A BG Sketch!


Ok so I was jumping up and down when I got the email from Kelly Goree. Yes - THE Kelly Goree! I love her work (who does not! Anyway she sent me an email about doing a layout for the February Basic Grey Newsletter following a sketch. My friend Ria Mojica did this a year ago and we were all excited for her! I'm so happy I got the chance to experience it too. Plus, my layout got to sit beside the artwork of Heather Keller who was a co-DT member of mine from Scraplovers.

I used papers mainly from the Mellow line, and added a little from Romani, Pheobe,and Recess (journaling strips). Other materials: Basic Grey Chipboard and rub-ons, Urban Lily rub-ons, Prima Say It With Jewels, Autumn Leaves buttons.

lOvE this Iris! It makes me want to try using sketches! (I'm not very good at following directions ;) lol But since it's about interpreting the sketch, maybe I could give it a go! TFS!
