The lovely Jen sent me some fab chalk studio papers recently, really beautiful papers, with a chalk board design on one side and some beautiful co-ordinating patterns on the reverse. After stroking them (as you do) for a while, she mentioned that she was sponsoring a fabulous sketch challenge over on the Scrap365 blog - click here to see the challenge. Once I'd seen the challenge and the papers I thought I'd combine the two to come up with my own take on the sketch.
Documenting a fabulous day at Portmeirion last year, I used these beautiful papers to create the layout, I also used the strips off the bottom of the pages to create some of the elements behind (you know the bit I mean the bit you normally throw away but it usually has a sample of the papers as well as the name etc).
Now this page isn't quite how I expected it to turn out, predominantly because my original intention was to use the back of the main backing paper instead of this side, but as I was so tired I went into cutting and sticking mode - honestly! Thankfully it worked - the large 'Every Day' element is part of the original paper - thanks to Lesley my design team buddy (click here to check out Lesley's fabulous blog which also has a take on the sketch) for this fabulous idea!
