It's Reveal Day!
Sketch #30 over at Let's Get Sketchy had my name all over it.
I used a paper collection, I've been hoarding for over a year. Remember the 100 Days of Summer collection by Simple Stories? I think it may have been their first ever collection. I adored that line. So much so, that I never used it. Do you ever do that? I created one double page layout with it, and that was that. I loved it so much I was afraid of creating something sub-standard with it. How ridiculous is that anyway? Better to have photos mixed in with it, and include it in my albums where it will get views, rather than sitting on my shelf in it's nice shiny package getting no face time.
Here's my take on this week's sketch.
Of course I needed to add a few more bits and pieces to make the sketch reflect my personal style. And, this was my first attempt at using Gesso. Unfortunately it's a trial an error kind of thing, and I'm not a huge fan of the huge white blotch on the bottom left of the photos, and I would have preferred just a little more to the top left of the photos, but overall I'm pretty pleased with it.
If you feel inspired to play, and want a chance at the $20 Gift Certificate to Scarptastic Kit Club this month. Create a layout based on this sketch and link it up here. This is also where you should go to get further inspiration, from the rest of the kind, and talented design team.
Happy scrapping friends,
