Hey everyone. For my first sketch with a twist challenge I decide to scrap a photo of my daughter and her aunt, taken this past summer. I used papers and embellishments from the gorgeous Posh collection by Simple Stories. I added some gesso to the background before applying the water colors. The hearts, flowers, camera and word LOVE were fussy cut from journaling cards and pattern paper. The twist is to use items from your stash that begin with each letter in the word GOALS. I used the following items from my stash: G - gesso, gold, O - overlay, A - arrow, ampersand, L - letter stickers, LOVE, S - staples, stitching, Simple Stories, splatters. I really love these word challenges as they make me look through my stash, and pick items I normally would not use. Make sure to check out Scrap Our Stash's blog as there is always a ton of inspiration to be found. Below are some close ups and the sketch. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey everyone. Here's a layout based on Creative Scrappers' January sketch and Clique Kits' January challenge. I'm so excited to become a grandma!! Can't wait for May to arrive!!! Think of the pictures!! The products used for this layout came mostly from Clique Kits' December 'Wonderland' kit. The challenge at Clique Kits was to use ink/medium on your layout. For this page I first applied gesso to the background and then ink, using a packaging technique, and finally some splatters. Below are some close ups as well as the sketch. Thanks for stopping by!!
Hey everyone. Here's my take on Stuck?!Sketches January 15th sketch. The photo is a selfie of my brother and sister in law taken this past summer. The 6x6 paper pad, diecuts and stickers were from We R Memory Keepers 'Wildflower' collection. The wood veneer pieces were from Jillibean Soup. Below are some close ups and the sketch. Thanks for stooping by!!
