Quite often I have ideas for LOs spring into my head when I'm in the middle of doing something else, so I usually grab a pen and quickly scribble down the idea as a rough sketch. Believe it or not, the sketches below are the 'tidied up' versions... the originals are often really scruffy, and sometimes drawn on receipts, old packaging and other bits of paper found laying about. This month I'm sharing 3 of my sketches with you, and showing how I've used them to create 6 LOs. I chose a selection of papers to use this month and a couple of cute stamps from Elle's Studio. A list of all the papers I used can be found at the end of this post.
My first LO is of Drew on his new scooter on Christmas day. As he was zooming about on it, I kept thinking about 'scootering in heels' from a Sex and the City episode, hence the title 'Scootering'.
I cut the arrow frame from this My Mind's Eye die cut embellishment.
When I used my date stamp, part of the month didn't stamp out. Rather than using a black pen to fill in the missing detail I used a green pen to make a feature of the misprint.
I've been meaning to scrap this photo of Harry and I out sledging since it was taken way back in the day when my hair was lighter and longer!
The little stamps from Elle's Studio were used on this LO, and were enough that I didn't feel I needed to add a title.
The background was decorated with stamps and clear embossing powder before being given a light misting with white and then teal.
I used an embossing pen to add powder to some of the circles on the paper. The blue tint of the pen gives a subtle bit of colour to the circles.
Tomorrow I will be back with three more LOs using the same 3 sketches in a different way.
Please feel free to use the sketches to inspire you, and if you do drop a link to your blog/gallery in the comments box so I can come and have a look and leave you a comment.
