This week, Bernadette (SC username scrap2010) is joining us with her take on our sketches. Her pairing of colors with neutrals stands out in the gallery, and I was eager to see her take on one of our sketches.
Here's a look at this week's sketches - our layout sketch comes from Shanna Noel's gallery:
And the card sketch is from Lea Lawson's gallery:
Bernadette chose to work with the sketch layout, translating it into 12x12...I love all of the texture on her project, created primarily with paper!
Supplies: Marks & Co Scrapbook Kit
When I got the sketch I was very excited because instantly I had a clear idea in my mind. After I selected the photo for my page and the paper from the Double Scoop Scrapbook Kit I knew that I wanted to translate the sketch into a 12x12 page. First I used my Gelatos to create an extra layer on my background. I loved all the rectangles Shanna used and incorporated them into my page by cutting the paper in rectangles of different sizes. I matted my photo on tissue paper and wrapped Bakers Twine around it. At the end I used my beloved Amy Tangerine stitching template from the Marks & Co Scrapbook Kit to create my title.
Bernadette's use of random sized pieces of the same patterned paper makes a great base for her photo, and the distressing of the cardstock and papers adds a simple bit of texture!! Thanks so much for joining us this week, Bernadette!! If you'd like to see more of her work, please check her SC gallery or her blog.
