Mad About Scrappin Layout Challenge

Hello readers,  I am back to share with you all my layout for the sketch challenge over at Mad About Scrappin.  It has been awhile since I did a layout and I have to admit to being a little out of practice with them.  However, having said that I was totally inspired by this months sketch and also the papers that I received in my kit.

For my base I have used My Minds Eye -  The Sweetest Thing - Lavender - "The Best" Impression Pattern Paper.  I wanted to stick to the sketch as much as possible, but ..... wellll..... instead of squares I saw, Hexagons!!  I cut these from the basic shape files in my cricut.  The first layer was cut from Honey - "One of a Kind" and I used the dark side.  I then layered them with the brighter prints from:-

I then gathered some contrasting embellishments from my stash and played around with their placement

 Once I was happy with how everything looked I glued it all into place... I felt it was missing something so I grabbed my mask and added a little texture paste here and there.....
 ...I also added some rub-ons and inked up the edge with some black ink.
I love how this came together and using the sketch made it super easy and quick!!  I tried really hard to stick to the sketch as closely as possible....really I did ;)

Hope you are all having a scrappy happy day.  Thanks for stopping by....see you all again soon

  1. Aren't you clever?! This lo is brilliant, really reflects the sketch. Loving the additional texture paste & black ink 'splats' in corners. Also, all the hexagons look fab - like a quilting effect.
    You really have triumphed here my friend!! Sending blessings.. C :))) x
