While I was busy being pregnant and miserable, my favorite sketch blogs, Sketchy Thursday and Pencil Lines decided to call it quits. I am still upset, Sketchy Thursday's sketches always struck a chord with me and between their great sketches and amazing DT, it was instant inspiration. Anyway, I've been blog surfing a little trying to find new sketch sites and in the process, learned about CSI. You've GOT to check out this challenge site, it's SO much fun!! I desperately tried to put together my layout yesterday for Case #20 and get it submitted in time, but, I just wasn't fast enough. I did however complete it from start to finish in one day...thats practically record breaking for me!! ;O) Of course, I got no work done and my house is a disaster! ;O)
So, here's a quick synopsis of how it works, you have to complete a sketch (cards don't count) using all 5 colors provided, 2 options from Evidence, and 1 from Testimony. They even provide digital papers and embellishments to download and print!! I used...
Evidence: Insects/Bugs and Kraft Background (I snuck a mushroom in just on principle)
Testimony: Set Journaling on top of something and Inspiration Word: cute (in my journaling)
The other site I learned about while I was blog surfing was Sketch Savvy. It's absolutely fabulous and reminds me a lot of Sketchy Thursday sketches, but, even better!! I chose to use Sketch #70 from back on January 20th.
