“I am so excited to be here with my very first creation for Pretty Little Studio. At first glance I loved this sketch, loved the idea of it with the 4 squares. I started pulling out all the bits and pieces from the Silly Monkey collection. This collection is just so much fun, awesome for the little boys in my life. As my style is quite layered I started by grabbing a few sheets of paper from the collection and chopping them up into squares. I chose the stars, spots, chevron, a bit of everything really. I added a few mixed media items and paints and layered all those papers with foam tape. I used the die cut image “Little Champ” as my centre focus, I also added a Flair button from the Silly Flora pack for his head. I used a few flags and some twine to create the little banner at the top. I finished off by adding some stars and sequins from the Baby Jack Confetti Mix in mint. I hope you get to play along this month, I would love to see what you create!”

For today’s sketch I’ve used Pretty Little Studio’s “Nature Walk” collection. I adore the cute animals in this collection! And if you ask me what the relevance is to the photo I’ve used, I can’t give you an answer that makes sense, other than “I just love them”! What is your favorite product in the store?? I would love to learn!

I absolutely love grid style layouts. The simplicity really moves me out of my box quickly. I like to layer among the grid and treat each quadrant as it’s own little layout….I usually choose a couple to really embellish and leave the others more on the simple side to keep the layout balanced.
I chose to highlight a snap chat screenshot from my oldest daughter while she and her best friend explored Venice Beach. I kept the embellishments in the summer theme and chose the California Poppies Project Life card and die cut to represent the fact that they are in CA (their college is in Nevada).
