Multiple Looks - One Sketch

During my last Ustream on June 3 (view it here) we created a layout using this sketch from Flamingo Scraps Designer,  Melissa Williams.
We took the sketch and made it masculine with the Heidi Swapp No limits and Vintage Chic collections, and Pink Paislee's Mistables.   Loved the look and texture of this multi photo layout, that celebrates my son's passion for football. 

Today I would like to share with you a layout that uses the same sketch in its feminine spirit using the Pink Paislee Hope Chest Collection. 
In this version I used gesso, masks, and sprays to soften the bold pattern of the paper and give the layout more texture.  I also adhered strips of linen and pieces of hymnal pages to the page for depth and added interest.
Layers of Maya Road and Webster's pages trims soften the page and give a pop of color that draws your eye to the photograph.   Additional elements were die cut from scraps of the paper collection to create layers around the photos.  The title was cut using the Silhouette Cameo. 
I love that both of these layouts look so different, but were based on the same sketch.   Have you created a layout using this sketch?  If so, please share it with me on the Flamingo Scrap's Facebook page.
Our next Ustream will be broadcast on July 1 at 8:30 est. We will be celebrating Christmas in July. I figured if I started making Christmas ornaments in July I may have them ready for Christmas (HAAA).  Hope to see you there!
