This month was a sketch challenge about Houndstooth and Kraft. Let me tell you if I saw the sketch first I wouldn’t have volunteered. It didn’t really appeal to me and I spent a bit of time “thinking” about what to do. Once I decided, it all came pretty easy and it turned out quite good in the end. I’m still not sure about the sketch but I love the Crate Paper Hello Love paper collection and of course the Colour Blast Pastes. Here I used Rose Petal, Bling and Snow White.
Houndtooth! I just think David Jones when I see this. (DJ’s is a department store here in Australia or was…There are only a few left if any?). I have a huge stash of papers and do you think I could find ONE with houndstooth?!? Well, luckly I found a stencil from a small Heidi Swapp Set that saved the day! Here is my Layout and a few close ups.
You can really see the shine of the Colour Blast Paste and Embossing powder. It really catches the light and is really hard to photograph.
I have also put together a process video, you can watch this layout come together on the Popleopod YouTube channel.
