Now that I'm part of the Studio Calico club - I decided to go on over to the Sunday Sketch challenge and see if anything there piqued my interest. When I found this sketch I was initially a little befuddled.
First, I don't do double page layouts. Next, I've never been good at rocking the grid - although I might give it a try the next time I have 3X3's in the house. Third, for some reason the left side of the sketch read like a card to me. This is most likely due to my inherent need to layer things. Finally, the example layout superimposed both sketches and I just couldn't wrap my head around it - despite the fact it was friggin' cool. Then I scrapped four layouts and posted them on the blog. A few hours later, my mind was still going and I was ready.

I decided to stay with the basic foundation I used all day on Sunday. I sprayed the Heidi Swapp Mint Green Color Shine Mist and really liked the results - finally a positive departure from the splatters (that I love by the way). Then I went to work. I decided to do the left side of the layout combined with the bottom third of the right-hand side of the sketch. I thought I'd just set down the pieces and move on to something else - but the crafty bug had hit me...and I didn't stop until I was finished.

So that's it for this week (for now). I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday. Until then...
