FD Sketch Along 5.31 & a Little Inspiration!

I am so happy I got to work on FD's sketch today!  It is such a fun sketch and I love how my lo turned out.  If you haven't visited their site, check them out here.  Today's challenge was also exciting, because two of my friends from Club CK are featured as the Guest Designers and both of them had amazing lo's!  I loved seeing their work and reading a more about them in their bio. 

I was also able to incorporate a second challenge into this lo.  One of my fellow Club CKers (adogslife13), Tina is hosting a challenge this week on her blog.  Her challenge was to use one of the lamps she has in her home as inspiration for your lo or project.  I absolutely loved the shapes on the lamp and believe it or not, I had this amazing Scenic Route paper in my stash, with a similar pattern.  It just all kind of fell into place from there.  I thought I had a font that had the same shape (and I probably do), but I couldn't find it.  So, I just designed the shape in my desktop publishing program, saved it as a jpeg, and used the trace feature in SCAL to add it to the program and cut it. 

And here is what I created:

Products Used:

Paper:  Scenic Route
Letter Stickers:  Stickabilities
Brads:  Recollections
Grungeboard:  Tim Holtz
Acrylic Paint:  Apple Barrel
Embossing:  Sizzix Big Shot
Marker:  Sharpie
Font:  Arial Black
Pen:  Sakura
