Eathan's Flying High Page

Eathan's Flying High Layout As promised here is the second layout I did following the same sketch. I love that you can use sketches over and over and get a completely different look by switching the supplies you use. The layout began with my choice of dsp - the Sweet Pea paper stack (117161). I know I've said it before but I need to say it again - this paper is a must have. It is so fabulously versatile and so much fun! There is a sheet in the package that is yellow stripes and it has a couple trees and some grass in the lower right corner. I found that the stripes were a bit much so I cut out the trees and grass and added them to a piece of solid So Saffron cardstock (the trees on the right page).
I wanted to have a similar image on the left page so I just free handed the same images onto cardstock, cut them out and then sponged the edges. I love how it turned out! The clouds and birds were cut out from another sheet of Sweet Pea dsp.

Flying High Page 2 The accents on the page were done using the Trendy Trees stamp set (113258) which coordinates beautifully with the dsp. I tucked my journalling into one of our small square glassine envelopes (117226) and the funky frame for the small photo of Eathan is from the Baskets & Blooms die (it is the base of the basket).
Overall I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. It was fun playing around with a different scrapbook style.
Thanks for stopping by!
