The Great Bunny Trap with Melinda Sweetman ~ March Sketch

Hello, hello crafty friends, Melinda here with you today sharing another page I have made with the gorgeous and super versatile Teresa Collins Something Wonderful collection! Today I am also working with the March sketch which looks like this if you have not yet seen it!

This sketch was a little out of my norm but I had fun making it and came up with the idea of using a cut file in a circular shape in the background and using the Black Wood paper for my background.

Here is my completed page

As you can see I have backed all of the open hearts with patterned paper and for the majority of the hearts I have used up my left over off cuts from my 6x6 paper pad so very little waste!!

I used some vellum from my stash to cover the open middle of the heart wreath, attached one side of the wreath and trimmed the excess off to attach to the other side and love how it looks!

With all that detail in the wreath I didn't want to add too much to completely take over so I haven't too much! I started by adding a strip from the Cards 12x12 paper and also a strip of washi tape under the photos as a grounding strip for the photos and to represent the chevrons/arrows on the sketch.

I used a couple of off cuts (again from my 6x6 paper pad) as layers behind my photo and popped up the photo on the left with some craft foam. 

I've used some of the alphas from the Alpha and Label stickers sheet for most of my title and pulled out those fun black and white stripped alphas from my stash for the BUNNY in the title. But first I added a really quick, light layer of white gesso to blend out the background paper a little.

I've added a couple more strips of the washi, some of the label stickers, a bunch of the brads, the 5 from the ephemera pack, some of the buttons and a chipboard piece from the chipboard stickers

To finish off my page I used some Roadbase Colour Spray by Colour Blast to add some sprinkles, added in my journalling (a little different from the sketch but that is part of the wonderful thing about sketches, they are a great jumping off point!), a date stamp and a couple of little phrases in 2 places.
