Deconstructed Sketch No. 14

Oh my goodness where did this week? It seems like Monday was here just yesterday and now we are targeting in on Friday. By the time most of y’all read this I’m going to be sitting in a school meeting, most likely sorting out my calendar of lessons for the next week or two. I just can’t believe how fast summer flew by. I’m going to have a second grader this year (HOW DID THAT HAPPEN??) and a Pre-K little man. Both are SUPER excited to get started next week. Are your kiddos heading to school soon?

Alright let’s get started on some sketches, eh? First up lets pick a winner from last week!

The Deconstructed Sketch 14

My Sample

And here’s what I put together for this week.

Jen Shults DS14

This was one of those cards that just made itself. I LOVE that! I used some gorgeous My Mind’s Eye paper and colored Lil’ Pinkette Pippa from Tickled Pink with copics to match the paper. I’ve started a new system with my papers and coloring and so far I like it. I pick to sheets of paper from any paper pad and most of it’s 2 sided so that gives me 4 to work with and I color after I pick. It’s made it SOOO much easier to coordinate my images to the paper. Anyhow, after I colored her I cut her out with a Small Deckle Rectangle from Spellbinders and sponged inside the die with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then sponged a little more ink on the designer papers and glued it all together. I added a bit of twine thread from American Crafts and popped the image up on foam tape. Last thing I did was add a bit of doodling here and there. I’m loving the way that looks. I always like stitching on cards but I can’t sew at all so this works for me!

Here’s a closer look at Pippa:

Now let’s see what the design team made:
