Girl and Guitar

Over at Stuck?! Sketches, their February 2015 sketch caught my eye.  Fellow counterfeiter, Julene, often uses their sketches, and I can see why.  Laura Whitaker does a fabulous job time and time again.

Girl & Guitar – layout inspired by a Stuck?! Sketch

girl and guitar

Start: Stuck Sketch Challenge February 1 2015

Story: This picture was a proof included in my daughter’s package of senior pictures.  She is holding her guitar and you can see her senior ring as well.  Guitar is the third instrument she has learned to play after saxophone and piano – and was then her favorite.

Style: This layout was really quick to assemble once I decided that I would use stars to create the circular element of the page.  I got that idea from the end strip you see there off the Elle’s Studio Everyday Moments Numbers paper (I am using the reverse here.)

Stash: To my February 2015 Counterfeit kit, I added some Making Memories little alphas for the date, Thickers and Little Yellow Bicycle large alphas for the title and Stampin Up stamp sets, Simply Stars & A Little Something, as well as a Hero Arts set called Sky’s the Limit that had the tiny star outline and “you’re a star” sentiment.  Stampin Up’s star punches in two sizes came in handy as well.

And for those of you that may not have seen darling daughter posed with her guitar, here is the link to that layout called Be Brave.
