Got sketch? {pink paislee}


Today I am sharing a layout on the Pink Paislee blog for Got Sketch? week. You can see the sketch at the bottom of this post or on the Pink Paislee blog.


I used the Portfolio and Artisan collections to make this page. I absolutely love working with the Artisan papers. They really take mists so well and allow you to make custom, heavy-weight papers that exactly match the look you are going for. 


For this effect, I used 3 or 4 Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists and rubbed them around on the paper with my fingers. I spread the darker colors to the top and the lighter colors to the bottom. It created a great ombre look.


I also used the mists to tint the clouds blue, and there are mist splatters in the chipboard stars.


Thanks for stopping by here today. I hope you'll visit the Pink Paislee blog this week to see what the other designers did with the sketch for the month.

This monochromatic layout is genius!! So clever how you strategically and subtly placed the blue washi to bring out the blue in your son's shirt! Great take on the sketch!
