.
Right when I saw this great sketch all the circles jumped out and me and I knew I wanted to run with that. I actually started making this layout in the same format as the sketch but when I was struggling with it a little bit, I simply started rotating the whole sketch on my base piece of paper until it felt right to me, with the products I was using - then I went from there! I love using the wood veneer as a mask, and then followed that design to the large circle in the sketch with an asterick negitive cut out. I can't wait to see what you guys do with this fun sketch! :)
I love how Shanna took Jen's layered and romantic page and switched it up for her own graphic style. Tilting the main block within the sketch gave her page a fun and playful feeling.
