Happy Valentines’ Day! Hope everyone’s having a jolly time with your special someone or with your pals out! (Vday is not just a day for lovers and couples… but also a day to celebrate friendships too) Anyway, its Sketchabilities time again. This week features this beautiful sketch by Karan, and also a chance to win a box of supplies from 13arts if you do link up your pretty sketches with us on the site.
This Vday layout features a favourite photo of mine from Christmas dinner last year. Turns out, the layout’s coincedentally pink too, thanks to the really gorgeous cherry blossom themed papers and embellies from Kaisercraft’s Cherry Blossom collection! (Soooo pretty can’t wait to make another layout with the remaining papers green/pink coloured papers i’ve got!) Managed to also complete this layout within an hour too! fast and furious ~
The faded 2nd copy of the photo which was incorporated into this layout had an interesting back story: I originally printed that piece on the wrong side of my photo paper! Imagine the horror upon realisation that you’ve wasted one precious piece of photo paper. hahaha. But… the effect from it was amazing that it wasn’t a waste afterall. :) I had actually wanted to put that faded print out along side the normal one – mirroring this sketch, but then I also wanted to put the orange quote card as a title to the layout cause it was so apt for this piece… sooo that’s how that faded piece took a back seat in the layout in the end.
Thanks for coming by.. till my next layout x
