Under Construction

I am totally addicted to sketches......Allison Davis' sketches to be exact. I am in week #2 of my online class with Allison, and I am loving it!

Here is my layout using the sketch that was assigned to us. I changed things up quite a bit and also tried something I had been wanting to do for a while.

These photos are of my youngest son! Matt and I were on a field trip to Doon Heritage Crossroads (this is back in 2004 when it was cool for me to attend field trips. If I even step foot in their school now, they are so embarrassed) and he is making a something out of wood.

I decided I wanted to play up the construction theme and tried out the new Nuts & Bolts collection from 3 Bugs in a Rug. I wanted to add something that would really tie the theme of the page together and make a big impact.

I searched out some colouring pages on the internet and found some cute images that I wanted to use. I copied them into word and adjusted the sizing for my page. I printed the images out several times on the different papers and pieced them together.

I was really pleased with the overall look when I was finished. I considered adding some stitching, but I felt I had spent enough time on this layout.

I can't wait to see what we get to do next week.



  1. Carolyn, I love this layout. Did you colour the photos with copics?

  2. Great job Carolyn! I love how her sketches really make the photos the focus :)
