Challenging Inspiration

Hello Everyone,
Isn't this sketch designed by Mad About Scrappin's Creative Team Member, Amy Prior amazing !! 
I absolutely loved playing along with this sketch.

Once again  I have used this kit from Echo Park to create my take on this months sketch at 
Mad About Scrappin.

So here's my take on the sketch.

I have been cleaning out my scrap stash again and found some papers that I have had laying around for ages. The background paper I thought would be PERFECT for the base of this layout. It also matched perfectly with the Echo Park kit too without taking over completely. I also decided to do my take on the sketch and only have one photo. However I did use a 3'x4' journal card and some scrap to create the two other "photos" from the sketch. That way I felt like I was making it my own.

No I was really inspired and my scrapping mojo was flowing when creating this layout. I played around with some texture paste and a stencil I had gotten from a Mad About Scrapping sale to add some texture to the base of my layout.  I then added layers of patterned paper, washi tape and a large paper doily till I was happy with all the layers. 

To mix things up a little and because I really didn't have a lot that I wanted to journal on this layout I have instead created an embellishment cluster there instead. By making my own pennant flags and mixing it up with some matching bakers twine I was able to tie it all in together.
