This month, Shannon at The Scrapping Stamper sent us this sketch:
I was immediately puzzled about what to do. I didn't have any shaped paper like that, so I used a homemade template to cut some. I knew exactly what pictures I wanted to use, but it meant my journaling wouldn't fit into the spot on the sketch. I decided to move the journaling and the title off the main area. That meant there wasn't room for the second side of the shaped paper. Oh well!
Inspired by the recent Fiskateers Winter Stamp Out, I used two swirly stamps and Versamark ink to create a subtle pattern on the brown paper. It didn't show up well in the scan, but I love the way it looks in real life. I also used stamps for the title and the date block.
Here's what I made:
I'm looking forward to the next sketch!
