Time To Relax

The great thing about using sketches is that they can force you to try something new.  On my own I rarely think about layering different types of patterned paper.  But this sketch from Let’s Scrapreally encouraged me to try this technique and I just love the results.




These photos captured a lazy spring day on our deck last year.  The papers are from Paper Wishes’ Soft Nostalgia paper pack.  Beautiful colors!  As I was trying to think about what embellishments to use I came across in my stash the heritage scrapbooking dazzles.  These came to me as part of my bi-monthly scrapbooking kit.  I don’t have very many heritage photos so I wouldn’t normally have purchased these on my own.  But the clocks inspired the title, “Time to Relax” and so gave me a reason to use them.  I backed these with patterned papers.



I also used one corner dazzle on the top right hand corner.  I used my silhouette to create the letters for the title and added some soft texture with the ribbon below the title.



So try a sketch that will challenge your natural style.  You might really surprise yourself!
