Scrap 365 April Sketch & World Book Day Layout!

Hello all,

Today is the reveal of the Scrap 365 April Sketch Challenge and I can share the page I’ve made for it!

Here’s the sketch, based on Artwork by Lisa Saunders:

Scrap 365 April Sketch Challenge

This month the sponsor is Papercraft Scandinavia / Inkido – here’s a little bit about them:

Papercraft Scandinavia is a manufacturer that design and make unique material for scrapbooking, cardmaking and other craftings.
We design stamps, patterned paper, lace, flowers and much more in romantic vintage style. Our products are of high standard, inspiring and amazing to create with.

They very kindly sent a few papers for us to play with, mine were from the Beautiful Memories collection. They were very prettily pink, and perfect for a girl page…

World Book Day:

World Book Day Layout by Jennifer Grace

This year for World Book Day my daughter went to school as Daisy from ‘Darkness Slipped In’ by Ella Burfoot, which is about a girl who isn’t afraid of the dark, in fact she teaches a personified darkness to dance and twirl! Little Miss had to take the book to school to show everyone who she was as most people hadn’t heard of it, I love that she was sharing a story she loves with her friends.

For her costume I bought a cheap pink dress and added white felt flowers to the bottom of it, with yellow buttons in the centres. I added a similar white flower (but a paper one this time) to my page. I also made a paper bow (following this technique but on a larger scale) to echo the bow on her dress – I made it with text paper because the layout was about a book:

I added my usual scattering of pretty little details, but I tried to keep them close to the areas of detail on the sketch – it did spread out quite a bit but that’s just how I roll!:

I was glad to have an opportunity to use these sparkly pink alphas that have been in my stash for a while!

Are you going to try The Sketch? The winners will receive some scrappy goodies, and the runners up will receive a recent copy of Scrap365 too.

Don’t forget to check out the inspiration from the other Sketch DT members!

Bye for now, Jennifer x
