This layout is a DT-layout for Scrap The Girls. I found this sketch quite challenging but I was quite satisfied with the final result. The photo shows DD hugging grandpa.

I used some water colour and neon yellow paint on the background. The horizontal lines on the sketch turned into triangles and some black "lines".

Here are two close-ups:


I hope to see you playing along! You'll find some awesome inspiration over here.

Rainy midsummer

July’s challenge at ARTastic is to get inspired by Shirley Charlton’s (aka Shirlroma) painting "Umbrellas, wet street". The criteria is to use water (liquid) in some way on your page (ink spray, gelatos, paper crumple, watered down paint, make handmade flowers etc). I used watercolour on my background and patterned papers with watercolour pattern.

I also have a “water theme” on the layout (not requested). The photos are taken on our national holiday midsummer. We celebrate the day outdoors dancing traditional dances around a maypole. This year it was raining cats and dogs… DD even had to wear her midsummer wreath over her raincoat.

Here is a close-up:

Circus Fantastico

Before showing this month's DT-layouts I want to show you a layout that I made for Let's Get Sketchy's June challenge week 3 (deadline July 5th). I followed the sketch quite closely, but it might be hard to see at first sight.
In my interpretation the flowers on both sides of the photo turned into different circus figures and the circles turned into an elephant. I kept the lines underneath the photo and the title is at the "right" Place.
Here are two close-ups:
