Guest DT Heather Landry: Splash!

Hi everyone! I'm really excited to be back here on the Flamingo Scraps blog as a guest designer! I thought it would be fun to spotlight sketch blogs with each of my guest design team posts this month. In each post, I will include a layout that I created that was based on a sketch. It will also include links to two more sketch blogs in each post. I thought it would be a good way to let the readers know what's out there for inspiration!

The first layout that I made is based on a lovely sketch by Sketch Support. Click on the link to go to the website and see all of the wonderful pages by their design team too! I particularly love the sketches on this site because they appeal to my love of clean, graphic design. Here is the layout I created...


The only thing on this page that didn't come from Flamingo Scraps is the Kraft paper! I used the Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper, doilies, chipboard, and stickers that I purchased. I also used Salmon Maya Mist to change the color of the Prima flower. It used to be white. The white was too bright and clashed with my page so I sprayed it. I really love how the glitter still shows through! The background was also misted with Maya Mist in Seafoam Green. It adds a watery look that I thought went perfectly with the layout's subject matter. I used old Prima packaging from my last order from Flamingo Scraps on this page too! It works really well as a mat for my large photo. I made the clear packaging stand out by inking the edges with more mist. I sprayed the mist into a paper towel and then rubbed carefully around the edge. I also embellished the layout using a Prima e-line flower and some Prima gems.

Here are your links to two more inspirational sketch blogs! Be sure to bookmark them for tons of inspiration when you are ready to use your Flamingo Scraps goodies.

1.) Sketchy Thursdays  I love the fact that their sketches usually feature lots of white space. They really challenge me to use my supplies creatively!

2. ) Sketch Inspiration Not only do they have sketches there but they also have an amazing community where you can upload your creations to a gallery. I get lots of comments on my pages there because the ladies are so friendly.
More of Heather's work can be found here on her blog!!
