...run to the scrap corner! What else is there to do??
We were "lucky" and got out of work early due to no power. Of course, we sat there for 4 hours before they finally decided to let us go.
Let's Capture These Sketches has some gorgeous sketches! I am so happy all my Spring pictures are in and I can try to take a chunk out of them. Here is my take on sketch #89. My pictures were a little bit bigger than I planned.
The background paper was solid and I kinda dabbed my ink pad around randomly. The mats and accent pieces were all from the scrap box.
The title box is from K&Company and I tried to dress it up a bit with a cluster of flowers. The flowers were cut up to try to get them to resemble tulips. The greenery was cut from a sheet of patterned paper from The Wild Side from Joann's. I cut the leaves and then scored them down the middle and crumpled them up a bit. This idea came from ScrapFit's Weekend Warmup Challenge #9. We were challenged to make embellishments from patterned papers. I'm so glad I found this sheet in the stash. I also used some tiny flower ribbon to give it all a final touch.
Well, halfway through the page, the power came back on! I don't what I'm happier about....having my computer back, or the air conditioning.....
