Creative Scrappers #261

Happy Sunday, friends!  It's time for another sketch reveal at Creative Scrappers...are you as excited as I am?  I'm always so inspired by these sketches, and this one is awesome.  Check it out:

I pulled out the lovely Hello Again collection from Carta Bella.  I challenged myself to use these photos in color instead of black & white.  My goofy goose was digging for lost Cheerios...and I just sat there and took pictures of it...haha.  I was instantly reminded of this specific collection, and I still have most of it left over.  I get so bogged down with buying so many new collections that I barely make time to make multiple layouts from them!

I really love how this turned out.  I like that it's not my typical super bright type of color scheme.  I started with white cardstock and some watercolors.  I just added paint here and there, creating a random splotchy design to match the colors in the papers I wanted to use.  I used a Heidi Swapp template to trace those arrows.  I painted them in and outlined them in black pen.  My circle element in the center is a piece of's very lightly inked around the edges.

I just love tearing my washi just gives a fun and cool effect sometimes.  I love the variations in color from the paints here, too.  I added in some light peachy colored thread.

I cut the title on my Cameo in white cardstock and painted it to match.  I don't have any of the Cameo pens, so I just outline it by hand...kinda messy and wobbly, but I like it that way.

Love these fun flair badges I got from Studio Calico...they matched perfectly.

I hope you join us in the sketch sure to upload your projects HERE on the blog.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a great day!
