First sketch for 2011

It's my turn to do the sketch challenge at Scrap Pile this month, and here it is:

This is my layout, using Fancy Pants "Happy Together" papers:

And another layout for Scrap Pile using the same collection:

I was experimenting a bit with this layout, playing with paper curling.  I've seen it used a lot lately and I wanted to try it but grunge it up a bit too.  I'm not sure if I like how it turned out or not:

I was a bit disappointed in myself with both of these ones - I don't know if it was the photographs or the papers, but I just couldn't seem to pull everything together in the way I visualised the layouts.  Maybe it's just because I haven't had a dedicated scrap session in over a month - these were created bit by bit, 10-15 minutes at a time, sometimes days apart, in between school break ups, Christmas and New Year.


  1. I looooove the sketch, I will definitely be checking out this site!!! And I love both your layouts too, especially the grungey paper curling! Isn't it funny how other people see your creations through different eyes and feel completely different about them? Heard about the flooding going on in Oz, and hope you and all yours are safe (and dry!)

  2. Such a wonderful sketch you have created and I love both of your pages. Such beautiful embellishments.

  3. Lovely layouts Karen! Will have to get my butt into gear this year and scrap a little! xx ps gorgeous sketch, can't wait to have a play!
