Creative Scrappers

Sketch 110 went live yesterday. Another wonderfully easy sketch to work with. And lots of more fabulous pages by the DT can be viewed over on the Creative Scrappers blog.

This is my interpretation. Can't really call it an interpretation to be honest. I'm rather literal when it comes to working with sketches - which is why a great sketch that doesn't need much tweaking is right up my street!

Some fun photos from an after school visit to the local River Gardens. The colours in the photo weren't great (black/white school uniform combined with green grass and blue and yellow play equipment) hence changing the photos to black and white. Not something I do too much of because I really like the reality of colour photos - well for the most part anyhow.

The page also works with the colour combo over at Color Combos Galore this week (148).
Patterned papers - My Little Yellow Bicycle, American Crafts
Alphabets - American Crafts, Doodlebug
Journaling spot - Maya Road
Butterflies - Papermania
Rub-ons and chipboard - My Little Yellow Bicycle
Inks - Ranger distress ink and archival ink
Die cuts - Nestabilities
Other - bling, buttons, brads

Lots of bling, brads and buttons. Yes I sewed them all on individually. Whilst watching the England/Slovenia match. Well, at least it wasn't a total waste of my time ;)

I used some more of the Little Yellow Bicycle Zinnia range (I had pretty well everything sent to me as part of a prize package from Memory Makers magazine just before it ceased publication). I added some of the circle rub-ons to white cardstock, die cut them using Nestabilities dies and (along with everything else) applied a liberal helping of distress ink to the edges. The gorgeously intricate die cut butterflies are a vinyl material and by Papermania.
