Here in my corner of Hertfordshire it's not raining (at the moment) - and there's even some sunshine. Mind you, I'm not sure how warm it is as the furthest I've been is the doorstep to get the milk!
I sat down to make something for my Sketch File project yesterday and as my mojo had upped and left I struggled finding things I wanted to use.
So I decided a slightly different approach was needed and grabbed a scrapling from the box where I keep offcuts. I'm sure you know, but just in case, a Scrapling is made from the strip that's left when you cut a 14 or 15cm square card from a sheet of A4. You end up with a long, roughly 7cm strip which you fold in half to get a tall, skinny card.
This shape always forces me to think a bit differently about what to use, placement and overall balance - somehow it's a gentle nudge when inspiration is lacking.
I chose a couple of papers to make the panel from, and then decided to keep the whole thing really quick and simple.
Scrapling: Ribbed Kraft card (PDA Woodward)
Papers; Summer Crush 6x6 (Maja Designs)
Butterfly Die (Apple Blossom)
Tab feature is hand-cut
Narrow Satin Ribbon
Pinks and Blue gems (Anitas)
The June 2016 Sketch
I "squeezed" it, then used the ribbons to echo the larger rectangle
That's it for this time, thank you for visiting
