Happy First Birthday | Echo Park | Stuck ? Sketches

     Hey Scrappy Friends!  Finally here this month with a completed layout.  I've been MIA trying to get our sons birthday party planned (projects coming up from that) and getting design team project done in advance.
     For today's layout I used the October 1st sketch from Stuck ? Sketches.  If you've followed me for any length of time - you know I love Laura's work.  I loved this sketch and used it for pictures from our sons 1st birthday party...yes he's turning 7 next month...don't judge...lol
     The paper is all from Echo Park's Boy Birthday Wishes collection. The orange party balloon paper is my favorite in the collection along with the spots.  Both were neutral enough to use almost anywhere on the page, but also had enough pattern to make it interesting.
     The sketch called for a tag and cluster in the lower left of the page. Let me tell you how much I struggle with that.  I actually recorded this for a process video on my youtube channel and that portion alone took me over 30 minutes.  I finally realized that I was trying to interpret the sketch to literally.  When I gave myself more freedom the corner cluster came together quickly.
     To finish the page off I added some of my homemade enamel dots, and outlined the main part of my layout with my favorite sharpie pen.  Hope you have enjoyed learning some about my creation.  I'd love to see what you are working on.  Until next time...stay crafty!
