Here are this weeks' projects (sometimes done a long time ago, but it's their week to post...)
Over at ARTFUL DELIGHT I have played along with their layout and card sketch using this month's kit....
And for SKETCH N SCRAP I played along with their first sketch for October
And now for some of my DT projects:
At THINKING THROUGH DESIGN our thought this week is burlap
My layout and thought:
I love burlap’s natural neutral color and the awesome texture it can add to a page and it was perfect to maintain the “rustic nature” feel for this older photo of my son in a tree. I also love that it can help “hide” a busier background paper. So that is how I’ve used it on this layout. I wanted to keep the “hint” of the pattern paper, but not have it overwhelm the layout, so the burlap is really nice to achieve that and also add some texture. I also used some of the little strings that I pulled out of the frayed edges of the burlap to make a nice little embellishment border to ground the photo. I also changed the color of the burlap in two ways, one by using a sponge tip and dipped it in ink to make border lines in the burlap around the photo and second by simply dripping on some red mist.
And at SKETCHES IN THYME I used this sketch for the next layout:
And finally...at FROSTED DESIGNS our challenge is WILD (use the word WILD)...
So here is a layout from Legoland
