I'm really trying to get back into creating just for fun here, lately. It seems that I've fallen into a slump the last few years, and have only been making projects for assignments. So, I've turned to some sketch blogs for some quick inspiration.
I came across this one at Let's Get Sketchy...
The problem is that even with a sketch sometimes I don't know where to start. There are just too many options. So, when deciding if I want to try a sketch or not, I have to have some idea of what I want to do, or at least what products I want to work with. I guess that's why assignments are so good for me...it take all the thinking out of it....because when you have to think, it then becomes work :) When I saw this one, I immediately decided on a photo of Oskar...with the Tiny Tots collection from Bella Blvd.
Here is my take on the sketch:
I've also been trying to use more stamps on my layouts. I have a whole cabinet full of them that I hardly ever use. So, I pulled out a couple that I have from Stampin' Up!, and also a pretty ancient journal stamp...I think from Autumn Leaves?
Bella Blvd: Tiny Tots (Toy Chest, Alphabet Soup, Borders, Daily Details, Treasures & Text, Paper Pieces); Freestyle Sophisticates (Freestyle Banana); Ciao Chip (Stars & Hearts, Whatnots, Amorie Alpha Guacamole, Amorie Alpha Blueberry); Molly (Treasures & Text); Enamel Dots (Milk White, McIntosh); Tiny Text (Pretty Boy)
Stampin' Up!: Stamps(Extreme Elements, Off the Grid); Ink (Real Red, Basic Grey); Die (Chalk Talk)
Autumn Leaves: Journal Stamp
other: white cardstock
I'm definitely going to try to keep pulling out my stamps to use...along with some other tools that I've been neglecting.
Loved this sketch!
