Time to Drive


So even though our poor craft room was torn apart and a mess. I managed to clear a 12x12 spot to craft, being around craft stuff and not crafting was just killing me. Especially since cleaning dug up so many things I was dying to use! So here is the page, I worked with two different challenges.

The lovely sketch came from Stuck?! Sketches , which I love all that negative space! I was so excited when I saw I could use three pictures since I gripe about sketches that don't feature a lot of pictures and here I used one picture. 

The color scheme came from the picture and also fit the color challenge palette from The Studio Challenge.

I tweaked the color palette slightly, instead of hot pink I used red to match the car. 

So here is my page: 

I think the color palette works perfectly with the picture, since my pictures always inspire the color theme or theme to my pages. The orange paper is from DCWV's Spring & Summer Stack and the great highway sign paper is also from DCWV, Travel Stack. 

The little stop sign was one of my clean up finds! As well as the red car. I thought the little stop light was just too cute. I love adding little theme touches. 

Now I want you to go to those fabulous blogs and join in the fun challenge. 



  1. Wow such a fun page, love all the car details especially the little keys! So glad you joined us at Stuck?!

  2. Love how you added the keys to the circle making it look like a keyring... very clever! Great take on the sketch and awesome job on the color combo. Thanks for joining in with us at STuck?!

  3. LOL! You sound like me when it comes to being frustrated with sketches that only compliment one photo. Laura is so great about including lots of pics to tell your story. Such a fun take on the challenges! Love all those little, traffic bits! Thanks so much for playing along with us in The Studio and at Stuck?! Sketches!
