Well, I did it!
I've been taking Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook class at Studio Calico &
I challenged myself to make a card & a layout for each sketch
and finish within the first week of June.
(I needed to do this because last year, I hardly touched any of the sketches
and I didn't want to waste my money this year and sign up again & then not do them.)
Well, yesterday, I finished my layout and card for the last sketch!
So, here is the layout I made with Sketch #8:
I used some Crate Paper patterned paper as my background.
I also wanted to use some of these Crate Paper chipboard frames that I
had from their The Pier collections, but they were a little too yellowy to match
the background paper, so I painted them with white acrylic paint.
The chipboard letters from the title are Pink Paislee from 2009 or so --
I had bought three packages at one point and was struggling to find a title
I could create with the letters I had leftover. LOL!
A few close-ups.
I stamped the "far from perfect..." stamp (above) and the "for the books" stamps (below)
from the stamp set I got when I signed up for the class in Altenew Paper Bag ink.
This sticker is from Little Yellow Bicycle and it's from the same time
as the chipboard letters, because I remember using them to scrapbook our
trip to Denver that we took in 2009.
I love using up things from my stash!
And for my card, I used Papertrey Ink's Wee One stamp set
along with my new Altenew inks.
I love these new colours!
The deer is stamped in Paper Bag, the larger bird in Caramel Toffee,
the rabbit in Buttercream, the butterfly in Frosty Pink,
the smaller bird in Grapevine, the fox in Coral Berry
and the leaves in Frayed Leaf.
Thanks for looking!
