hello happiness | Stuck?! Sketches

I have a new sketch and layout to share today for the brand new challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches!   First, here is a look at the sketch.

And this is my take on it, I played with some Simple Stories goodies from the Life in Color collection!

I am so loving the colours in this collection. And I really think loving what you are using helps to create layouts that you love, too!  I began my page by creating the focal area, separate from the background.  Once I had it mostly assembled, I worked on adding water colours to my background.  Once the background was dry I stitched it to the teal base paper and ruffled up the edges of the white background a bit.  Then the fun happens!  Embellishing!

There are just so many fun elements to layer and cluster.

The clear stickers tuck in nicely everywhere!

Oh and a little bit of Tim Holtz rubons, in my very favourite way to use them!
