Fabulous Fawns Challenge #2 | OTT Embellishing

Hello lovelies!

Today we are kicking off another Fabulous Fawns monthly challenge. The challenge this month is Over the Top Embellishing. I want to see major embellishing going on on your projects. Show me your best OTT embellishing!

 

For my example projects, I created a cluster of embellishment across the page. These embellies are a mixture from the May & April Freckled Fawn kits. I really liked how they draw the eye across the page toward the photo.

CHALLENGE GUIDELINES

Any type of paper project goes! Scrapbook layout, planner spread, card, gift, decor, etc. So long as it’s papercrafty, it counts.

Of course we want to see you showing of your lovely Freckled Fawn goodies, but the use of Freckled Fawn items is not required.

Enter the challenge in the linky widget below. The challenge will close on June 14th at 11 PM MST. A winner and top 3 will be announced on May 15th when the new challenge goes up!

Our winner from April is… Giorgia Rossini!

Huge congrats! Please email doe@freckledfawn.com to claim your prize!

James is Here Layout by Megan

Hello everyone! It’s Megan, and today I’m sharing a take on the May sketch.

I usually like to use sketches as a challenge to myself, trying out different page sizes or translating them as a pocket page design, but I decided to follow the sketch closely this month as a way to get myself out of a creative slump. It was so nice to complete a page without having to put too much thought into it, and having the elements from the May kit picked out already made it especially easy.

My only major change was making the photos bigger. Making one of the photos black and white helped put focus onto the color one, which is a good trick to use if you have two similar photos that are the same size!

Because I used a patterned paper as a background, I stapled the acetate speech bubbles to white cardstock and cut them out so they’d show up well!

I also used tiny enamel dots from the May Planner Kit in place of stars, because I always need more purple supplies!

Because my bigger photos spread across the full page, the clip on the side of the photo block on the sketch wouldn’t work. I moved the circle shape on the sketch up a bit and switched out a clip for resin flair (more purple!).

I also included a purple cardstock sticker as a place to add the date (and as a way to create a purple visual triangle).

To make the thin alpha work on the patterned background, I traced each letter with marker to make sure the title popped.

I added journaling on vellum with a typewriter, adhering it with a staple and another enamel dot.

I loved this sketch! Finishing it helped me get back on a good creativity kick!

Are you doing a project with this month’s sketch too? I’d love to see it!

Megan

Happy Birthday Card by Sandra

Hi there FF folks. Welcome to the blog today. It’s me, Sandra, and I used the awesome floral wood veneer shape from the May Embellishment Kit to make a lovely birthday card.

I used white puffy alphas (available from the FF shop) for the title ‘happy birthday’ – you could also use the yellow alphas that come with the kit to decorate your card.

I added some color to the floral wood veneer with embellishment mousse in three different colors – Indian gold for the center, peony pink and aquamarine for the outer parts. I gently applied the mousse with a paper towel. You could also heat emboss the wood veneer or leave it as it is. Either way, I’m sure the veneer will give your card that special something and bring joy to the person you are giving it to.

I really like the wood veneer on the card, because these flowers will stay fresh forever :).

Have a great day!

XO,
Sandra

DIY Week in the Life Project Life Journaling Cards | Freckled Fawn Washi Wednesday

Documenting a week in the life is such a popular Project Life process right now, I thought the beautiful May washi would work great for this.

May Planning with Kim

Hello lovelies!

Kim here!

This May planner kit is so versatile and generous I could use it for a month in my planners.

Today I’m showing you how I use it in a structured layout and one a little less rigid.

I covered up the days of the week with the Washi and then added an additional puffy letter sticker on top to make it pop!

Unstructured I used the chipboard backing as a stencil to make task boxes on my page.

Adding several pops of yellow really makes this page pop!

On this day I repeated the washi and added the dimensional stars and those wonderful vellum stickers.

I got a little goofy doodling using the circles from the “stencil”  along with a few more of the chipboard shapes!

Thanks for stopping by!

XO,
Kim

Splish Splash Fun Layout by Nicole

Hello lovelies!

Nicole here and I’m excited to share with you my very first post with Freckled Fawn! Today I’m playing along with the May sketch challenge and I invite you all to play along too!

I chose to follow the sketch very closely this month. My photo was larger than the one shown in the sketch, so I made a smaller coordinating embellishment cluster with the washi tape, chip board stickers and clips form these fabulous May kits to use on the left of my photo.

All I did was wrap the washi around a piece of scrap white card stock, chose the green chipboard journaling or checklist piece and added some tangled thread and a clip behind it! This kit is so beautifully designed that it just all came together so quickly and easily!

I did do just a tiny bit of water coloring behind the “splish-splash-fun” title and at the top between the three speech bubbles. I adhered the speech bubbles, stars and added in my date stamp.

I decided to put my journaling on the chipboard sticker as opposed to the bottom like the sketch shows, however I did add the date beside the title to fill it in a bit. Here are some more close ups of my final layout.

Be sure to add your projects to our blog using the May sketch for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Freckled Fawn! You have until June 1st 11pm MST to upload your creations! Don’t be shy! We want to see what you are creating!

Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a great week!

XO,
Nicole

Birthdays Are Tough Layout by Sami

Hello lovelies,

Sami here, bringing you another birthday themed May kit layout.

I recently shared another birthday themed layout, which you can find here. I’m working on getting photos scrapbooked from February. I find that I like to focus on a month at a time & when I am done with that month, I move onto another month. How do you decide on which photos to scrap?

I really love how the May kits work perfectly for these birthday layouts that I’ve been cranking out. My little girl had a My Little Pony themed cake & the rainbows and hearts from the May kit totally work with that.

I used the purple enamel dots from the May Planner kit & the word bubble from the May Embellishment kit, but the rest of the supplies are actually included in both kits.

My favorite item in the May kits is the alphas. I love them so much! I want them in all the colors of the rainbow. So pretty!

I hope you have a lovely day!

XO,
Sami

May Bible Journaling with Kim

Hello lovelies,

Kim here! We’ve got another sketch challenge for all of you this May!  And just like last month, I used my bible for the base of my project. I used the May planner kit along with the new White Puffy Alphas on this spread.

I think this sketch could go a lot of different ways and I hope that you play along!

I didn’t use photos like last time but instead used the boxes to highlight the verse I was focusing on, which was Ecclesiastes 2:17.

Instead of using paint, I used stamp pads with varying degrees of texture, color and liquidity to create a foundation for the journaling  and the perfect velum stickers used in this May kit.

I added some chipboard shapes and the paper clip to the page instead of on the top by making a quick slit with an xacto knife.

Watch on YouTube

And here is the process video on my You Tube Channel which shows you how it all came together!

Hope to see you link up!

XO,
Kim
