scrappy sketch

It's a Saturday sketch challenge! I made a scrapbook page using this sketch as the inspiration, but I am having camera issues and will have to post the photo in the morning. Update - I was able to finally get the photos to upload to my computer, but they aren't as good as I had hoped.

This is a photo of my sister and her husband in Rome at the coliseum. I distressed the page to give it an aged feel to compliment the coliseum.

The Rome is chipboard covered in white craft ink, then 3 layers of glassy glaze to make the letters look really shinny and stand out against the distressed background.

For now, please try out the sketch yourselves, and make sure you go to Lauren's blog to add your creation to Mr. Linky on her blog.

Also, be sure to check out the rest of the team's creations.
