Sketch Challenge on the Victoria Marie FB Group

Hi Everyone!

So I have decided to add a second blog to my blogger account.  You may (or may not) know about my other blog - Sarah's Stamp Lab - where I feature all of my cards from my Stampin' Up! business.  In the past I have posted some of my scrap layouts, but I really felt that I needed to create a separate blog just for my scrapping and so Sarah's Scrap Lab has been born!  I hope you enjoy the projects I post here.  I'm fairly new to scrapbooking.  I have only been doing it for about 2 years, but I 'm really enjoying documenting a lot of our lives.

I am a member of quite a few scrapbooking groups on Facebook, but my favorite one is the Victoria Marie Facebook Group.  It's such a great group of people who all are super supportive and just fun to chat with!  In addition to the support and inspiration, there are also lots of challenges posted.  The challenges have no deadline, so you can participate in them whenever you feel like it.  Recently on the group, there was a sketch challenge posted that I really wanted to try.

Here is the sketch:

I believe the sketch was originally from Scrapidees.

Here's my layout for this sketch:

I used the True Colors kit from the Scraptastic Club.  Scraptastic always gives you two kit choices every month.  Do not ask me where I got the idea that this kit was the one for me.  It's all hot pink, orange and black and white.  Not my go to colors at all!  I guess that I was looking for a challenge.  I think in the end I got about 5-6 layouts out of it, but I really did not like this kit very much.  

To make the paint splatters and brushstrokes, I used some stamps from Stampin' Up!, and then I used cardstock, stickers, and a doily from the Scraptastic Kit.  For the title, I cut the words out of the Bella Blvd Newsflash paper.  

I hope you enjoyed my first scrap blog post!  If you have any questions about the layout, please leave the questions in the comments section and I'll get back to you!
