March Sketch Post #6

Today we have layout sketches to share.
Funny Faces by Sally Clark (CT)
It just goes without saying really, point a camera at a boy and watch him make you cringe!  Personally I get a lot of "hand" shots in the lense.........  So appropriately titled, a younger, cheeky Alex is adorned with natural earthy tones, inked and splotched, a little tearing and distressing and then a touch of bold red to tie in with the belt.  A great looking page for a boy or earthy toned page.
The use of a spatter stamp can give an interesting effect when wanting a "drippy or spattered" look without adding wetness to the paper.
Sal has given her Cricut a workout cutting out her flourishes and title, then applying a little Glossy Accents for that glassy, shiny look.
 Gypsy Bay by Zan Boyle
Zan has used a brilliant background paper to work her sketch in.  It has made the whole page come together so well, matching colour tones with a maritime theme.  The corrugated boxboard adds a natural element and texture.  Actually part of a double page, Zan has done a great job with this layout.
The webbing looks great, and the lighthouse is a nice touch.  The blue/green floss sits well, and the diecut shapes fit in well too.

Lovely work girls, thanks for sharing.

Love the layout and especially that spatter stamp. Great effect!

Zan I really love that background paper...inspires me to use my one of that!! Great effect with your photos and embellishments. Every element seems to complement each other. Great work!
