Start Smart, Stay Rad - a LGS sketch

Hey everyone!

Today I'm bringing a page I really enjoyed making with a lovely sketch from over at Let's Get Sketchy.

I just started on the month of February - my how these two littles have grown since then!

Here is the original sketch:

I've really enjoyed layering lately, and this was the perfect sketch for that! I'm not sure it comes across in the photo but the word smart is gold metallic (a fun little happy mail goodie), and I really enjoy that look with the colorful papers and b&w photo. I also had fun with some black splatter on my layout, which I don't do a ton.

Here is the little tag at the bottom. I love how it was a good continuation of the title, Start Smart, Stay Rad!
I used the staples, green paper and twine and a gold arrow to draw it together with the layer from up top.

Paper - My Minds Eye
Twine - Michaels
Washi tape - Recollections by Michaels
Puffy arrows - Freckled Fawn
Stay Rad tag - Heidi Swapp
Black round alphas - Studio Calico
gold smart, ampersand and flower all happy mail goodies - sources unknown!

Thanks for looking!
