The Memory Nest - Make It Monday 46

Already time for the second August sketch at The Memory Nest. And it's another humdinger!
So much going on in this sketch, it makes for a swift and easy spot of scrapbooking. I had this fabby photo to use, but because of the direction of the main viual I needed to flip the sketch. I find it helps to print out the sketch and then hold the paper up to a window to trace the outline whenever I flip sketches.

I picked up on the t-shirt colours for both the background and the elements on the page and added in a little purply grey card to link in the black and white parts of the photo.

I've learnt how to achieve this focal colour photography effect - which I absolutely adore - from an online Jessica Sprague course  - Digi 4 Back For More.  It's such a fabulous course, I'm learning so much and highly recommend it.

I just had to fit my journalling in on the main part of the page as it's such a hoot and so precious. I more or less copied it straight from my son's text message. I'm so looking forward to visiting them and being introduced to the cows!

And a closer look at that grid of circles. Do the the wavy line ones make your eyes go funny?

Papers: SU, Fresh Prints; Chatterbos, Scrapbook Walls
Alpha: Lawn Fawn, Louie's ABCs
Punch: Woodware, circle
Die: Clearly Besotted, Journal It

Well that's me done for today. Now it's over to you. I'm looking forward to seeing your colours and how you interpret the grid of circles and reading your journalling. Be sure to share your pages, or cards, here.

And keep crafting!
