Guest DT Heather Landry: Just Add Water!

Hi everyone! I'm back with the next in my series of guest design team posts here at Flamingo Scraps. I have a lot more sketchy inspiration for you to check out today.

I created my second page using a sketch from The Scrappiest. Liz creates sketches with clean lines and interesting details. I've saved all of them to my hard drive for later use because they are that great!

I don't usually layer photos on top of one another so the sketch really made me think outside the box. I tend to be a very linear scrapper.

Supplies: I used the Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper, doilies, chipboard, and stickers that I purchased at Flamingo Scraps to make this page. I used the Seafoam Green Maya Mist again to lightly mist the background. I also used Prima E-Line Gems and Flowers.

As I worked on my page, I came up with a quick tip for altering Thickers on layouts with a water theme. I placed these yellow Thickers on my page for my title, but I thought they were too plain. To dress them up a bit, I added diamond glaze on top of the letters. Even when the letters are dry, they still have a wet look that works really well with the photos! I've included a close up photo so you can see the details.

Here are your links to two more inspirational sketch blogs! Be sure to bookmark them for tons of inspiration when you are ready to use your Flamingo Scraps goodies.

1.) Ideas For Scrapbookers-  You can find sketches from many talented ladies all in one place on the Ideas For Scrapbookers blog. I may be a tiny bit biased since I'm on the design team! You can find sketches that I've created here as well as tutorials much more by an amazingly talented group of ladies.

2. Pencil Lines-  I really like this blog because the sketches are really easy to work with and the design team members are usually some of the first to use new products. It's a great way to get a peek at what all of the new lines look like in action around CHA!
More of Heather's work can be found here on her blog!!
