This page was inspired by Berry71Bleu (and Once Upon a ... Sketch) where the challenge is to make a page using chipboard, a number (in either the title or journaling), and the sketch shown above. You can see that I used a chipboard tag with the number 2 as part of my title. But I also used chipboard in another way on my page...
The negative pieces from a partially-used chipboard sheet served as a guide for my watercolor painting. As you see from the photo above I used empty circles to guide the placement of my painted dots. I also created a row of charcoal-colored circles by filling in the chipboard negatives with paint, as you see from the photo below.
I added further interest to the background of my page by placing a used Basic Grey alphabet sticker sheet under my page and coloring with colored pencils.
Above you see my two cuddly cuties, Tina and Shadow. Some of the background details are also visible here. You can see the pencil work and the watercolor that I already wrote about, and you can also see that I did some string printing with acrylic paint.
After I was done printing with it, I coiled up the string and used it as a page embellishment. Tina and Shadow both loved to play with string, so it seems especially appropriate for this layout.
I also cut some paint-covered shapes from the cardstock that I had used as a top sheet during the string printing process. These shapes, along with some glittery Stickles, served as the finishing touches for my page.
Creating this page was a joyful process, and I'm happy I could share it with you. Take care, and have a great weekend!
