High School Grads

Hope you are having a fabulous start to your weekend! It's been so hot the last few days that I have been stuck inside scrapping ;).
For this layout of Sierra and BFF, I played along with the sketch challenge over at Creative Scrappers and combined it with the Turtle Soup Birthday Bash challenge for 7/14- to celebrate a new path in life. What better way to start a new path in life than graduating from high school?!

I used a bunch of different products from my stash on this page:
Lawn Fawn papers
Evalicious wood veneer
Kaiser brads
Creative Embellishments stamp
Bella Blvd. alphas
October Afternoon mini alphas
Just Nick Chopsticks cut file
Silhouette sun cut file

I backed the cut file with different patterned papers:

I colored the wood veneers using 3 different colors of Gelatos and added water to blend them. I colored the sun using watercolors and then stitched in place. I also added some stamping:

I fussy cut the clouds from patterned paper and popped a few up using foam tape. I did a mixed alpha title and love the look!

lastly, I added some mist spatters:

Here is the sketch:

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!
