Twisted Sketches

The sketch this week was another great one...that I turned on it's side. That just seems to work better for me and my little layouts!
Oak Park - Twisted Sketches #73
The twist is "Black"
Supplies used:
- pattern paper is new Kaiser Craft
- Ribbon is unknown and the ruler tape is Tim Holtz
-Brads are from Making Memories (canvas) and American Crafts (black rhinestones)
- Alpha stickers are Doodlebug
- Rub ons are Basic Grey (from their new travel line), Hambly (silver lace), old KI Memories (Love Elsie, Xmas line) and Rouge de Garance (those black lines)
- Tickets are Jenni Bowlin (star) and Tim Holtz ("live")
- the shiny gold tape is Tim Holtz metal tape
- and the word stickers are from the new Cosmo Cricket line which I am totally in love with!
- vintage bingo marker
- black thread from IKEA
- shiny stars
- label from DMC embroidery floss
A technique you might be interested in:
Instead of using paper to make the blocked background, I used my sewing machine to stitch a rectangle on the background paper. I wanted to be able to see the text come through, but I also wanted to mark off that area. You could also achieve the same result with watered down paint or ink, vellum or a transparency.
Check out all the other interpretations here. And leave the ladies some love!

These are some photos from our Portland trip...I love carnival rides at night! We had a lot of fun here. During the walk back to the bus stop, Lucas kept complaining that we took away all his fun, and he was really mad at us!
