Sketchy Thursdays is having a June Guest Design Team Challenge and I thought I'd give it a whirl! I love the sketch and it's a real challenge for me to use "negative space". I always want to fill it with something, and I may end up doing some journaling after I have a think of where to put it! Maybe a pull out tag or something. The layout I created is of Sophia showing off her first two teeth - or "toothy pegs". I layered some hydrangea flowers and added some cute little face stickers that I bought ages ago! I used a lot of scraps on this layout - bits of ribbon, punched paper and a tiny piece of pp that I cut into little pictures. I even used my green Copic marker to create a border around the green Bazzill. There's also some black pen doodling, some tiny yellow pearls and a tooth sticker that says "My 1st Tooth". I pleated some ribbon and adhered some of the elements on 3D foam dots for texture.
Here's a closeup of the flowers. There are tons of little faces to chose from - given the amount of grief those little teeth have given us you'd think I'd put grumpy faces in the flowers - but after they erupt it's all smiles. Sophia isn't much of a dribbler either thank goodness. Being in daycare I see lots of dribbly teethers!
Don't you just love the little tooth letters! I bought them a while back knowing that I would use them for Sophia's tooth layouts - I also used them for Amber when she had some teeth removed! I raised them on 3D foam dots.
