Sketch Support Add- On Sketch

Did you know that Sketch Support has Add-on Sketches? 

These are little sketches that are great for embellishing, making shapes or even using for altered items. They are the perfect little extra to make you think outside of purchased pieces and inspire you to make some things of your own.

The add-on sketch this month was some terrific pieced together leaves.  I chose to incorporate them into a layout.  Take a peek in the bottom left corner.  What a great way to use an embellishment to pull several colors together for the entire page!  The picture and background being almost all green could have made for a pretty page, but using the leaves gave me an opportunity to pull in whatever other colors that I chose.

This is a picture that I took in the side yard right outside of my scrapbook room.  We have lots of fawns every spring in our yard.  We love seeing them, especially when there are twins.

 You can see the close-up of the leaves from the Sketch Support add-on sketch here.  To make them, I cut strips of several different patterned papers, stacked them on top of one another and cut the angles all at one time so they would match up in the centers.

 I am wild about all of the baker's twine on the market right now.  I love how you can add little details with it.  I chose three coordinated colors, pierced holes in the paper under the frames and at the edges, then finished it off with a bow.  I loved how it fit in the grooves of the corrugated frames.

Be sure to go by Sketch Support for more great ideas using the add-on sketch! You can print off this sketch there, as well as, two page sketches, one page sketches and even card sketches! There are lots of cards, altered items and more layouts there.  Don't forget to share your pages at the Sketch Support gallery, too!
