Vitamin 'C' - Creating With Sketches book giveaway!
My scrappy pal Kristine Davidson over at Creative Scrappers has just released a book of sketches called "Creating with Sketches". The e-book version is available NOW, and the print version is available for pre-order, shipping in March. This publication has 100 plus 1 sketches, 50 talented, international designers, and NO ADS! 50 fabulous pages of inspiration for you.
I was lucky enough to get to participate in this project, and the layout you see here is my contribution. Kristine has graciously given me an extra copy of the e-book to GIVE AWAY here on my blog - would you like to win it? Just leave me a comment on this post - tell me if you like to use sketches a lot or just once in a while?
I used some of the new Ruby Rock-it Vintedge collection on this layout. I'm so happy about the reds in this collection - they are 'cool' reds that really go with a lot of my son's clothing (often I find reds are too orange). I want to dig up all of those 'too hard to find papers to match' pictures of him in his red shirts, ha ha!
Love, love, love the laser-cut wood from Scrap Désirs. I painted on a little glimmer glaze to give these a more metallic look. I went really light with the glaze so the warm shade of the wood would still show through, and it gave a really interesting weathered-metal effect (not sure if that shows in the photo).
And the story behind the title. :) These label stickers are also part of the Ruby Rock-it 'Vintedge' collection - awesome for short journaling.
Don't forget to leave a comment here, if you would like to win an e-copy of the book - I will draw a name February 12th.
