Let's Get Sketchy - 15 April challenge

Hi there!

I am sooooo excited to present my first reveal as part of the Let's Get Sketchy design team! Let's Get Sketchy is a challenge site that uses a sketch as a base for their challenge. A different sketch is posted on the website along with design team take on these sketches on the 1st and the 15th of each month. Here is the sketch for the 15th of April:

Along with the sketch, there is a lovely moodboard to get those creative juices flowing ... Isn't this mood board just yummy, yummy?!
Such pretty colours, aren't they?
Along with the sketch, I drew my inspiration off parts of the mood board.The paint pots and the sketch tie in very well with the circular shapes of the sketch. I used the shades mint green and yellows as my choice of colours. - and added to the layout the flowers. Here is my take on the sketch and the mood board :)


I used a stencil and texture paste to the background. Inked the circular chipboards with the mint green ink and then completed the balance of the circles with these lovely big flowers.  I have also splattered some ink on the background.

Would love to see your creations off the sketch and the mood board on the Let's Get Sketchy Blog!

See you soon for the next layout for the 1st of May with it's sketch!

White ... with 1 April Challenge

Oh my goodness - it's April already! Where has the time gone ... they say that time goes fast when you are having fun, right? Well let's have some fun with the lovely colour for the month of April over at White ... with 1 .... helium blue.

 This month White ... with 1 have also added a sketch too, but this is entirely optional.





 Here is my take on the colour and sketch for the month




The background is shaded in blue chalk and then stamped with ink to create the "splats".  and then some ink drops. I have also used some strips of washi tape. And of course both my favourite elements - chippies and flowers to complete the layout :)

Pop on over to the  White ... with 1 blog and have a look at the lovely layouts created by the others on the creative team - they are stunning!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with this month!
