May's Idea Deck Challenge is to use the 4 of Spades from any Idea Deck. I actually choose Vol. II's sketch because I liked it the least and saw that no one had posted it yet. I know that sounded weird but I like a challenge. You never know if you're going to like something if you don't try it, right? I absolutely love how this layout turned out!
I did deviate from the original cutting instructions a bit. The sketch calls for both background papers to be the same but I didn't want to use two "Adventure Awaits" papers. Initially the blue cardstock didn't look right. So I stared at it and thought I could paint, add texture or stamp on it. I remembered that the Raku collection had a crackle-like stamp. I think it looks perfect next to the wood paper!
When I was looking through photos to use with the Adirondacks I came across camping pictures that included my uncle who passed away suddenly several years ago. I think this layout was just meant to be.
How adorable is that charm?!
