SUNDAY SKETCH SERIES NO. 25

THIS WEEK'S SKETCH

IS A SIMPLE 8 1/2" X 11" LAYOUT FEATURING ONE 4X6" IMAGE WITH A SMALL TITLE, BOTH HIGHLIGHTED BY SOME LAYERED PAPER, TAGS, AND A SCRIPT BACKGROUND. THE IMAGE REALLY BECOMES THE STAR OF THE PAGE WITH ALL THE LAYERS LEADING THE EYE TO IT AND YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH A SIMPLE COLOR PALETTE. I CHOSE NAVY, GOLD, AND SOME SALMON TO HIGHLIGHT THIS ADORABLE IMAGE OF MY NEPHEW COLORING. KEEP READING TO SEE HOW I TURNED THIS WEEK'S SKETCH INTO MY LAYOUT 'LITTLE ARTIST'. KEEP READING >>>

MONDAY MOOD BOARD 11

THIS WEEK'S MOOD BOARD

SPRING HAS FINALLY ARRIVED! (ACCORDING TO THE CALENDAR AT LEAST) WE STILL HAVE SNOW ON THE GROUND HERE IN NY, BUT I'M HOPEFUL THAT WITH EASTER JUST AROUND THE CORNER, THINGS WILL BE CLEARING UP SOON AND THE TEMPERATURES WILL BEGIN TO RISE. IN THE HOPE THAT SPRING WILL COME I CREATED THIS LIGHT, AIRY PASTEL MOOD BOARD WITH EGGS FOR DAYS! I CAN'T WAIT FOR EASTER TO ARRIVE SO THOUGHT I WOULD GET IN THE MOOD EARLY WITH SOME BEAUTIFUL COLORS, PATTERNS + DIP DYED EGGS. KEEP READING FOR ALL THE LINKS TO THESE FABULOUS INSPIRATIONS!

I LOVE PULLING INSPIRATION FROM GREAT ARTISTS, ARCHITECTS, AND DESIGNERS. I THEN ENJOY FINDING A UNIQUE WAY TO TURN THEIR IDEAS INTO MY OWN SCRAPBOOK PAGES. WHY DON'T YOU GIVE IT A TRY TOO! ...

SUNDAY SKETCH SERIES NO. 1

THE FIRST THING I DID AFTER SKETCHING MY LAYOUT WAS TO DIGITALLY CREATE THE BACKGROUND + TITLE IMAGERY FOR 'SPARKLE ON' . I THEN PRINTED THIS IMAGERY ONTO A 12' X 12' PIECE OF WHITE CARDSTOCK SO I COULD COMPLETE MY PAGE HANDS ON. 

I LOVE TO MIX DIGITAL + HANDS ON SCRAPBOOKING TO KEEP MY IDEAS FLOWING AND MY PAGES FUN AND INTERESTING, IT ALSO ALLOWS ME TO DO MORE OUT OF THE BOX SCRAPBOOKING BECAUSE I CAN CONTROL MY IMAGERY ...
