Sunday Sketch | Nicole

We know that our members love sketches, so this week we are again offering you for cards and one for layouts!! The card sketch is from Stephanie Washburn's Planetarium gallery:


And the layout is from Gillian Nelson's Planetarium Gallery:


We invited member Nicole (justnick) to choose one of these to use as a starting point this week, and she opted for a twist on the 2-page sketch. :)

Quiet 500px

Supply list: Cardstock (American Crafts), Patterned paper (Elle’s Studio),Die Cuts & Tags (Elle’s Studio), Washi Tape (Freckled Fawn), Wood Veneers (Studio Calico), Clip (K&Co), Enamel Dots (My Mind’s Eye)

When I saw the sketches, I knew right away I wanted to use the 2nd page of the 2-pager. I was drawn towards the basic grid shape, that allowed lots of flexibility in my design. I started with the basic 9 squares from the sketch and then went crazy with layering and adding lots of wood veneers! I loved the left handed part of the sketch too, so I used it as inspiration for all the layering on the page. In the end, I ended up using the sketch almost exactly – I didn’t plan on it that way, but my journaling just fell into place in the same spot as the sketch.

We loved seeing Nicole take on this project! She is a master at pairing patterned papers and embellishments together for BIG impact...thank you for joining us this week, Nicole! You can see more inspiration from her in her SC Gallery or on her blog. Nicole is also active in the Twitter community:@justnick_
