I've been playing around on my Silhouette Cameo, creating sketches a fair bit recently.
I must admit it seems to make the whole creative process flow a little more smoothly. I create the sketch in the software first where everything's to scale, and I can even use a lot of the shapes/embellies that I will eventually be putting on the page.
This means I get to see exactly how the finished page will look........a big bonus for the procrastinator in me!
I don't use this method for every page, especially the artsy, fartsy throw everything on there kinda thing, but for DT work where I'm trying to utilize as much of a paper collection as possible..........awesome!
So that's how it helps me.
The bonus for you.........you get the sketch (if you feel inclined or desperate enough to use it! lol).
Everyone's a winner.
So, today I'm posting the first layout from my Two Scrapbook Friends DT kit using the Modern Miss collection from Bo Bunny.
Here's the sketch:
And here's my page.....You & Me.
This collection has a co-ordinating 12"x12" sheet of chipboard die cuts so I used lot's around here........
and for the banner too...........
I rubbed a white gelato onto a heart embossed brayer (American Crafts) and randomly added a little pattern to the background.
That's pretty much it other than a little stitching to finish things off.
Drop me a comment if you manage to use the sketch as I'd love to stop by and see the results.
Have a great day.....enjoy the sunshine,
