Remember Today

 It's time for another sketch challenge at SOUS! This week Nanne has provided us with a great sketch to work with!  I love all the layering on this one. Make sure you pop on over to the blog to see what the designers have come up with! Always some great inspiration to be had. If you decide to give the sketch a try yourself, you could be chosen as one of the Top 3 and have your layout featured on the blog.

This is my interpretation of the sketch! This is Laya and Renee on the night of Laya's stagette. The girls got all dressed up for a night on the town. Renee was too young to go out clubbing with them, but she did get to go for the dinner which was alot of fun for her.

The tags for this layout were kind of an accident. I had blended some different colors of ink onto a manilla tag but the effect was too dark. I wanted something more muted, so I thought I'd start again on the tag and use different colors. I didn't want to waste the tag, so I just painted some gesso on overtop, but once I saw the effect it made, I really liked it, so I kept the tags like that. I also used a new stencil I had gotten for the chicken wire and just inked over it. Fun and easy!

Beautiful layout Charlotte, loving the fresh feel it has, and what a great photo of the girls. The chicken wire sounds like something I need to try, I'm not that adventurous usually, more a product than technique kinda Love the story behind the tags, happy days... Hugs xx
