SUNDAY SKETCH SERIES NO. 41

THIS WEEK'S SKETCH

THIS WEEK, IN HONOR OF REMEMBERING 9/11, I WANTED TO DO A LAYOUT SPECIFICALLY TO MAKE A TOP 10 LIST - A LIST OF THINGS I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO, AND THINGS I MAY HAVE TAKEN FOR GRANTED HAD SUCH A TRAGEDY NOT SPARKED THE FEELING THAT WE ARE NOT INVINCIBLE, AND THAT WE SHOULD LIVE EVERY DAY TO THE FULLEST. ALTHOUGH I MADE THIS SKETCH IN REMEMBRANCE OF 9/11 AND LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST, THIS SKETCH IS PERFECT FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO MAKE A LIST OF ANYTHING FROM THEIR FAVORITE FOODS, TO THINGS THEY WANT TO ACCOMPLISH! IF YOU'RE READY TO GET TO LISTING, CHECK OUT THIS SKETCH AND SEE HOW I TURNED IT INTO MY LAYOUT TITLED 'LOOKING FORWARD'.

TO TURN THIS SKETCH INTO A REALITY I RELIED HEAVILY ON STAMPING AS WELL AS MY OWN JOURNALING TO COMPLETE THIS PICTURE FREE LAYOUT. I BEGAN WITH MAKING MY TITLE IN ALPHA STICKERS FROM STUDIO CALICO AND TITLED THIS SPREAD 'LOOKING FORWARD' I THEN STAMPED THE NUMBERS 1 - 10 ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE IN THE ALEX & BEN ALPHA FROM STUDIO CALICO. I THEN USED A STAMP SET FROM STUDIO CALICO WITH A BRIGHT BLUE INK FROM MY CHALK PETAL SET FROM COLORBOX. THE STAMP SET HAD THE SMALL WORDS THAT I STAMPED IN BLUE AND THESE WERE THE BASIS FOR MY JOURNALING AND LED THE DIRECTION OF WHAT I WANTED TO SAY. I THEN TOOK THE MATCHING STAMP THAT SAID 'CURRENTLY' AND MADE A DECORATIVE STRIP WITH IT DOWN THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF MY SPREAD. I THEN LAYERED MY EMBROIDERED TAG, LOVE THIS PROJECT LIFE CARD AND TRANSPARENT CLOCK AND ADHERED THOSE DOWN BEFORE FILLING IN MY JOURNALING. I WANTED TO MAKE SURE MY JOURNALING FIT WITHIN THE SPACE ALLOTTED SO I DID THAT LAST! I JUST GRABBED A PROJECT LIFE PEN IN 05 AND WROTE DOWN THE ENDING OF THE SENTENCE FOR EACH BLUE STATEMENT. THE FINISHING TOUCHES LIKE THE THANKFUL TAG AND BLUE SEQUINS WERE THE ICING ON THE CAKE AND WITH THAT, MY LAYOUT WAS COMPLETE!
