It’s Louise here again with 3 LOs to share. I love using sketches when my mojo needs a bit of a kick start, and there are so many available on the Internet, and of course we have our very own monthly sketch challenge for you to play along with.
Quite often I have ideas for LOs spring into my head when I’m in the middle of doing something else, so I usually grab a pen and quickly scribble down the idea as a rough sketch. Believe it or not, the sketches below are the ‘tidied up’ versions… the originals are often really scruffy, and sometimes drawn on receipts, old packaging and other bits of paper found laying about. This month I’m sharing 3 of my sketches with you, and showing how I’ve used them to create 6 LOs. I chose a selection of papers to use this month and a couple of cute stamps from Elle’s Studio. A list of all the papers I used can be found at the end of this post.
I had lots of photos taken of the children dancing along to Just Dance at New Year, but none of them were particularly good quality that they could be scrapped individually. I made 3 of the best into a film strip with a black border, which meant that they were small and so the picture quality was less important.
I chose the yellow spotty paper as my background and chose a couple of My Mind’s Eye stamps that I’ve had for a couple of years. Using versa-mark and clear embossing powder I added more detail to the paper.
Once the embossing had cooled I gave the LO a very light spray of white mist and then teal. Wiping the residue from the embossed areas with a bit of kitchen towel.
Tomorrow I will be back with three more LOs using the same 3 sketches in a different way.
Please feel free to use the sketches to inspire you, and if you do drop a link to your blog/gallery in the comments box so I can come and have a look and leave you a comment.
