Unscripted Sketches #140

Well, if you haven't played along before here is what you do. Each week Unscripted Sketches posts a new sketch. It is meant to be an inspiration or jumping off point for your creativity. You take the sketch and make anything your heart desires. It can be a card, layout, altered project, cake...anything. The link your project, so we can see what yummy goodness you come up with. This is the current sketch....

Here is what I came up with...

This sketch gave me a really hard time. Even though I am round, I guess I don't work well with round. I finally ended up with this. It is just a small calendar I made for a friend. The papers are actually scraps from the Echo Park For the Record collection. I guess it is no big surprise that I used Echo Park since they are my go to paper now. I just love them. I need a few more of the collections though. I guess it is even less of a surprise that some of Tim Holtz's distress ink found their way on to the project. There there is Vintage Photo around the circle applied direct from pad to paper and a foam blending tool with vintage phot added the color to the calendar pages.  The calendar template was free at Splitcoast Stampers. I believe the person who posted it was named Cat. I would love to see what you do with the sketch.

What ? You want to know what I have been making......

I know it is after Christmas, but I am sharing a Christmas craft I made for a friend. I had to make something that went with the words, "Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree." It was extra challenging because she loves teal/turquoise, so I wanted to make it in that color family. I have been looking online and love the coffee filter wreaths and trees. I was looking at my glimmer mist and perfect pearl sprays and know what I had to do... What do you think? I started to do a tutorial, but there are so many out there it seemed redundant. If you really want one leave me comments and I will do one. These are super simple and super cheap to make. They are stunning in white and would make beautiful centerpiece for a wedding. I think I am going to do one oncream to keep in my livingroom year round or how pretty in hot pink with a green or zebra bow for a little girls  room?
