Sketchy Thursdays and The Sampler
Sketchy Thursdays has the next sketch for you to play along with. I do hope you'll join us this week!!
I was reading a thread on 2Peas that reminded me about doing 8.5" x 11" pages. I used to do these a lot more frequently and usually love the end result.
I used my January kit from The Sampler for this page. I have to tell you that there is a tube of Stickles in the kit, and I am so not used to working with Stickles. One of the benefits of being part of a kit club is that it forces you to go outside of your comfort zone. There is always the chance you'll be sent something you'd never try on your own. And I like that part of kit clubs.
What I did was put the stickles on my finger and dab the glitter on my background page. It created the "Christmas sparkle" that I was looking for, since this page does have a holiday theme to it. Not sure if that's what you would do with Stickles, but it worked well for me! :)
Thanks for stopping by to read my blog. I hope you'll stop by Sketchy Thursdays and play along. We have a great prize from Scrappy Jo's this week!!
