Pencil Lines and Textures

blogged by me domestic goddess On 8/10/2009 12:08:00 PM
Pencil Lines and My Little Shoebox went live last night with sketch 147. I am so enjoying seeing all the interpretations of the sketch with MLS product from everyone!

Do pop over to Pencil Lines, as you will not be disappointed by all the eye candy! Please send in your layouts to the Readers Gallery. You do not have to use MLS on your layout this month for a chance to win the MLS RAK.

Here is my layout: A photo of Izzy and her Auntie Linda. Used lots of MLS!

I have been playing with textures again, this time on some photos of Izzy. Textures are a very personal thing, you either love the effect or don't! A bit of a marmite effect really, LOL. I love the aged and worn look that can be achieved. Its not suitable for all photos as I have definitely learnt whilst playing!

I love this photo of Izzy and the vintage feel!

I suggest a google search and Flickr search to be completely inspired by some awesome use of textures.
