Sketchy Thursdays


I've been having some more fun with the Scrapbook Circle February kit. I used the kit when I made this week's Sketchy Thursdays reveal page. The papers went so well with this picture of my son.

My tip of the day: Even if a sketch calls for multiple pictures, it can sometimes be a neat design to use the same picture over and over again. This look works best when you alternate out only one picture to either color or black & white and increase the size of that photo. In my case, I also popped it up a bit with foam adhesive.


I just love those eyes!! He was having fun with a little photo shoot for me, but I managed to snap this one serious moment amongst the smiles and silliness.

This week's prize at Sketchy Thursdays is from Storyboard Kits. One lucky Sketchy Thursdays participant will win Storyboard Kits' "Giselle" kit valued at $45, which comes complete with cardstock, coordinating patterned papers, lettering, journaling spots, embellishments, trims and more!

Good Luck!!!
