Today is Wednesday and that means that the latest sketch is up and live at Twisted Sketches. This week's twist was "write". Funny thing is, I absolutely HATE journaling. I like the stories. I like the look. I like the sentimental value. I just HATE doing it. Sooooo instead, I decided to use a stamp--that had writing on it! I know! I'm lazy. But what can I say?? I hate journaling! Another "out-of-the-box" element for this sketch was the use of tags. I've made a couple before, but I've never really used them. The three tags on this page I made using some distress inkpads, a stamp by Inkadinkadoo, Ranger archival inkpad, and some glimmer mists.
I decided to use some fun, bright papers and do a "showcase" page of my 2nd daughter, Andrea. I absolutely love Theresa Collins' "Freestyle" line for girls. I loved the grunge appeal and how it's mixed with the fun oranges and pinks.

I wanted to keep the page in line with Andrea's personality. She's funky, fun, soft at times, and incredibly smart. I tried to use a variety of elements and details to highlight these qualities.

Other supplies used are Punchinella, Amercian Crafts Thickers, K & Company die cuts, BamPop frame, flowers and tickets (both unknown), and acrylic paint.
