Scrapping Everyday Miracles July Sketch Challenge

It is the third Monday of the month which means it is time for sketches at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  The first sketch is a card sketch I put together and the second is a layout sketch by the very talented Shawn Lahr of Nuts About Sketches.

I stuck pretty close to the sketch for this, the only variation being the strip of washi tape that I ran between the squares and large strip of patterned paper.  I punched the scalloped circles from patterned paper and added rub ons as needed.  I finished them of with some gems.

Patterned Paper- Bo Bunny Press
Tape- My Mind's Eye
Stamp- Stampin Up
Ink- Clearsnap, Ranger
Gems- Recollections, JoAnn Crafts

I was working with limited supplies on this one, so I got creative with the Bo Bunny Noteworthy pad.  I cut the notepad side off of a sheet and added it on the right side of my page and cut the bracket side and used it at the bottom.  I layered quite a few things in the bottom corner; paper, stickers, trasparency and a gromlet.  My journaling is on a transparent journaling spot.  I smeared white acrylic paint on the back so that the writing would stand out against the background and to give the feeling of snow.  Finally, I did a little stamping and embossing to add a few snowflakes to the background.
