Love This Little Chunk :)

Hey there, My Scraps fans!  Missy here to share a page featuring the new Color Me Happy line from Glitz...and let me tell you, it does just what it says!  These gorgeous rainbow colors make me very happy just looking at them :)  You can purchase them in the store HERE.

I created this page based on a brand new sketch that I designed for the March Sketch-a-thon going on right now on our boards.  This picture of Paige is one of my favorites, and I really wish I could show you the unedited version...her little chunky hiney is just soooo cute!  But in this day and age, you have to be careful abut what you post online, especially when your kids are involved.  So I censored her tushy :)  But you still get the idea.

I used some gesso to white-out the background to give my paper layers some separation from the busy stripes.  I wanted it subtle and soft around the edges.  I had so much fun playing around with all of these colors.  I added the yellow, blue, orange and red solids, but the rest is Glitz.  I cut the "love" arrow & the word "chunk" with my Cameo.

Don't you just love these awesome rhinestones!  They are so cool...I had to restrain myself from using them all on this one page!  I decided to save some for my next page :)

I didn't know what color to cut my "love" arrows in, so I finally decided to cut it white.  Then, I watered down some rainbow colored paints and just washed it over the cut, making it a rainbow by itself.  I am really happy with how it turned out.

 Here's the sketch I created.  What do you think of it?  I've only recently started creating them, and I'd love your feedback.

You still have plenty of time to join us on the boards if you're looking for some fun sketch inspiration!  A new one goes up every day, and we are having a blast!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Missy :)
