So this was my original take of the Scrappiest Sketch 53 this week .
(See my post below for a take 2 )
My nieces here themselves provided the title for this layout .
They do fancy themselves a little gaga-ish with those overlarge sunglasses !
I used mainly Prima's new Flight of Fancy pps here
and kept everything rather simple & true to the sketch
so that some of the overlarge / dramatic elements will add their magic to the overall design.
Before I stuck anything down I misted in part of a scroll design using a TA Glimmer Screen ( from their Garden Lattice line I think ) , using Maya Mist in Avocado & GM in English Ivy.
I just can't leave pastel colors alone & have to add in a little color intensity & depth somewhere . ;)
To add some interest to a straight edge I used my fave MS deep edge ( well it is only my sole one for now too! ;) ) punch - the Garden Lattice - here. I tried out using a border punch too on my smaller photo directly. I don't like matting pics much, so I sometimes get around it by adding in a black frame to the photo before printing.
I found the curved lines drawn at 2 corners of the sketch rather interesting.
At first glance , it reminded me to use swirls to finish off the design .
& I was more than pleased to use this overlarge Prima black crystal swirl which I have long forgotten I even had
but thanks to the sketch - was unearthed from my stash ! ;)
for the smaller suggested swirl , I used a new Prima pearl swirl with the little rosebuds to dress up the photo corner.
This particular new design in this lovely peach is really addictive & definitely good to ALWAYS have ! .
For the titlework ; I wanted to keep "gaga" larger in proportion to the other words
& chose to use the new Prima chipboard alphas that matched this Flight of Fancy line as well.
I added Red distressed stickles as well as an icicle type .
To finish off the titlework I used a black marker to outline my misted design , as well as to outline the chipboard alphas to add some pop .
If you want to try the sketch and hopefully get your hands on that rockin' kit from Scrap For A Cure, link your LO up to Mr. Linky here before the month is over.
