Nathalie with you today with this week's Sunday Sketch. I love working with sketches as they provide inspiration, sort of the starting point for a project, and this week's sketch is a super fun one. So, let me show you:
I love this sketch so much that i used it to create two different projects using the "Little Things" Scrapbook kit and embellishment kit. First let me show you how i used the sketch to create a 12x12 scrapbook page:
Those ticket cut outs (created with one of this month's cut files) were a large part the inspiration for this page. Since the sketch was designed for a 8.5x11 format, i chose to extend it fit a 12x12 but chose to stay very true to the sketch through the transformation.
I wanted to play with the patterns and colors of the Little Things kit so i used some of the papers in the Scrapbook Kit and patterned paper play kit to create the tickets and layers behind the picture.
Since there is a lot of color and patterns being used in the page, a bit of black Distress Ink was used to create a neutral background for the page. Once all the layers were added to the page (as per the sketch), i decided to embellish the page using the numbers from the tickets cut outs, stickers from the Embellishment kits and lots of elements from this month's cut apart card.
To accomodate extend the design to fit a 12x12 layout, i chose to add the small fold at the top left corner of the page so that it brings interest to the page. The next video will show you how this was created using the Little Things kits:
It is amazing how a sketch can inspire to create a project, but this sketch is so versatile that i also used it to create a TN entry in my daily Journal:
Once again, i used the Little Things scrapbook, Embellishment and Patterned Paper PLay kits to create this page.
To create this entry, i chose to use the number tickets as the highlight of the page, and used them to create the background for the picture placement. To reduce the bulk , i chose to just use a reduced number of layers, and then embellished with stickers from the embellishment kit and stamp images from the Little Things TN stamp.
My title was placed using the stickers and cut apart element sheet from the Little Things kit; I chose to keep it as shown in the sketch so that it brings texture and interest to the other side of the TN entry. I typed my journaling at the bottom of this page, and added some more stamped images to complete the look of the page.
Now it is your turn to use the sketch as inspiration to create a project of your own. Remember to share with us on the Citrus Twist Kits Fan Page on Facebook what you create with this sketch, or on social media by tagging Citrus Twist Kits . We would love to see what you create.
