Guest Designer: A Day at the Fair


Today I am honored to be a guest designer for Pixels and Paper Challenge Blog. The inspiration for this layout is from this image:

Here is the layout:

I was inspired by the bokeh style dots - used on the letters in FAIR and the background. I chose a seasonal theme. I also loved the contrast of the bright art panel against the neutral room decor. I brought that into the layout by using the white background with the colorful papers and elements.

I sketched the tickets and pretzel. I used a chalk white marker to make the salt on pretzel.

For the cotton candy, I wrapped a cotton swap on a piece of sucker stick and used spray mist for color.

Trick or Treat!

Hey! I could hardly wait to use my Halloween page kit, "Frankie and Friends" by Simple Stories. I also had some great black rhinestones and Halloween themed embellishments from a prize pack from the Pixels and Paper Challenge Blog. So I could hardly wait to print out our trick-or-treat photos and work up a Halloween layout. Here is what I came up with:

The layout is based on sketch from the Nov 1 challenge at Stuck!? Sketches

The orange and black button embellishment is from Studio Fourteen40. I cut the spider web with my silhouette machine.

Parker was so excited about being, "Zane" from Ninjago. He loved his throwing stars! Landon however was not excited especially since there were so many people at the mall (it was pouring down rain most of the day). He only wore his dinosaur costume a few minutes. They both enjoyed the candy!
