In the past I've been posting my scrap "stuff" on my family blog. I'm challenging myself to get more scrapping done and I'm hoping to be posting a lot of creations in the near future. Therefore, I don't want to bore those that are checking in to see what my kids are up to and so goes the opposite - those who want to see my work, may not give a hoot about the kidlets...lol. I'm not moving my work already posted over here though, so check out Hansen Happenings if you want to see some older stuff.
Anyway, one of the challenges to myself is do do more challenges and sketches. I sometimes have a hard time getting started and I think that often is what keeps me out of my scrap room. That and the fact that it's usually a pit in there!
My first card sketch I've ever attempted is the 2 Sketches 4 You - Kazan Sketch 2 that was posted this week. I must say that I really enjoyed using a sketch. I kept fairly true to the sketch, although did modify slightly.
As for the products I used, I was excited to get a RAK in the mail the other day from Rusty Pickle and I'm assuming Jill was behind it :-) It was a bunch of things from their Pop Star Line. It's an all black and white line that is very doodley (if that's a word). It's a little out of my comfort zone, but as they say it was "Picklelicious" to work with. I cut out some doodles from two different papers to piece the frame together and cut out the flowers (put a pop dot behind the little flower for dimension). I used a teal Sharpie and a pink Zig to color them in a bit and also used a Rusty Pickle Thanks rubon that I already had in my stash. The only non-Rusty stuff are the two felt flowers. They are from the Berry Sweet line from K and Company. I was looking for some brads to put in the middle and happened to notice that these matched perfectly. Love when that happens by accident!
I have another card floating around in my head to use those papers on, but that will have to wait until another day!
