Stick It Down Layout for March

Hello Lovelies
It's Stick It Down time again and the sketch this month is by Antonia.  Head on over to the Stick It Down Blog to add your own project!
I loved the diagonal details on the sketch, but my style is pretty heavy on paper!  

Sara Scraps came to my rescue when she shared this layout of her son and I thought I could apply the general idea to the sketch.  She even dared me to keep it clean and simple! 😂😂😂
Now I'm not a girl to resist a dare, but even I know when something is a lost cause! 🙈🙈🙈

I started by going though my camera roll for a pair of photos and a story.  Facebook memories helped by reminding me it's been 3 years since this even for JDM car enthusiasts and while the story probably is more recent, it doesn't make a huge difference to album chronology.  

Having figured out my story, I had to include black and a very specific shade of blue.  I ended up pulling mostly papers from Shimelle's Sparkle City collection with a background from Glitter Girl.  the black paper with neon signs had me thinking of drifting so the one from the paper pad with the holographic was a great place to start!  The ombre background paper reminded me of the duochrome paint finish on some cars.
It was going to be a bit busy so I toned it down with gesso and added paint and mist splatters.  I even had some prehistoric Flutterbies from American Crafts.  Hands up who still has those?  Bunting kind of goes with an even like this and the one I used which was meant to co-ordinate with Dear Lizzy's 5th and Frolic collection is a great colour match for the black neon sign paper!

I also used some Simple Stories Bro and Co for the stamp set, stickers and die cuts.


Chipboard and foam thickers for the title - Micro Glue Dots make the chipboard ones a breeze to adhere! (Thanks Columbus Trading❤️)


In addition to some stamps for the diagonal embellies, I also used some clear and cardstock stickers and random car themed die cuts and stickers.
