14th Feb - Sketch

Today challenge is a... 
 ...Sketch - it was inspired by Kerry's hopes and dreams challenge layout. A little twist as it Valentine's day please add a heart in somewhere!

And a big welcome to the new design team, here are their amazing takes on the sketch.

This picture was taken in Gallipoli (Italy) last summer. I was there with my friends and we had so much fun! I wanted to create a bright and simple layout to document our last day there. "Amiche" in italian means "friends" :)


For this layout I wanted to use the typewriter that I received as a long-desired gift. I typed random letters all over the scraps of paper that I used a cluster under the photo. I might have 'cheated' a little bit as this way I managed to get away with not using a title ;) 

You can find more close-ups on my blog:

On the occasion of Valentine's Day I decided to make a layout about us. I chose a selfie shoot from December and made a 4x4" collage from it. I like to document our sweet crazy moments, these are the best. On the layout I made a layering under the photo and just added a big wood veneer title and lots of tiny embellishments.

As this sketch was inspired by a previous layout of mine I thought I would turn the sketch to achieve a different look to this layout. The fact that I have totally 'Girlied' it up makes it look totally different anyway!


I had a lot of fun using this months sketch and love how my layout turned out. I don't do the traditional Valentine's day layouts so this one is with a photo of myself and one of my best friends. I used the beautiful Crate Paper 'Hello Love' collection.

Pop over to my bog to check out some close ups of my layout: 


I loved this sketch and with Valentines Day just around the corner I had to do a 'love' themed layout. I have used Crate Paper's Hello Love collection. I have used lots of layering, sewing and thrown in a splash of gold for that wow factor.

Head over to my blog for more close up photos:

I mirror-flipped the sketch to suit the black and white photo I wanted to use. The odds and ends of supplies I used were gathered from my counterfeit stash kit.  I added some subtle tone-on-tone background stamping to reinforce the diagonal flow of my layout.


A very beautiful sketch and I was inspired by my first daughter's photo. I'm in my mixed media time :)
After putting some gesso on the background, i used Texture paste Platinum from Prima marketing , sprays from Tattered Angels and stamps. Papers are from a french company Les Papiers de Pandore.

I think the new design team rocked this sketch! We would love to see what you create using our sketch, please link up your layout in the side bar, you have until 13th March to do so.
