That leads me to today. I've been browsing at Sketches in Thyme for a while now, but have never joined in over there. Well, now I can say I have, with not one, but two sketches!
The first is sketch #96. This is a favorite photo of mine. I've been struggling coming up with the right idea and this sketch was a great one! A simple Bazzil CS matte, punched withe a Fiskars border punch and tied with random twine. I used Queen & Co, Target, and some other washi tape on white CS then used an EK success punch to create the chevron-like strips. I used some of the leftover punched out pieces to create the corner clusters, splattered a few different colors of Mister Huey and Tattered Angels mist. A few yellow buttons to round out the yellow Doodlebug letters and I had the LO I was imagining!
For this one I used sketch #97, but I converted it into a one page sketch. I'm kinda washi tape crazy, so it's kind of appearing on a lot of my pages right now. Busy photos mean a simpler design for me. But simple doesnt mean I cant use patterned paper! I stuck to the 3 primary colors that stood out to me, red, yellow and blue and repeated them throughout the page. I wanted to imitate the imagery of the balls going around and around, so I used circles where I could with the brads, 7 Gypsies tape, the blue tape and Stampology journal stamp.
Thanks Sketches in Thyme for inspiring me with some great sketches!
