The Tribe (Sketch #077-family)

The latest sketch is live at Twisted Sketches!  This week’s twist is, appropriately, ‘family’ any how, any way.  At first, I thought this would be a rather difficult sketch and idea to work with.  In fact, it was!  I came up with this page almost quite literally at the last minute.  I had finally decided what photos I wanted to use.  As I was rummaging through my drawers of paper, I came across Bo Bunny’s “Beau Jardin” line that my wonderful husband got me for Christmas a couple years ago.  Most of us out there totally understand the “I don’t want to cut such pretty paper” syndrome.  That’s how I felt about these papers.  However, every since working with Twisted Sketches, I have found that I’m not so scared to hack into them anymore!

Anyway, this week’s sketch was a fun one!  It allowed me to add some of my own flair to the page.  All I did, for the most part, was just tuck random die cuts under the photos.  Such a simple technique can add so much visual interest to a page.

I also decided to play with some Glimmer Glam.  It might be hard to see, but the solid cardstock has Glam in “mermaid” slather onto it.  It add a nice sheen and glitter to the papers.  Other products used are Prima, Stickles, Bam Pop frames, Petaloo “Color Me Crazy” flowers, Cosmo Cricket “DeLovely”, and K & Company “Greenhouse”.

Thank you for taking a peek!  Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
