Scrap Shotz Project 12 of 2012

Welcome! Welcome! Welcome to Scrap Shotz's version of Project 12...in 2012! It has a nice ring to it; doesn't it??? :-)

Throughout the year, I'll post sketches or inspiration for you to create a project. Using the sketch or inspiration, you may create a layout or an altered item or a card or a mini album or...or...whatever your heart desires. As you can see, Project 12 at Scrap Shotz is wide open; we just want to inspire you to create.

The fine print:  I'll post the sketch or inspiration the 2nd Tuesday of each month - so you will have one month to create and link your project to me. I will make a draw for a prize and announce the winner when I post the next sketch or inspiration.

For the month of January, I chose a sketch from Valerie Salmon of Got Sketch? This sketch is very versatile as you may scrap either 1 photo or up to 8 photos! This sketch is also easily adaptable to a 2-pager by creating a mirror image for the 2nd page.

Here is my interpretation featuring the December Scrap Shotz monthly kit. Notice I created a mirror image of the sketch, used circles instead of squares and changed up the journaling.

Supplies:  Bazzill (cardstock); Simple Stories (pattern paper, die cut stickers, alphas, mini alphas); May Arts (twine); Close to my Heart (red gems): Versamagic (chalk ink); Copic (black spica)

Here are a couple of close-ups of the layout and how I made the sketch and kit my own.

Personally I like a lot of texture and dimension on my layouts. This can be easily created using pop-dots to raise some elements. Another technique is to "decorate" the die cut stickers.

I also used my Copic spica pen to add a "frame" around the layout. The wonderful trait of the Spica pen is its subtle glitter of the ink - it was perfect for my Christmassy layout!

Let's see your Project 12 of 2012!!!

I hope you will join me each month for Scrap Shotz's Project 12 of 2012! Please post your Project 12 layout in the comments section to be eligible for a blog prize!
