Hope you are inspired to get creating, maybe get a few of those festive holiday photographs scrapped, or create a page summarizing your 2009. Don’t forget you can rotate the sketch, substitute the 4 photographs for 2 (or however many you like!), just use the sketch to inspire you and most of all, have fun!!

Thanks for playing along and happy 2010 to you all!

Here is my creation using this week's sketch;

The Little Things

I actually rotated the sketch on it's side to use it as my inspiration. I also used some of the beautiful vinyl flowers from this month's sponsor, Creative Expressions.

Here are a few close ups of my page:

I used a LOT of Glimmer Mist on my edges... I love the Iridescent Gold colour!

I think I have a serious addiction to pearls and stitching! Can you tell?

I also used my Copic airbrush to darken some of my edges. Gotta love cool tools!


Thanks for joining in the fun! Make to hop along to the next designer for more sketchy inspiration.

supplies: patterned paper & tags, My Mind's Eye; die cut edge & flowers, Klic N'Kut; pearls, Prima; vinyl flowers, Creative Expressions; mists, Tattered Angels; ink, Copic; other, thread.
