Sunday Sketch and Guest Designers

This week's sketch is an attempt to utilize different elements. I have to say that I am lucky to have such creative guest designers, because sometimes I struggle to put together a sketch and they always take what I send them and work magic with it. This week is no exception...
Lisa Watson joins us this week as the primary designer. Here is a little bit about her, "I've been scrapping for 8 years thanks to my husband who literally drove me to the first scrapbook store and made me start this hobby. It wasn't til the last 2 years that I have become completely OBSESSED with our fabulous hobby, thanks to the world of online forums and blogs. I now scrap just about everyday and LOVE it! I have 3 kids which comprise the majority of my scrapping. I love creating layouts and capturing my families memories for years to come. I am on the DT over at Scrapdango and My Sketch World and a contributing writer for a paper magazine, Michigan Scrapbooker Magazine."
This is what Lisa had to say about working with the sketch, "I started off using these great papers from Echo Park's A Walk in the Park Collection. The colors felt like school colors. The journaling spot was perfect for this school layout. I cut the green stars from the Cricut and then made them 3d by taking my stylus on the back from each point to the center and then lightly ink the lines to make them stand out a little more, added 3d tape underneath and its an easy 3d embellishment. The Jenni Bowlin Chalkboard Alpha stickers are fantastic for every school layout. The pencil was the final touch because it needed something else, who knows how long I've had that pencil but it was a very long time. "

Metal Minish is back for another week with his inspiring work. I love how he blends his passion for gaming with Webster's Pages. Brandin needs to see this :) Here is what he had to say about working with the sketch, "I looked at the sketch and wondered what would look good with it... Is it best for a less-is-more type of LO? A playful and colorful one perhaps? As I looked through my bunches of photos, and found this one of me cosplaying Link from The Legend of Zelda, it hit me... This is perfect for a nature/fantasy type LO! Or well, that is how I saw it, hehe~ So here I used lots of Webster's, which suited my wanted theme perfectly. To further make things match, and to fake an aged look, I stained the papers with some coffee using an old toothbrush."

Lisa Jamerson is also back this week with her inspiring work. She said this about working with the sketch, "I loved, loved, loved this sketch! It was perfect so I didn't change much of anything. For the flourishes in the sketch I just used remnants of the paper from my trimmer and glued them by the flowers. That is probably my favorite component."
