Stuck Sketches

My school library is all packed up and summer vacation is here!!  Now I have lots of time to work on my scrapbook pages. 

I have been working on my Spring Break photos from 2012 when we went to Florida.  I am just about done.  The following LOs were based on the Stuck Sketches for June.

The first Lo has photos from the day we went to the beach.  My son took photos of us reading and hanging out.

The second is from the day we went on the bus tour to the Everglades.  This photo was taken at the end of the day when everyone was a bit tired.  I used gesso on the background paper and then added some color to it with my spray inks while it was still partly wet.

June Shape Challenge at SBC

The theme for this month at Scrapbook Challenges is Heritage & Genealogy. 
It makes me think of all the ways we celebrate in my family.  We don’t go out to eat at restaurants often so when we do it is a way for our family to spend time together.  One of my husband’s favorite restaurants to eat at is Denny’s.  There aren’t any around where we live so it is not too often we get to go to one (the closest one is at least 2 hours away).  When we were on our spring vacation last year there was a retro Denny’s in the nearby town that we visited.  We traveled past it several times on the way to the beach and other day trips. It was on a 2 lane highway and we were usually on the opposite side of the highway.  We were able to go there for lunch, once we figured out how to get to the other side of this 2 lane highway.  This is the LO that I made from that day.

My challenge to you is to use rectangular and square shapes on your page.  You can use long rectangle strips like I did and then rip them to make some shorter strips.  See how many you can use.  Try to not to have round corners on your page.  I did use a small wooden bird which has a round belly, so go ahead and use 1 thing that is round.  I can’t wait to see what you create!
