Shimelle's Sketch

This is the first time that I have taken part in a sketch challenge, or actually any challenge. I have also rarely posted any of my pages online, so this is a bit of a step for me! I always say I am going to take part, but never quite get around to it. 

Here is the sketch

This sketch inspired me to scrapbook some daily pieces of my life right now. I have been on holidays, so life has been very relaxed and easy going around here. After a very busy term, I decided to take it easy these holidays.  I don't often create pages about myself (they usually include my nieces and nephew), so there is a lot of steps outside my comfort zone here!!

Here is my page : 

I lightly misted one side of the patterned paper with grey glimmer mist before adding the other items. I am really enjoying using mists on my pages at the moment. The colours are a bit brighter in real life than they show up here, still experimenting with photographing my layouts!

I loved taking part in this sketch challenge, and am hoping I can keep it up once term starts back and everything gets busy!


  1. I love your take on the sketch this week. I also LOVE glimmer mist. My fav colours at the moment are 'Bell Bottom Jeans' and 'Walnut Gold'.

  2. I do like what you've done with the sketch ~ I'm still looking for inspiration to strike!

  3. love your take on the sketch - haven't done mine yet!

  4. What a lovely take on this sketch! Very clean and minimalist but the PP you chose adds just the right amount of colour and shading. Still working on my version :)

  5. Oh this is a great layout! It's what minimalism is all about. Simle, clean lines, but great to look at.

  6. Thank you all so much for your comments! These are the first comments that I have had on by blog, so thank you for taking the time, it means a lot to me!! I am still working out this blogging thing and am trying to find out how to respond to each of your comments individually so please forgive me - hopefully I will work it out soon.
