  • August '08 Challenge - Sketch / Scraplift!

    Hosted by little old me!

    Hey Y'all! Hope everyone has been having a great summer!

    This month's challenge is an oldie but a goodie!

    Here's the directions:

    goto this website:

    http://www.pencillines.com/

    and pick a sketch.

    In your post, show us the sketch from the pencil lines blog that you chose and then your layout that you created!

    All participants will receive a free mini kit from me AT THE END OF THE MONTH!

    Also... if you are able... turn your project into share-able template if you know how (simply change your papers to ones included in the sbm software) and share here as a "quick click" template!

          Ok here is mine. I figure I better get it done while I have a minute to myself. I used a kit by Monti.
          I hope I got it correct.
          Here is the layout, the gray scale template and the pencilmap I choose.
          Hope you like!

              I am not even sure if I did it right Mary, I just saved the map as a jpg and drug it onto my page and then I made it opaque so I could see through it. Then I just added each piece and placed it. Then removed the jpg. When I was done I grayscaled each piece individually and exported it to a template.

                  as far as making a template to share....

                  what i did was used the included "cardstock" in the sbm software to replace the background and paperscraps in the template.

                  i used a shape over a paper for the flower element.

                  the eribbon is mine so i can share it.

                  y'all please be sure that when you share, you're only "sharing" elements that either came w/ sbm or elements that you have permission to share!

                  here's what my template looks like:

                    Here's mine & a thumbnail of the 'PencilLine'

                    I haven't uploaded the template as after creating it, it didn't work for me. When I 'double-clicked' the flower to change the pattern, it just became a square... am I making sense!!!

                    I've also attached the WordArt I made for this layout ~~ if anyone wants it...???

                              Cheat Sheet

                              They have the sketches available in PDF files on their website too. There are 4 per page. It is much easier to look at the sketches and decide which one to use this way <my opinion>. I printed mine but even for viewing 4 at a time is easier than 1. Now to sit with a glass of cool tea and make a decision. This will also be helpful for those who like to choose several
