I'm so happy! Sarah has decided to start a monthly challenge on the S J Crafts blog and the first one is a sketch and I hope you'll join in too. I love using sketches - they are a great way to push yourself into trying a different style than you normally favour. We'll be picking a few of our favourites to
This month's sketch came from Jennifer (who is also now on the sketch DT for Scrap365 mag!) and we have quite different styles so it was great to try and create something from one of her layouts. I used some left over pieces from Echo Park's This and That Graceful collection which was one of the first things I ever bought from S J Crafts. I'm down to the final bits and bobs so this was a great sketch to use them up on. I've made SO many layouts with these collection packs and loved every one of them - they really work out great value for money.
I was very brave and used Jennifer's style as inspiration to add some droplets of Mr Huey's mist and scatter my embellishments around a bit.
I love these photos that I snapped at a baby shower nearly 18 months ago. I sneaked some shots of my nieces and their cousins eating cake which kept making them squeal "Oh no! Aunty LJ!" The incoming baby was blue flavoured and the blue icing matches so well with the aqua in the collection. I love it when that happens ;-)
Why not pop over to the blog and see what the other designers have made using the same sketch. Maybe you'll be inspired to have a go yourself?
Bye for now
