Hello! Happy June! It’s the first Friday in June which means Team A is up again for Sketch-y Friday at ScrapMuch? with the 2 page layout to kick off the month! I’m not going to lie, doing a 2 page layout monthly is making it so much easier for me to get back in the groove of doing 2 pagers. Between you and I, I’m loving doing these multiple photo spreads. So, here is the sketch we had to play with this week:
And here is my take on the sketch:
Supplies used: Cardstock-Bazzill; Patterned paper-My Mind’s Eye; Embroidery floss-Close To My Heart; Photo corners-Scrapbook Adhesives; Pearls-Melissa Frances; Title stickers-Crate Paper; Paint-Making Memories; Mist-Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist; Die cut-Silhouette; polka dot washi-stash; TIM HOLTZ STUFF-metal flowers, safety pin, grungeboard t and flourish, washi tape, distress ink, token, journaling tag!
I have been very very lucky to take a few workshops with Tim Holtz over the years. He is truly amazing. The pictures in this layout are from Heidi Swapp’s Creative Escape 2009 where he taught, and the day before Creative Escape officially started all teachers had a meet and greet and trunk show to display their personal works. His table was incredible! So many amazing items of interest, vintage finds, beautiful creations, etc. That was also the year of the lamps where Creative Escape teachers and alumni were invited to style the same lamp and then they’d be raffled and auctioned off for charity (the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society). Tim’s lamp sold for an amazing $29,000.00 for charity. Tim gave an amazing write up of the event on his blog.
There’s also a YouTube of the auction for charity. Note to my fellow CE alumni this will make you miss CE (and if you’re lucky enough to be attending Inspiration Unlimited create MORE excitement for Heidi!!!!).
I took a little bit of license with the sketch adding an extra photo and a journaling block, as well as the washi on opposite corners. I really wanted to capture the grungy, vintagey feel of Tim’s work. I also wanted to make sure I did journal about the event, about Tim’s trinkets and treasures, and of course, about the $29,000.00 lamp! I have *so* many photos from the Creative Escapes over the years and I’m still scrapbooking them some 5 years later. I refuse to believe I’m “behind”.
Make sure you pop on over to the ScrapMuch? blog and see what the rest of the team is up to! Then get inspired, play along and link up by the end of the month for your chance to win an awesome prize! Have a fabulous weekend!
