Insta ~ Love (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hello and welcome to the first reveal for May over at Lets Get Sketchy.  How can it be May already?

This week we had a fun sketch from our awesome leader Brenshevia Baker.  I loved that this one had a photo strip of three photos.  I used three Instagram photos and product from a Paper Bakery kit.  Included in this kit was the famous paper from Studio Calico's Lemon Lush, In A Hurry, which includes the Pantone Colour of the Year, Radiant Orchard.  I'll admit, this colour is intimidating to me as it's very lavender!  I used it in small pieces on this layout, I cut off the side piece with the arrow, and I used a sliver of the days of the week.  They actually work really well with this layout, as its about my love of using Instagram, which I use a lot.  I selected three photos that I'd posted on Instagram during April.

I love the Simple Stories Homespun Chipboard that were included in the kit, and instead of using sequins or ink drops for the small circles on the sketch, I used these gorgeous Chickaniddy Crafts enamel hearts.  Not included in the kit are my favourite washi tape by Smash, and the Studio Calico @ clip.  I used white acrylic paint behind the photos and layers, and finished off my layout with India ink which I applied with an eyedropper.

I adore that chipboard bike, and had to include it!

The chipboard thickers in this kit are by American Crafts, and are really different and cute.

Here is the sketch.

Make sure you link up your layouts and play along.  Thanks for looking!

Be blessed
