Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #150!

#150 already!  Time flies when you are crafty.  So life has been super busy the past several weeks, and my creative mojo has been on the backburner so to speak.  I was a little lost when I sat down to do this weeks' sketch from AHSC, and I wanted to do something a little different.  Michelle at AHSC being the wonderful lady she is suggested perhaps mixed media and this layout slowly took form.

Using the super fun (yet retired) later skater paper packet as further inspiration I then decided to use a few of the Later Skater Picture My Life cards (also retired) on this layout.
I created the background using the Ink Blot (D1160) stamp set.  I am totally in love with this stamp set!  I used whisper, lagoon and pear Inks and randomly stamped all over the white daisy cardstock base using both 1st and 2nd generation stamping.  FUN!

I did use two pieces of Later Skater paper under my pictures and purposely offset them to give a little more dimension.  I also swiped the edges of these pieces and the white daisy base using the whisper ink.  Other stamp sets I used on this layout are Play Hard - Soccer (B1501) and the Later Skater Workshop on the Go stamp set (retired).  A few green and blue epoxy bubbles and my layout is done!
Honestly, it feels good, it has been awhile since I have made a layout and I am happy to get this memory for my son finished.

Thank you for stopping by, and I truly appreciate your comments.  I hope I have inspired you to play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Happy Crafting!
