Club Got Sketch

A couple of weeks ago I promised you a layout. Unfortunately I've been under the radar as I've been suffering from severe migraines. Yesterday I visited a Chinese doctor and had my first acupuncture treatment in an attempt to resolve my physical issues. I'm not sure if it would already have any effect, but I feel significantly more energised. Let's hope it's all uphill from here.

Next Monday, March 21st Valerie Salmon is starting an online class which will last for eight weeks, where you will create eight layouts along her sketches. You can win a free spot to this workshop by leaving a comment on her blog.

I've already created a layout for the first sketch and I can tell you it's gorgeous. The layout that I promised you is along sketch 112. You can view and download this sketch with examples on the Got Sketch? blog.

Here's my layout:

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Bascis Paper | Patterned Paper: Basic Grey (Offbeat) | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Calendar Basics, Fillable Frames 4, Friendship Jar Fillers) | Ink: Stampin'Up (Chocolate Chip + Baja Breeze) | Punches: Martha Stewart | Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts | Rhinestones: KaiserCraft | Computer Font: Avenir

I've used quite old papers by Basic Grey for this layout as I wanted them to compliment the pictures, and I didn't want to convert them to black and white. These seem to be the perfect fit. I guess there is a reason to hang on to old lines, as you never know when they come in handy.

My other layout is still work in progress. Not sure when I get a chance to finish that one, as Ruben's birthday is coming up in a couple of days.

Until next time.

Hoi Lisette, wat vervelend om te horen dat je zoveel last van migraine hebt. Ik hoop dat de acupunctuur je echt zal helpen.
Je layout is prachtig! In een flits zag ik de foto's en de kleuren en het woordje "ijskoningin" kwam in me op. Blijkt dat nu precies de titel te zijn. Het klopt dus gewoon.
