Still trying to get as many layouts done before the new year arrives! This layout features me and my hubby a few years ago at Chili’s. Its for ACOT’s “What’s on TV? Challenge” – which the hostess chose DINERS, DRIVE-INS, & DIVES and the challenge is that one photo must show a restaurant/cafe, inside or out.
The design for this layout is based on Let’s Get Sketchy, December Week 2 sketch.
When I saw this sketch, I knew I was going to do some mixed media. Taking the colors from both our shirts, I chose to use gelatos in Snow Cone, Metallic Blueberry and Aqua Dolce and the red is mist from Tattered Angels. I used the packaging technique, which I’m so in love with!
I even tried stamping on top of all the gelatos/mist. I need to practice a bit more, but I still like the affect.
The “Please & Thank You” is a die cut piece from Basic Grey’s “Fact or Fiction” collection (all the papers, bits and pieces and brad came from that collection). I fussy cut the frame, and then trimmed a bit more, popping up the phrase, so it stands out, with the red mist in the background.
I like it! The background reminds me of old building walls with the brick showing through plaster. Nice texture. Cute pic too!
