Mandy's Sketch LO Structure....


One of the things we thought here at Scrap Therapy that would be helpful, is to show you how we either constructed our Sketch LO's or extensions of them in various ways...
 

Today, I thought it might be an idea to show how I put together my sample Sketch LO for July...
It's  main features are the washi tape, splotches and sewing (other than photos of course- big smile)

 
 
 
Adhere the strips of washi tape.  (I took a vertical orientation) This is Tim Holtz Tissue tape - its a bit porous and will soak up some of the liquid.  Just using an eye dropper - put it into any spray mist you might have...or a watercolour paint mix  that you could easily make up yourself - and then drop from a height randomly.  This will make great big slotches! 



 Dry off  with a heat gun (not too close to the washi tape though)



Once the mist was dry, the sewing machine did the rest by running up and down the edges of the washi tape.   It doesn't necessarily have to be machine stitched - an alternative would be to use a ruler and black pen to give the edges definition too. 




 
 
Add a bit of zigzag for interest...




Here's the background structured....


 
 
 
More fun parts... add the photo and embellies......





The tattered edging is scrap paper torn from a spiral notebook, and the border is just drawn with a black pen

Thank you for showing us how you've constructed your page, Mandy. I might try a scrap-lift (if I may) just to get my scrapping mojo back.
