Sketchy Thursday

8 Days a Week April 2013 Challenge Awake My Soul Jana Eubank Melanie Stanczyk Nathalie Leonelli Sketch Sketchy Thursday

 Hi Scraptastic Friends! It's time for April's Sketchy Thursday Challenge! This month, I created a sketch with a column of horizontal photos, accented with circular elements.  First up, is my take on the sketch. I was inspired by a page Carol created earlier in the month to use the striped paper as my background. I used the doilies from the Awake My Soul Add-On kit (hand cut from the Teresa Collins paper) as the circular elements in the sketch. Then I decided to fill in the spaces between each circle with the ticket-shaped blocks hand cut from another sheet of paper from the Add-On Kit. ...

April challenge #3: Using Paint!

Gather those art supplies hidden from your kids room and use those paints that you...

I have the Awake My Soul kit and add on in my hot little hands and knew I wanted to do something with the exclusive die cut included in the main.  My layout started with that in mind.  Once I got the general idea of how I wanted to lay things out I worked on my stitching locations....

Good morning! Did you open that April kit yet? I hope you did because I have a challenge for you today! :) My challenge for you is to use numbers on a page, or any type of project, lots of numbers. They can be part of your title, your background, your embellishments... or your journaling like you can see on my page below. Just like I did for February, I decided to summarize my month of March with numbers (this blog même is originally from Julie at Notes on Paper) and to present them "a la Project Life" but directly...
