Simple Sketches #12!


Sketch #12 was revealed yesterday at Simple Sketches! It's a 2-photo sketch using one portrait and one landscape picture, with a circle foundation.

I actually used three photos for my layout, substituting two smaller (2x3) photos for the portrait picture. For the background circle, I used my circle edge punch (the Flower Arches cartridge) for the first time. I really liked it! So easy to use and makes a great deco edge! I used some old K & Co. paper and some miscellaneous left-over strips (once again!).

The page title means: "Enjoying the Terraces". When we travel, food is far from being one of our priorities. Usually, we'd rather spend time visiting than sitting at a restaurant. But on our trip to the Netherlands, we realized that we actually enjoyed sitting down at terraces, relaxing, enjoying the views and the food! No more skipping meals like we often did before... I guess we're getting older and "cushier"! lol!

Last week's sketch was also a great one! It's on my to do list!

Go check out the rest of the team's reveal and join us us too!

Have a great week!


Simple Sketches #10!


Today is the reveal of sketch #10 at Simple Sketches! I really enjoyed this week's sketch! I love a good multi-pic sketch! Here it is:

I used the same number of photos but I changed the sizes, using two square pictures instead. I used a distressed wood pattern for the background (by My Mind's Eye) and simply added a bunch of grunged up miscellaneous strips of patterned paper. I love keeping all my leftover strips in a jar (as in this pin). I can always find strips that match what I need!  

I used corrugated cardboard and embossed chipboard alphas (the latter inked to make the letters pop), a felt flower, a cork flower, a wooden label, a metal tag colored with alcohol ink, and a metal/vellum tag with a bit of twine tied to it to add different textures. And I inked everything up!

The title of my page means "Two Is Better!" This used to be the tag line for an old milk commercial here (One glass of milk is good...but two is better!) I applied it to my orange kitties, whom I love! I never particularly liked orange cats before... that was before one of them walked into my backyard and stole my heart 7 years ago! This past winter, another one strolled in the same way. I couldn't help but to take him in too. I love having them both! They're such good-natured cats! (Although the young one can be a handful! lol!)

Check out the rest of the reveal at Simple Sketches! Hope you join in too!

Have a fun and creative weekend!
