Aaaaand another fun Scrap365 sketch is up on the Sketchbook365 blog! I really, really enjoyed working on this one, especially since this is another lay-out I can add to the USA album I mentioned earlier this week!
The latest issue of Scrap365 came out yesterday and I was surprised and happy to find it in my mailbox this afternoon!
It’s a mini book special, so loads of mini book ideas, loads of stunning lay-outs too and I have a tutorial in there that shows you how to create your own wood veneers!
Back in March Liesbeth came to visit me on a Saturday. We just hung around, talked and talked (like we always do) and we played tourist in my city. We endured sun and snow, took a million photos (Liesbeth forced me to bring my DSLR) and drank way too many hot chocolates. It was a fun day!
It’s fascinating and fun to see how some of the others not only used the same sketch, but also the same papers/stickers and still we all ended up with totally different pages in our individual styles. You can see for yourself at the Sketchbook365 blog!
The funny thing is that something about the sketch felt oddly familiar when I went to create something with it. And it wasn’t until I had finished that it occurred to me that Birgit had shown me the original art work a while ago…
OK, I understand you can’t see it very well on an image this small… Just find yourself a copy and check it out IRL! The techniques used on the lay-out are pretty cool and you may even recognize the people in the photo ;-).
Onto my own project!
Thanks to generous Basic Grey, I got to play with the pretty Basic Grey Knee Highs collection pack for the occasion. I love the colours of this collection, they’re so bright and fun. And although this is a girl themed collection, I think most of the patterns are really versatile and can be used for non girly pages too!
The photo was taken with my iPhone using the Dblcam app (at our local IKEA restaurant). The app needs a little getting used to, so my first attempts were well, interesting…
Now go and check out the sketch at Sketchbook365 and play along! It’s definitely fun, there are more than enough ideas there to get you going and you never know: you might even win something!
