SIT #119

Thursday, August 8, 2013

It's time for Sketches in Thyme's first sketch of the month, y'all!  Woohoo!  I challenged myself, this go around, to create a page without using a stitch of patterned paper.  I've also shifted the photo panel closer to the center of the design, but I think you'll still find the basic form of the sketch below.  Enjoy!
I started this layout by inking through a trio of templates, in Tumbled Glass, Pretty in Pink, and London Fog inks, onto the textured, white, cardstock, base page.  I then smudged a mix of water and Patina Glimmer Mist over everything, before placing my photos, which were matted with Whisper White cardstock, in their respective locations.  The "SNOW VERY Sweet" title was created from aqua, shimmer alphas; white, Remarks letters; and a Cameo-cut, from Pink Pirouette cardstock, "Sweet", which I later glittered.
A trio of large snowflakes and a handful of little snowflakes were die-cut from textured, white cardstock and scattered throughout the page along with a few bundles of white string.  A "LOVE YOU FOREVER", dimensional sticker, as well as a "BEING WITH YOU MAKES ME HAPPY" tag, ground the left side of the design...
and a stamped, in Jet Black ink, "lovely day MAR 25 2013" date, as well as a pink, chipboard medallion...
and a "this moment" pennant, round out the right.
A bunch of epoxy brads and a bit of "THIS" flair complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from The Studio's August Multiple Photos Challenge and Scrap Friends' Colour Palette #15.
And here's this week's Challenge #119 sketch to get you off and running in the right direction.
Don't forget that you have until the end of the month, on Saturday, August 31, 2013, to link up your takes, in the right hand column of the Sketches in Thyme Blog, to be in the running to be named one of our Top 3 and have the opportunity to guest design with us during the month of October.  Thanks so much, as always, for stopping by!  Have a fabulous Thursday!
