Hello!
Natalie here for Sketch Sunday sharing a layout I made inspired by Disney Creative Co. sketch #115!

 

As I was browsing the sketch gallery, I spotted this one with the bunting and knew it would be perfect for these photos of my daughter meeting Rapunzel in Walt Disney World on our trip in 2016.  

I followed the sketch pretty closely! I kept the vertical banner, which leads the eye right to my photos. I used two vertical 4×6 photos, which takes up more real estate than the original version, but I still wanted to capture the idea of the layers from the sketch. I decided to add stenciling as the main layer behind my photos because I’ve been learning about mixed media and art journaling recently, and I couldn’t resist putting some of these techniques to use here. Can you guess what I used for my stencil?? 

 

The Lace Egg Die from Scraps & Ink Crafts had the perfect Rapunzel-ish pattern! I used a dauber and two colors of ink to gently sponge color through the middle of the die cut– because I did not ever bring the ink to the edges, you’d never know that the whole shape is an egg!

 

(I did a lot of inking, because I didn’t exactly know where my photos would end up, plus, it was just really fun!)  

The flowers reminded me of Rapunzel’s mural paintings in her tower and the flowers she wears in her hair!  

I built my layers over the background. I made a cluster of paper flowers and sparkly Mickey heads (Bits and Pieces Padded Appliques (Jewel); Luxe Mouse Pearl & Rhinestone Paper Clips) at the corner where the strings of bunting meet: 

 …and another to the left of the photos and my title, complete with a Mickey Facet piece

 Speaking of the bunting, for the dark purple flags, I miniaturized a cut file I created for the Tangled party we did a number of years ago for my daughter’s 5th birthday and used my Cameo 3 to cut them out. For the second layer, I folded sparkly Washi tape from the Rapunzel and Princess sets over my gold twine and attached it to my page in a few places using foam squares for dimension! 

I’ve only included the date on this page (very unusual for me!!), because I will have a pocket page as a companion to this layout with more photos, and LOTS of words about this memorable interaction!
