Day 3: Clouds + Cats

7 Aug

Firstly, today pic:

There are several sketch blogs I use to get my creative juices flowing, and today I thought I’d give this week’s grid layout from Elle’s Studio a go, using an old Studio Calico kit, a goldfish die-cut from K&Co. and some Elle’s Studio items, of course.

I have some good shots of our cats from the terrace this summer, and each of them gives a clear insight into their personalities. I thought I’d try writing directly on the photos and I hope this looks as good as I hoped it would?

From top left: Sandor wants attention, Ghost is cuddly, Syrio is weird, Ghost loves sleeping outside, Syrio is shy, Sandor is friendly.

Die-cut doilies had had Tim Holtz Distress Ink “Antique linen” blended onto them and then sprayed with white Mr Huey. I really like the effect this gave.

Thanks for looking!

Ok, so after spending the weekend in front of the TV, and having my husband leave on his amazing week long motorcycle ride on Sunday, I needed something to distract me somewhat. I started scrapping again. In addition to having my own room (for office and craft area), I’ve completely taken over our kitchen table (there will be a post on this very soon) as well as the living room table! I tell myself I cannot scrap in the office as I need the desk to be clean of everything scrap so that I can use the computer on it to write my thesis. So, I’ve set myself up on the kitchen table to be close to my husband while scrapping. But now that he’s gone, I’ve started scrapping on the living room table so that I can watch TV while doing so. You don’t have to tell me, I know I’m taking over this apartment!

But! Here is the layout I made yesterday, with yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday photo! It’s based on the latest sketch from Pencillines, using Studio Calico’s June Kit, Paper Moon.

I also just noticed that I won last week’s Sketch Thursday with Elle’s Studio, one of my favorite manufacturers these days! Guess who’s going shopping?!

Elle’s Studio released this week’s Sketch Thursday, and I decided to join in. I hope this layout is not a too wild interpretation of the original layout/sketch!

I fell in love with this woodgrain design for the Silhouette, and though to have many 2.5″ circles on my layout, but I should have understood that the original size of the design is what it’s intended for. Let’s just say that I spent quite some time picking flossy cardstock off the cutting mat.

The title might seem a bit egoistic, but really… When you think about it: Don’t we all deserve some “me-time”?

My first layout with this month’s Studio Calico kit Mind the Gap, and first layout from an Elle’s Studio sketch!

I got these photos on Wednesday of my husband sunbathing. He wouldn’t define it as such, more as “relaxing, incidentally in the sun”. Either way, he seldom takes his clothes off during the summer (or winter, for that matter), so he is really white! Blendahvit, as we’d say here in Norway (‘Blenda’ being a detergent made specifically for white clothes).
