It's the first day of 2019, and the first day of the month always means there's a new sketch up on the Sketch N Scrap blog!
Here's sketch #168, designed by Lisa Hidy:
And here's my take on it:
I used a couple of pictures taken at the Apple Barn in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This is a sprawling property with restaurants, shops, a cider mill, a winery....I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting! We enjoyed a beautiful day there with friends of my husband's who recently moved nearby. As usual, I used a mixture of different products on this page. Part of it is Echo Park's Celebrate Autumn from my November kit from The Scraproom. One thing I love about Echo Park is that many of their lines are interchangeable in color and style, I mix & match Echo Park lines a lot! The deep red and the bits of yellow are from last year's Fall Is in the Air.
I decided to use some distressing techniques on this page, for a rustic, country feel:
On the edge of the red paper I used my CTMH edge distresser. On the edge of the woodgrain I lightly sanded with a fine grit sandpaper, just enough to give it a distressed edge. The leaves were cut using my Cricut and a free cut file from Paper Issues.
Come play along with us this month at Sketch N Scrap with this sketch and the others that will be posted throughout the month, hope to see you there!
