Sketchy Sunday no.167

This week's sketch is another of my 'found' sketches and shows one of my favourite shapes, the parenthesis. I use these time and again in layering on both layouts, cards and more recently mini albums and ATCs. So, here we have it, sketch no. 167.


Make the layers with different patterns or textures and throw in some glitter layers to really make it pop. 

This week I got bit by the ATC bug and tried my hand at these little art panels. I'm sold on these and have already made a few more with a different paper line. For these three I used the Simply Creative Go Wild paper pad, mixing in some glitter die-cuts and of course my goto gems. 


The die set I used here is one of my favs Clocks by First Edition.


This little stamp set pictured is my latest bargain, a frugal £1.25 a set at The Range. There are six different font sets available and I'll definitely be hunting down the other five. 


The clock brad shown here was also a bargain, picked up at Poundland for a set of eight. I've used these loads, although usually not as brads just as decorative charms. 

If you haven't tried ATCs I'd recommend it, the little panels make quick, but very satisfying projects and a great way to use up your favourite paper scraps that have been languishing in the scraps file. 

Happy Scrapping

Movies watched this week:

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets - a beautiful looking, but heavily flawed movie
A Family Man - Gerard Butler stars in this drama about discovering life's priorities
I Am Dragon - Russian fairy tale, beautifully shot
Frailty - Bill Paxton stars and directs this creepy supernatural thriller - Pick of the Week
