Scrapping Stamper - June Sketch

Here is the June sketch from the Scrapping Stamper:

What a fun sketch!  Shannon mentioned that she designed this sketch with the summer sun or July fireworks in mind.  I had no summer pictures to scrap, nor did I have three photos in those approximate sizes that would work together.  I ended up using the one photo- the group picture I took on New Year's Eve. 

I'm not sure how I feel about this layout.  It doesn't feel like me.  This is the first time I've ever painted directly on cardstock.  I love how quick and easy it was to make a journaling space, but I'm not sure I can deal with how messy it seems.  I'm rethinking whether I should have painted behind the photo too (again- not my usual crisp and clean look).  I'm glad I tried a new-to-me technique and I'm glad that the sketch pushed me out of my comfort zone.

You can see what the rest of the Design Team did with the sketch here.

  3. I like that you tried a new technique, but I agree that the painting doesn't have the typical crisp look I associate with your layouts.
