...a sketch challenge... a little late.... *sigh*

Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned - it's been a month since my last blog... I think I need to say 3 Martha Stewarts and 10 Tim Holtzes for that! Now I have catchups to do...

I have a M2A sketch challenge to share (from October- ohhh I soooo BAAAD) from the wonderful Melinda Spinks ...

Here is the sketch...

And here is my take on it...

Watch me JUMP... This is my little guy having a go at a big trampoline at Kalbarri...he kept yelling out “watch me watch me” so we watched and I clicked!!

The background is a piece of Rose Moka Equinoxe Reconfort paper, with a piece of October Afternoon Egg Basket at the contrast paper. I lightly inked the edge of this contrast paper as it is so bright, just to cool it down a bit. I added some Buzz and Bloom black corduroy clouds (damn they so hard to get now!!!) and I used some great thickers Jewelry Box black stickers and Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Alpha stickers to create the title. The journalling was some chipboard inked black and I used a silver gel pen.
The tree was hand cut using 3 different papers, and I used foam tape to 3-d the trunk, and a combination of foam tape and glue to make the leaves curl up and pop up from the page.

Materials Used:
Papers: Rose Moka Equinoxe Reconfort, October Afternoon Cherry Hill Egg Basket, Websters Life Portrait Reflections (the reverse side), Jenni Bowlin Extension Black Micro Dot, Fancy Pants Like Father Like Son Big Guy.
Letter Stickers: AC Chipboard Thickers Jewelry Box Black, Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Alpha stickers Vintage
Embellishments: Buzz and Bloom black corduroy clouds, chipboard
Product used: black ink.

Okay... so that is catchup number 1.... I still have another layout for M2A, some DT projects for Inspired Crafts and the 12 Christmas cards in 12 days I recently completed for M2A to kick off Christmas projects to well as a few random bits....
Stay well and thanks for stopping past to look at my really quick post!
