Twisted Sketch #36 (check it out at www.twistedsketches.com) the "TWIST" to this sketch was "pens, pencils, and markers" anyhow....anyway!
Here are my 3 valentines! Saylor, Daniel, and Elizabeth. What I love about twisted sketches is that it gets me doing techniques that I normally do not do...in this case...I used a lot of colored pencils, markers, pens....doodling....stuff I don't normally do... but now I wonder why! it is so much fun!
used the Smitten paper from K & Co here; pink carnation, shell pink, and black colored pencils are all from CTMH as well as Watermelon pink marker, black and red cardstock used to mat the titles & the small distressing files used on the titles; the heart cupcake toothpicks I picked up today on clearnace at W - Walton brand; Hambly lace transparency on the side of the 3 photos, Anna Griffin paper (beige paper in the middle) and flower transparency in the circle bg area; I also used Prima Times Chipboard Alphbet small letters to overlap, then trace for the "valentines" section of the title; also in the title are reverse black miniature Jenni Bowlin stickers & Paper Studio white CS sticker alphabet; For the Hugs & Kisses title work...I used an acrylic stampology stamp for my inspiration...using my Precise VS pen (undoubtably the most used product in making this layout); the stitched flourish was made using a flourish stitch template from Oriental Trading Co...I was rather impressed with this template even though it is made out of incredibly flimsy plastic (let's just say I had my doubts); the trim is from Making Memories "love notes"' and other misc includes, Tombo permanent adhesive runner, Timeless touches corkboard and paper piercer, green pom-pom trim & red rickrack of unknown brand, black sharpie marker, Janlynn embroidery floss, adhesive pearls and hearts are unknown brand, EK Success 3-D pop dots, and my handy-dandy Xacto knife! couldn't live without that!
