Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge

Every month there is a new sketch over at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine.  As you probably already know, I am a sketch fanatic so I thought I would give this sketch a try.  I thought I would challenge myself to take out some mists and masks and maybe try a different medium such as some glass beads to give the layout more texture.

This was a lot of fun to create and it was fun to get inky and messy.  Purple for me is not a colour I find easy to work with but thought I would mix it with some green and blue for a more pastel effect.  My daughter adores her dog and when I was staying with her one weekend I took this photo.  I love candid photos the best.

I hope you enjoyed this and if you like to be challenged or just need a starting point then check out Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's Sketchy Challenge here.

Have a great Tuesday!


  1. What a picture! (and gorgeous layout!)

  2. Oooh...this is sooooo sweet! Love the masked doilies on the background.
