The Scrappiest Sketch 123/ Comicon Zombie layout

OK I am super pleased with this layout!! I used a really cool sketch from The Scrappiest and photos from the Phoenix Zomicon standing next to a display for a Vietnam zombie comic book. Everything just sort of came together and I am super proud of this layout!!

I used papers from a few different kits and stacks, decorative tape, stickers, foam letters, and splatter stamps. Even with lots of black stamp ink it wasn't dark enough on the splatters so I colored over the stamps with pen.

This sketch was really inspiring, I new upon seeing it that I needed to use it. It took me a lot of thinking to come up with what to use (splatters!) instead of flowers. Pretty sure smoke was coming out of my ears while I was pondering.

I am really happy with how this came out. I think the only thing I *know* I would have done differently in retrospect is to not round the edges. Any suggestions?


  1. LOL!!! That one made me laugh!! I love your take on the sketch!!! Thanks for visiting The Scrappiest!

  2. Love the touches of black in this and the ink splatters are the perfect touch! So creative!!

  3. OoooH! I wish I had the courage to put ink splatters on my layouts...but it will all come out wrong and look messy. Very good take on the sketch...thank you for playing along.

  4. They are actually ink splatter stamps! Much safer that way.

  5. The ink splats look fabulous, great take on the sketch.
