Sketchy Smiles

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

I love using sketches.  Sketches for cards...sketches for scrapbook layouts....they're all fun!  Sometimes when I'm working with a sketch something magical happens and the pieces of the composition move into different places.  That's what happened here.

I received a some new stamps and dies in the mail recently and used a sketch from Unscripted Sketches as a starting point for my new toys.  (the lovely ladies at Unscripted Sketches don't seem to mind if I stray from the sketch a bit)

Somehow this poor old woman wandered into the composition.  I kept her there because I love old photos.
old photos+card sketches=lots-o-fun!

  6. Oh my, I LOVE this!!! Old fashioned, yet trendy with the triangles. Totally makes me laugh : )

    And, I love old photos too. I've been collecting them for about 20 years. Mostly photos of home interiors ... but I'm always on the lookout for "interesting" people as well.

  7. Hi Michelle....This card is awesome. Love the vintage feeling of it but also the modern quirky twist! :) It's so cool. I also wanted to take a second to thank you for the sweet comment you’ve left on my blog. I’ve been out of town for almost two weeks, just arrived home late last night. <3 Candy
