The Lets Get Sketchy, October 1-2018 sketch is a beauty! The sketch features a couple of photos (yahoo love that) and triangles (a current favourite, second only to cloud embellishments which have my eye these days).
Here is a peek at the sketch:
Anytime I see triangles on a sketch I think outdoor, adventure, hiking and mountains. I have see triangles works so beautifully on other layouts but for some reason cannot switch of the “triangle = mountain” button in my brain. So I reached for some geocache photos from Salt Spring Island, British Columbia a few years ago with my dad and littlest brother and the Simple Stories, Cabin Fever collection.
The Simple Stories, Cabin Fever collection was perfect for documenting this memory! I am so digging buffalo plaid these days and that bear sticker from the collection is just too cute. In fact Mr. Plaid McBear deserves a close up:
I also used the matching Simple Stories, Carpe Diem Roughin’ It Plaid Washi Tape; Bazzill Basics Cardstock – Avalanche; Tattered Angels, Plain Jane, Simply Sheet Matte Mist – Rich Brown; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher; and some Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to stick it all down. Oh and some string from my stash.
I created a 4×6 journal card as well so I could document the story of these photos – I had some an amazing time, I wanted to make sure I wrote down all “the feels”. I will attach the 4×6 journal card using a Simple Stories, Photo Flip. These Photo Flips are the perfect solution for adding journalling to your layouts without writing on your actual layout!
