The Paper Loft Sketch Challenge using Shades of Gray
Here is my take on this month's sketch from The Paper Loft. I used their collection Shades of Gray: papers include Silver Lining, North Star, Snowfield, Tinsmith and Thunder. The music diecuts are old Creative Memories.
Close up of my circles and music notes.
Of course, I made this into a two page layout! The second page is a weekly sketch challenge for a private Facebook group in which I am a member.
I continued with The Paper Loft Shades of Gray and the CM music note diecuts. This sketch had these beautiful flourishes in the corner...how could I make that...ribbon? None seem to fit the papers...then I thought about my Cricut! First I checked out my cartridge Quarter Note, where I found the title. It didn't have any really good flourishes without other images, so I turned to the Creative Memories Divine Wedding cartridge. I just finished using that for my wedding invitations, I knew it had flourishes!
I didn't want to use the tinsmith paper on top of tinsmith paper so I layered the smaller circles. I used the Creative Memories Circle Punch, Round Shape Maker and the CM Custom Cutting System to create all the circles.
