Stuck!? Sketches August Sketch - Happy Memories

Hi there Scrappy World!  Where has this summer gone??  I can't believe we are approaching the end of August already!  I had some free time recently and decided to play along with Stuck Sketches Awesome August Sketch!  Here is the inspiration sketch:

I selected a photo of my little brother Jack and I from when we were little.  My Mom said she had this professional photo take by my Great Uncle, and entered us into a "King and Queen" contest they were having in our home town.  (We didn't win :-(  LOL! )

I am a big fan of Simple Stories, and I think their "Documented" Collection worked perfectly for this photo.
I love mixing patterns and textures, and using lots of layers. Washi Tape is my new "must have, must use" scrappy item!
I used Tonic Studio's Indian Gold Nuvo Mousse with a circle stencil on the layout, and then outlined some of the circles with a Sharpie Pen.  I also dropped Black India ink from above the layout - and then blew on the drops with a straw to make them splatter.
My little brother's smile in this photo is priceless! I am so happy with how this layout came out.  I think the sketch was the perfect inspiration to capture this happy memory!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you get a chance to "get scrappy with it soon too!"
