Stick It Down-Single page layout


I have to say I had a blast making this layout.   When I first saw the single page February sketch at
"STICK IT DOWN"  I really wasn't sure what I would do with it.   If I would just pick one piece of background paper I really liked that had some pattern on it or what.   Then I decided what the heck I'm going to try and duplicate the pattern in the sketch and just see what it looks like.

I started by picking out 4 different patterns for the Bo Bunny Key Lime collection 6x6 pad that I had.
I cut them all into 3" squares and started laying the out on some tan card stock as I didn't want a lot of color showing through.  But that wasn't' looking right for me.  So I cut out 3.25" squares of black card stock to mat each of the patterned papers and then laying them all out again.    I should have taken a picture of the whole piece before I cut off the edges to fit the 12x12 background.  It was huge.

I had already picked this picture of my nephew Silas to scrap, because it is so neutral in colors and that is why I also have the 3 squares of the tan patterned paper in it, just to bring everything together.
I went back and forth on adding a title, even if only his name, but I'm decided to stay as is, no title, no journaling, no embellishing.

Check out the challenges here at "STICK IT DOWN"   there is a card sketch, a single page and a double page sketch to work with.
