My daughter Mary Pennington made these funky glasses for a spirit day at her high school. My son Chris Pennington tried them on the other night, and well, we had a bit of fun with them. I wanted to do a layout that was, well, a bit bizarre … I love to do whimsical layouts, and well, bizarre is fun too …
Some of you might know my passion for starburst papers – this is quite a bit darker than I usually use, but it is an awesome paper from the Bo-Bunny Block Party line. The embellishments are from Sassafrass (another fave of mine – why oh why can’t I find it for sale anywhere???) and from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey. The wind is painted with gesso and I’ve used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to add an overall sheen and some colour mixed with the white wind (which may not show so well in the photo).
I based the layout on a sketch by Sketchy Thursdays. Those girls and their sketches are awesome!!! I am trying out once again for a guest designer spot on their team with this layout!! Wish me luck, I need it!
Here’s their sketch:
