"She's 2!": October Prima ArtZine Layout

Good morning and welcome to the weekend! I hope it's a good one for you- we're supposed to get snow and normally I would complain, but it is rifle season opener for deer hunting and snow is just what we need to get the deer moving :). So that is what I will be up to this weekend!

I thought I would drop in and share with you a layout that I created for the October ArtZine from Prima! I hope you all had the chance to check out the entire issue, but if not, here's a look at the layout that I made as a sample for last month's BAP sketch.

"She's 2!"
This is a photo of course of my cutie pie daughter Aspen on her 2nd birthday. What a fun sketch for this fun picture! I really enjoyed creating with this one. I used a bowl turned upside down to create the half-circles on either side of my layout, traced simply with a pencil. I then used gesso, watercolors, and some stamping to create the details along the edges.

Here's a reminder of the BAP sketch from October:

 And a little bit of a closer look at my layout:

I have a bit of a pink and brown fetish. I just love combining warm shades of those colors!

The beautiful "Delight" collection was perfect for my little girl. I've used the daylights out of this collection- and I love it still! A timeless range; Jodie Lee sure knows how to design the best!!
