Hey scrappy friends! I’m here today with a layout inspired by Laura’s sketch over at Stuck ? Sketches. I don’t usually do layouts that are all strips as they are a challenge to me, but I figured since I’m challenging myself with the no buy I’d also challenge myself to try sketches that I normally would shy away from.
I’m still working on killing my Felicity Jane Summer kit, and this one was made with branding strips, washi and cut up pocket page cards.
The embellishments were also from the kit, but I added my homemade enamel dots, and one of the doilies that I bought in a pack of 1,000! Leaving the doily white didn’t give it enough umph so I colored it with a Mr. Huey’s ink dauber that I received in a Studio Calico kit year and years ago.
The odd title came from a lack of letters left in my kit, but I does fit if you read my journalling. Every year on the day my parents leave the beach we go for breakfast as a place called Royal Treat. They have the biggest breakfast I’ve ever seen, and thick Italian toast…it must be two inches thick. So the name does fit.
I also turned the turquoise project life card the “wrong way to make the scallops look more like stripes, and I used the black and white stripe branding strip to fit challenge over at Lasting Memories.
Hope you enjoyed reading about my process, and I hope to be back soon with new layouts and even a process video. I’ve been so busy just creating that I haven’t stopped to filmed anything. Until next time then…stay crafty!
