Sketchy Thursdays 9.1 Challenge: Grand Pa

This sketch gave me just what I needed to scrap these small photos of my dad with Lucas.

Here's sketch 9.1 by Sketchy Thursdays:
Sketch 9.1
 Here's my take on the sketch, I know I'm straying off a little, I decide to go with circles so the small pics stand out more. I also moved the title to the top right corner.

It's a very simple layout with a musical theme. My dad is a musician, he sings beautifully. He's always singing to Lucas everytime they meet. Now if only Lucas will inherit those music talent genes :P
Alphas are AC Platform. "Listen" chippie by Creative Imaginations. Inks and mist; TH Distress Inkpad in Victorian Velvet, TA Glimer Mist in Red Velvet and Mister Huey's Mist in Warm Calico.

Tulle trim by Bo Bunny Gabrielle. White lace doiley trim is actual the backing of the actual sticker (Basic Grey), no waste right? :) Other trims local. Blooms; Prima, Kraft tag; Martha Stewart, ticket findings; MM.

Dusty Attic scroll chippie painted in TH Distress Ink Victorian Velvet. The polka dotted effect is made with a punchinella as a mask and distress ink, it's actually the same shade as the chippie but I think the foam pad was 'contaminated' with another shade, but it turned out pretty good :P

Patterned papers are 7Gypsies Paddington's Kilburn and MME's Laundry Line. Background sheet music stamp by Anna Griffin.

I'm gonna surprise my dad with this tomorrow, hope he likes it :) Thanks for dropping by!

Gorgeous! Is the base page stamped with the music and polka dots?

Marina said...

Hi! Thanks :) Yes the music notes are stamped but the polkas are made using a punchinella as a stencil/mask and inked over with distress ink :)
