Shimelle’s Sketch of the Week

001crop

Here is my take on this weeks sketch – see here for the original.

I have used some old Creative Imaginations papers which I bought at Scrapbook Sisters a few years ago. I don’t have much of it left but this sketch gave me the opportunity to use up the bits I do have left.

I love walking by the sea – it’s my place to get away from it all, relax and refresh so my scrapbook pages are often using photos that I have taken by the sea. In fact I have a separate folder to keep all my seaside themed scrap papers in.

Apart from the papers and some cardstock all I have used is some Glossy Accents, a white journaling pen and three large Dovecraft brads. the thing that I found most difficult was the journaling - not what I wanted to say but hoe to present it on the page – in the end I went for simplicity and hand wrote my journaling on a piece of cardstock – thank goodness for Herma, giving me the ability to change my mind and my scrapbook page!
