Always Together – Sketchy Thursdays 9.15 sketch and ScrapFIT

Sketchy Thursdays has partnered up with ScrapFIT this week for their challenge! Simply combine sketch 9.15 from Sketchy Thursdays with the theme “Friendship” for twice the chance to win. Full details are on their blogs.

For my take on the sketch, I went with the fab Max and Mollie line by Nikki Sivils. I added some stitching to accentuate the sunrays that are part of the paper’s design, fussy cut a few details to layer (the sun and 2 of the flowers) and cut out the cutie Max and Mollie characters from the cut apart page. Then, all it needed was an MME (My Mind’s Eye) Stella and Rose journal spot, the packaging from some Prima bling and a little Cosmo Cricket sticker for the journaling area. 😀 The rhinestones are by Queen and Co. The journaling reads, “Just 13 mths apart, you two do everything together & are the best of friends. We were so worried you 2 would have trouble adjusting to being separated that we started Matthew in PreK early.” Here’s the layout I created based on the theme from ScrapFIT and sketch 9.15 from Sketchy Thursdays:

Adhesives:

Helmar Adhesive Runner
Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar Gemstone Glue

Tools:

Life List Journal – Inspired by Tracy Weinzapfel

This is another fun project inspired by Tracy Weinzapfel, Pres of Helmar USA. Each week LIVE via Ustream, Tracy or Jess (Kinderstampo), presents a project and shows how it was created. Last Monday, Tracy challenged us to create a Life List Journal. It could be created any way we wanted, but here’s the the post on her blog where you can find the recorded video for hers: Tracy’s Blog

Inspired by her creation, but not imitating it, I came up with this:

I altered the cover of a binder so that I would not be afraid to play along with this challenge. I’m going to be using watercolor paper and adding pages as I go without fear that I’ll accidentally destroy the previous pages as I create! LOL

For this cover, I went with a sheet of Teresa Collins Notations paper. Cut to size, cut the detail for the top and fussy cut that fab semi-circle design, then adhered those two pieces with Helmar acid free glue. Inspired by Tracy’s multi-medium, artsy approach, I used watercolor pencils for the first time to color in the design…which was soooo much fun! 😀 I will def have to do THAT again! The quote was added using a Unity Stamp and Staz-On ink. Tracy also inspired me to *gasp* use my own handwriting, a fountain pen (you know, the kind w/a NIB?!!!) and ink. When I think about life and growth, I think green, so I went with a lovely green acrylic ink by Liquitex. TFL!
