Sketchy Saturday Duo

Hey friends! Are you loving Brande’s recent pages as much as I am? Her take on the Paper Issues sketch is just too awesome. I’ve been playing with some of the same sketches; I think we worked on the PI sketch on the same day. (Love FaceTime!)

I used up the last of my Pink Camera kit on this sketch. (Sadly, that store is no longer in business.) The Basic Grey B Side scraps inspired the colour scheme, and I added a lot of random chipboard and embellishments that have been hanging around my stash for way too long. I love how that Nailed it stamp turned out over the chipboard banners. (It’s from an older Scraptastic kit.)

I can’t believe I hand wrote the title, but hey, it worked!


Since I was in a sketchy mood, I painted a background for the February Creative Scrapbookers sketch that same day.


I mixed Liquitex ink into Wendy Vecchi embossing paste to create some thick, messy circles. (It took forever to dry! Oops.) I tried several background papers behind the circle and nothing seemed to work, until I ripped the edges and added black ink. A simple black cardstock fixed the problem. A few strips of older than old Basic Grey paper anchored the page, and gave me two good places for the fun bits – a few My Mind’s Eye badges, some twine, Amy Tangerine stickers and leftover painted circles.

February 2017 Creative Scrapbooker Sketch challenge

Shar commented that this now looks like it was cut from a log, and I kind of like that! It was a fun layout.

Thanks for stopping by! Tell me what you’re working on today.
