Adventurous Sketches and Little Kit Tips

CD15 - Fall Sketch_zpskrlvszj5

I have this month’s sketch challenge for you today. Here is your sketch!! It’s a fun one. Steph designed it based on Niru’s wonderfully sweet LO here for inspiration.

Processed with VSCOcam with e1 preset

And here is my take.


I replaced the larger photo for a piece of patterned paper instead. I also moved my journaling from the left to inside my box.

I thought as I’ve used my October Kit to create this LO, I would share a couple of little tips with you.

Firstly, if you are anything like me and you find yourself loving both sides of the patterned paper, then find a way to use both sides. Work out what piece will be covered up and cut it out like this.


I just cut a big hole out of the back as I knew my large piece of patterned paper would be covering it up anyway. I really wanted to use the flowers on the back to do this…


So pretty. Much too pretty to be on the reverse. And because I do like to balance my designs out a little, I cut another smaller flower out and added it here.


I also played with the wide washi tape from the DITL Kit here. Oh how I LOVE this washi!!

I cut a piece off.


And cut a triangle out like this.


I did this 6 times to create this look.


It’s so fun!! It would make great bunting too.

So if you fancy playing along with this month’s sketch. Please add a link to your work and upload by the 20th October 11pm EST. The lucky winner will receive $10 to spend in the Daisy store.

Happy Scrapping!!
