ANOTHER sketch challenge! I'm really on a roll this month as there have been a lot of incredibly inspirational sketches and product to play with. Today's layout is based upon the latest Chic Tags sketch challenge and very fitting for the latest issue of Paper Issues: The World is a Circle.
The sketch was my initial inspiration with the picture then dictating what color papers and support I needed. I felt that triangle were a more viable option than hexagons for the look I was going for. Fortunately, Chic Tags creates some triangle tags.
I used the two original tag triangles to hand cut some more out of patterned paper or tags that were in complimentary colors to the background paper I used. And, staples in my stash, Studio Calico chipboard in GOLD. Gold's everywhere now.
Some oldies but goodies! Love those wood backed camera circles form Chic Tags and the month calendar tags!
I love the understated title, playing on the title itself, Underwhelmed. Have you ever been to the Louvre and seen the Mona Lisa? I was more impressed with the number of cameras and cell phones in the air taking pictures of the famous lady than I was of Mona, herself. The number of people that moved in and out of that one room was phenomenal. Incredible people watching! I'm not sure how many of the people actually saw the Mona Lisa with their own eye versus on the lens of their camera. Very few actually stopped for more than the picture. It was interesting from a sociological stand point.
I hope you are having a great weekend! Mia is swimming in her last swim meet as a 7 year old today. She will be 8 tomorrow! My baby is turning 8... No doubt, there will be a Pebbles layout of the celebrations in the near future!
