Sketch File

I'm the proud owner of a challenge blog named Archiscraps
We do monthly challenges based on Architecture.
This month it is chevrons and blue.

To promote my blog I made this mothers day card based on a sketch at The sketch File

I've used blue chevrons.

It also features a chipboard owl and stars on the top horizontal paper.
I'm also entering it on Tuesday Throwdown where the theme is seeing stars.

Cactus mini album page

I had fun with these 2 pages and I'm still using my Counterfeit Kit mini kit.

Apart from using scraps of papers I also cut some corrugated card into a wavy pattern as an embellishment. Below my journaling was some space so I drew a cactus.

I've used some asterisks from a set of alphas as my embellishment.

4 crafty chicks

4 crafty chicks has a sentiment challenge.

I often make inspirational "happy cards". This is one of those.
My sentiment says Today it's a beautiful day
I made it sunshine yellow with some gold flowers.

Lets get sketchy and Case this sketch

Let's get sketchy has this mood board.
As soon as I saw it I thought about flamingo paper that I have been hoarding.
It matches the bright pink and the flip side is all of those colours featured.

I found 2 photos from a trip we went on through a fern laden forest.I had the road view plus a close up.
They were matted on Jade green spotted paper. I double matted the bright pink flamingo paper on a pale pink then olive green.With 2 busy papers, I needed to delineate the border.
My journaling card says happiness(also my title.)
On it I have placed a small FWAB Jack vine.
I've finished my layout with a round pink brad.
I haven't used flowers as I feel the layout is busy enough. Sometimes "Less is best".

Then using the leftover papers I went to Case this sketch

I used the pink flamingo paper as my background.
The strip is from the reverse side.
I decided the black rosette went well with it, so I've opted for bright pink/black &white theme.

Stuck?! sketch February 15th

I have a photo of my daughter's paintball team to scrap. This sketch  suited what I wanted to achieve.
I started by double stitching the 2 circles in the background. The purple card with the splats is actually a Christmas card recycled.
The other embellishments are all from my Counterfeit kit, excepting the purple ribbon at the top.
I chose the orange circle awards to contrast to the duller colours.
