I wanted to use some inspiration to get me going, so I hit up a few websites for sketches and challenges, and that's mostly what I worked on all day! The first one I have above is the Stuck On U Sketches blog sketch challenge found here. I had the Echo Park mini theme and used that for several pages including this one.
Sketch N Scrap sketch challenge found here. Again, used the EP mini theme papers. But for this one, I had some white seam binding ribbon, and I wanted it to be navy instead. I didn't have navy ink or even navy mist. I had two blues that were more shades of cobalt, and a charcoal color mist. So I scrunched the seam binding ribbon into a zip baggie, dampened it with water from my mini mister, then misted it with the two blues and the charcoal mist. That was sufficient to make my own "navy" colored ribbon, that actually looks a little like it's been tie-dyed. Pretty neat.
My Creative Sketches blog sketch challenge found here. The little arrow is pointing at a beaver we saw swimming, and rather than put a big picture with a tiny tiny subject on the layout, I decided to use the beaver picture as an embellishment instead. :)
Stuck on U Sketches all new card sketch challenge found here! I used a kraft cardstock base and stamped it with a Hero Arts stamp I've never used before. Then I threw some scraps on there. ha! the center element is a chalkboard sticker from American Crafts. My chalk writing stinks. I wish I could have written that better. lol
THANKS! for stopping by. :)
