I am taking an online class at Big Picture Classes right now and they are sending me a sketch a day. I used the sketch from Day 1 as a starting off point. I find using a sketch to be such a help. Sometimes I only use a portion of the sketch or I turn it. Or maybe I will trade out shapes. Sometimes I am inspired to scrap just by seeing a cool sketch. Do you use sketches as a starting point? Anyone else taking the 28 Sketches class??
Next on my layout I layered some patterned paper scraps that I had sitting on my scrap desk from a card I just made. I used an edge punch along the edge of one of the papers and layered it with the other pattern papers. I'm obsessed with stapling ribbon on my layouts so I had to do it on here too.
I had to crack up because as I have mentioned previously to anyone who has seen my punches, that she regularly gives me Martha punches. Well, come to find out, she had signed up for what she thought was a year of continuously getting these sets in the mail but is actually never ending!! She has to tell them to stop and hasn't. So I am the lucky girl who benefits!! ha
Anyway back to the layout details...to add a bit of sparkle and texture I pulled out some Glimmer Mist in Turquoise Blue and Aquamarine and splattered it on the base card stock. I should have mentioned this first because I did it first! Sorry. ha I just opened up the bottle and flicked the mist right off the end of the tube onto the paper.
Next I pulled some alphas and a rub on from my stash to make my title. I finished up by finding a vellum quote and attaching it with some brads. Oh I guess I shouldn't forget that tiny flower in the title. Ha! It was also from my stash. Voila!
I made this sweet little tag for a challenge at Sketches4all yesterday. The Spring and Easter Contest ended yesterday and I wanted to get one more of the challenges done before it was over. Winner are being announced over there soon.
Don't forget to go enter the Going Green challenge on the Crafter's Companion USA blog. You only have one more day!! The challenge ends tomorrow.
Okay, I have to finish getting the kids ready for school. They are totally crazy this morning since Spring Break starts tomorrow!! TGIF!!
