Practical Scrappers September 2013 Sketch

Hello scrappy friends!  It's Friday and Practical Scrappers have an awesome sketch to share with you created by our own Liz Chidester.

Practical Scrappers September Sketch
Designed by Liz Chidester
I love her sketches and I created a layout of my two sons, they are fifteen years apart in age, but they always have a great time together.  I used My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy Collection of papers and stickers.

"The Boys Having Some Summer Fun"

Acrylic Paints - Ranger
Adhesive - 3L Adhesive, Scotch
Cardstock - DCWV
Chipboard Words - Creative Embellishments
Ink - Ranger
Letter Stickers - Tim Holtz
Patterned Papers - My Mind's Eye (Boy Crazy)
Pen - Marvy Uchida
Roller Stamp - Glitz Designs
Stickers - My Mind's Eye (Boy Crazy)
Twine - Recollections
This layout was so fun to create.  I wanted to make something colorful and playful so I used the Boy Wonder Collection from My Mind's Eye for the patterned papers and stickers and inked up my roller stamp to stamp arrows down the middle of the layout on the cardstock background.  I recently purchased some laser cut chipboard from Creative Embellishments and wanted to use the hashtag words and make a title.  I first painted them with some acrylic paint daubers and let them dry before adhering them to my layout.  I also combined them with some miniature letter stickers from Tim Holtz to make it more interesting.  I am enjoying using twine in different ways so to highlight the date, I wrapped some twine around my three fingers and then adhered with some Aleene's Tacky Glue.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed your stay.  Don't forget to check out what the other gals at Practical Scrappers did with the September Sketch.  Have a wonderful day and weekend!
