I have always had a big love for sketches - and after 5 years of providing sketches for Manufacturer's such as Prima and My Mind's Eye, Magazine and the App aswell as a few challenge blogs along the way, I took a break from everything - especially sketches.
But now I am back scrapbooking again, I've had a bunch of requests for more sketches so i thought I'd try them as a weekly addition to my blog - no design teams or anything - just my sketch, and my layout and hopefully that will work for everyone.
You can see the first sketch in this adventure here: Saturday Sketch 01 and if you want to just keep an eye on these sketches, you can add http://anamstubbington.typepad.com/a_little_of_my_life/saturday-sketches/ to your blog feed, although my 5Ws course also has sketches every week aswell.
Today's Sketch comes with two finished layouts - one is more 'trendy' than the more 'traditional' style one so hopefully that will inspire more people.
So the First Layout "Be Proud" is a direct copy of the sketch - I used a sheet of cardstock for the background and 1 sheet of 12x12 for the 3 paper peices (10"x8", 2"x10", 2"x8") and then added stickers and elements isntead of the flowers.
Supplies: Paper by Echo Park, Bazzill Cardstock, Word Stickers by My Minds Eye, Alpha Stickers by October Afternoon, Acrylic Heart & stars by Heidi Swapp, Chipboard with Tim Holtz Sizzix Regal Die and Metal Embossing plate, Mini Attacher by tim Holtz and a varierty of yellow and gold Glimmer Mists, Stazon Inks and Stickles...
And for the Second Layout "Flock Together", I flipped the sketch over and then 90degrees to allow me to use a landscape photo and move the elements to the side. So the structure of the Layout is similar but not indentical and shows how you can use a sketch for two different outcomes.
Supplies: Papers, Journal Note & Arrow Stamp by Sodalicious (an awesome Polish Scrapbook Manufacturer), Lime Green Washi Tape, American Craft Thickers, Japanese Fabric Button, my own Handmade Heart (Sizzix Die) Embellishments.
so there you go for this week - hope everyone is finding their creative muse and having fun!
and for those of you who have found my blog but have english as a 2nd or 3rd language, I recommend using http://translate.google.com/ to convert the blog to your language as that has the option of adding to you blog feed in a language that suits your better.
