Sketch Inspiration with Scrapbooking Global - Blog Hop January

Welcome to this months hop with the Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! Group and welcome to 2019 what a great year of hop themes we have planned for you! You are welcome to join us each month, you could even share your layouts. If your not a member already please feel free to join us on our Facebook Group HERE. This months theme is a Sketch layout picked by the lovely Shaz - the sketch photo is below.

So I flipped the orientation of the sketch to suit my landscape photo and although it has the sketch elements I have 'tweaked' it a bit. The titles are cut from our chipboard that's found at the back of our glimmer paper packets. Instead of painting them I actually embossed them. They were all embossed with white then the words Reef and fun were coloured with the Night of Navy Stampin' Blends. The other thing I did with my Stampin' Blends marker is colour the silver glimmer net and silver thread.



I left the little fish silver and they show up in various places on the layout. the close up also shows how great the silver thread comes up with the Blends marker. Did you also notice the new embossing folder making an appearance - it reminds me of bubbles so I thought it was appropriate. One of the other things I often do to elevate my larger pieces is use the chipboard from the glimmer paper again so no sagging on this photo. 

So here it is again my dear middle daughter with her favourite school teacher on a Marine Studies excursion to a local rock pool area at the beach. Gosh the excursions are better these days than when I went to school!

So without further ado lets hop on over to see what Sara has done with this sketch.
