Got Sketch: Coffee Filter Backgrounds

Hi there, Danielle here today with another Got Sketch layout! Here is the sketch again that we are working with this week by Valerie Salmon from Got Sketch:



I decided to mix and match the photo sizes and instead add some of the new Cottage Farms Ephemera in between the photos for added color!

The new Cottage Farms line arrived at my doorstep  not too long ago, and I couldn’t wait to play with it. The colors are really gorgeous! I’m loving them with the gold in the Luxe line. I’ve used some of the Luxe gold heart rub ons with the Cottage Farms papers and Ephemera and the gold alphas.

The first thing I did when creating this layout (because I love to work with color) was to choose some of my favorite Ephemera pieces and layered a few of them together. I figured out that I wanted to add Ephemera in 2 corners and photos in the other 2 corners to spread the color throughout the page.

Since paint is so popular right now, I grabbed one of the new She Art Coffee Filters and added it to my layout under the Ephemera with a Butter Cream acrylic paint, just painting around the edges of the filter page. The paint seems to adhere the filter to the page as well. Then I added everything back on top of the filter and adhered it down. I’m loving the look of white backgrounds these days. I think they really allow the photos and colors of the fun products used to shine!

On the top, I cut one of the Ephemera frames in half and used each half on the top and bottom of the layout.

Here you can see how everything was layered over the text coffee filter, and I used the Ephemera circle to create a little banner. The frames in the Ephemera package make really cute photo frames too.
