Destination: Happiness!

Every month, Two Scrapbook Friends issues a Sketch and Crafty Challenge!  One of our Design Team members designs a layout sketch and creates a layout based on the sketch that also includes the crafty part of the challenge.

This month, Jayne created this awesome sketch.

Her crafty challenge is to use a summer photo(s) on your layout.  I decided to play along with the challenge and this is the layout I created.

Jayne's sketch showed a vertical pattern paper that I decided to interpret by creating a geotag background.  I used my Silhouette to cut out geotag shapes and then I added 1-inch circles cut from pattern paper.  In some cases I used flair buttons to give it interest and dimension.  (The pattern paper and buttons are from Chic Tags.)  I also added some paint splatters to the background paper.

Since my photo was taken in Mexico, the travel themed papers were perfect.  I also added a die-cut airplane and hand stitching with twine for the flight path.

 I created my title/journal card using Photoshop and I printed it on photo paper.

For a final touch, I added some messy machine stitching, and I used a glaze pen to draw a thin line around the border of my background paper.
