Sunday Sketch with our Guest Designer, Christine Newman

This week we have our guest designer, Christine Newman (U.S.) playing with our weekly sketch. She has used the My Mind's Eye wood paper as the backdrop for a wonderful, playful, embellishment-filled layout.

To play along this week and for a chance to win $5 to spend at CTK store, upload your projects based on this week sketch to the CTK gallery. You have time until Oct 18th and please include "Sketch 10/12" in the description.

I created a page about our trip to Maui and bicycling down the volcano Haleakala.  I used the October scrapbook kit, plus white cardstock, vellum, and sequiins from my stash.

When a piece of patterned paper has word art in a corner, I love to incorporate that into the overall design of my layout.  Biking down a volcano seemed appropriate for the adventure theme!

I typed out journaling in Photoshop, then printed it out on white cardstock and cut them into strips.  Then I adhered them to the page.

I cut out part of the title, the word "bicycling", with my Silhouette digital cutter using white cardstock. 

I layered embellishments and diecuts around my photo, propping some up with foam adhesive to create more dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!!
