New Friends

Following July's sketch from Once Upon A Sketch, with a friend theme, I created this  "New Friends" layout.


I don't remember ever doing a monochromatic layout before and let me tell you, it was no easy task. I love to mix patterns and colors, so I really struggled with this.

For the title, i painted chipboard alphas using a blue pearl acrylic paint. I love the shimmer it gave.

I made the headbands and tutus, so I made a flower that matches the headbands to incorporate in the layout. I also used a water pen and ink to dye what were white flowers blue.

I used the same wet ink technique to make the butterfly have a blue tint.

I once again did hidden journaling. I cut out the design from one of the papers in the MME Lost and Found collection, which I used throughout the layout. It was perfect to make a tag to tuck behind the photo.

Thanks for stopping by!
