August is here and it's time for another reveal with the new DT at Sassy Lil' Sketches with two new sponsors too! Here's the fabulous sketch by Cherie Averill. Seriously, I'm always inspired by her sketches! Every time!!
So this week was a one photo sketch... I always have a hard time sticking to only one picture on a LO (because I always take waaaay too many pictures on my trips! lol!) My solution was to do a 9-photo contact sheet instead!
This is a LO about the "fauna" that we encountered on our trip to the UK last summer. Cows by the side of the road (and the roads were so narrow they almost had their head through the car window! lol!) My favorite, the highland cows, so cute with their long hair and big horns. Sheep everywhere! And of course, kitties! :)
I made this LO as a companion to the one I did on the "flora" of the UK (which was scraplifted from Lisa Tottle) .
I think I've mentioned before that I always do two pages for my travel albums, but I don't make "double layouts". I make two single LOs that kind of "go together" (same paper, similar sketch...). (I do that because I don't do both pages at the same time... there often is a long gap of time between my 1st and 2nd pages!). But in this case, I couldn't really use the same papers, because the flowery, pink and purple papers of the flowers pics didn't match with the animal pics. So I tried to tie in both LOs as much as I could by using a CS base (which I rarely do!), misting the same butterfly in the opposite corner, using the same alphas for the title (but inked in a different color) with the same little butterfly bling, and by curling the edges of my paper layers in the same way. They ended up not clashing too much side by side in my album, so I'm happy!
So go check out what the other DT members did with this wonderful sketch right here!
