{Crimp Crazy} Layout (9/12/16)



Hello! For my next layout I used the sketch over on the Sketches in Thyme website.  It is sketch #218 created by Sara Mishler.  I really like the layout in this sketch.  It is a grid, which I enjoy, with 4 pictures.  The sketch shows hints of mixed media in the background, which is not my style.  Here is the sketch:

I created a layout from pictures taken recently of my daughters.  They decided that they wanted to have crimped hair for the second day of school.  Because they have hair similar to mine, I knew that we would need to do it the morning of in order for it to still be there during the day.  So I got them up early and had them get ready.  I plugged in the crimper and it took F-O-R-E-V-E-R to warm up.  We ended up all in the bathroom with only 15-20 minutes left before we had to leave crimping their hair.  In order to save time, we did a faux crimp and only did the top layer of hair.  They thought it was awesome.  Here is the layout I created:

I used the grid part of the sketch.  My photos are not great quality so I cut them down to 2x2 squares and backed them with some scraps of paper.  I did not do any mixed media (surprise).  I chose to use purple on my layout because I have heard a lot of people say they struggle with purple in scrapbooking.  I love purple and think it works as well as pink in most cases. I used my scrap box and dug out some old stickers.  I used a flair which is unusual for me.  I have very few flair and struggle to use them, not sure why.  Anyway, I really like how this turned out.  I chose to turn the pictures because I could not get the grid to be straight and figured this way it was harder to tell and I though it added a playfulness to the layout.
