Sketchabilities #52.....

It's the 30th, so that means a new sketch is up over at Sketchabilities!!  Here is a look at sketch #52:

And this is what I did with it:

When I first saw this sketch I knew instantly that I wanted to use the circle as a typed journaling spot.  To do this I made a template by cutting a circle out of computer paper, marked where I wanted to layer a photo over it, and placed it up to the computer screen as I typed. I liked the results, but I wish I had made my circle a bit larger so that some of the type didn't go right up to the edge of the circle--next time I will remember this!

I chose to base my color palate on the photos--orange, blue, green, and yellow--and this worked great because I had just gotten my July kit from Studio Calico which was full of paper and alphas that worked.  Am especially in love with the green and cream paper that serves as the foundation of my lo--wishing I had ordered more of it....

So head on over to Sketchabilities and check out what the rest of the design team came up with! AND remember, if you share your project with Mr. Linky, YOU could be chosen to be the next Guest Designer!
