My Creative Sketches March Sketch

I really love the March sketch at My Creative Sketches and I love how my page turned out.  It’s actually more of a teal color than turquoise but I can never get teal pages to photograph properly.

Enjoying Spring

Today was just beautiful – about 40 degrees and lots of sunshine, almost all our snow is gone – that’s 2 months early for us.  I also was able to get some scrapping done.  I love these UmWow shapes and have been hoarding them for a while.  Today I found the perfect page.  I used them as raindrops and painted them 3 different shades of teal to match the 3 x 4 card.  My page is inspired by the Let’s Get Sketchy Week 2  sketch rotated

Scrap Our Stash Sketch

I really loved this sketch and couldn’t wait to play with it. However, it took a completely different direction than what I’d planned, which was originally shabby chic – I ended up with a more modern page  And instead of matching all the colors to my photo I matched the colors to those in the little feather. My gold is the little heart.

Dusty Attic Mood Board

I normally would never use this color combination, especially all the purples but I really loved the photo in the Dusty Attic mood board.  The Webster’s paper was just a perfect base. I used a DA butterfly and DA fence on my page.

Misting on my Pages – Aaaaagh!

So I created this page for CSI Case157.  I really love the color palette and I love all the elements on my page.  BUT … I really, really, REALLY don’t like how my paper wrinkled and bowed because of the misting.  Everytime I pass by it I try and smooth it out – I even ironed it but it is still so warped. I’e misted before but it was never this bad.  Perhaps the paper is thicker and I used more mist but I think I may have to rip everything off and start with new paper. Then I also created a journaling circle in PSE, printed and added – for some reason it looks so fake – maybe because I printed on photo paper


from the evidence I used grid patterns, camera, polaroid frame, circles, hearts, distressing, pen work

from testimony I journaled on a circular label and used the inspiration word “captured”

Let’s Capture Our Memories Sketch 115

For this weeks sketch at Let’s Capture Our Memories I decided to go a bit whimsical.  I took 4 photos of my family at different spots in Ireland and cut them into long strips and then split each strip in two.  Originally the title was to be “Glimpses of Paradise” but then I found the 3×4 rain card from Pink Paislee and I knew I had to use it – so many outings have been arranged around the weather but in Ireland the rain is never too far away – that’s what makes it so green.  I added some Umwow rain clouds and Doodlebug pearls for added emphasis.

My Family

Can’t wait to get back home to “Ireland to visit my family.

Here’s a simple page I created based on the Paper Issues Mood Board – I was inspired by the Irish theme (my family still lives there), the lights in the top right hand photo reminded me of sequins, the green and brown colors, the lucky beige circle.  On top right I added a transparent pocket over the heart die and filled it with sequins.
