S.W.A.T.’s Drill #12

This morning over at S.W.A.T. drill #12 is a sketch challenge with a twist…use only patterned paper, no solid cardstock.
Here is the sketch:
SWAT Sketch Drill 12

You have until the end of the month to link up for a great prize!  Check out all the details and some great inspiration by the design team here.
I did a layout using Echo Park Country Drive.

Drill 12

I used my brand new Cameo to cut a bunch of shapes: sentiment, sun, clouds and a circle.  You will also notice Twinery twine, stickles and UmWow Studio chipboard pieces:  layered clouds and butterfly.  I threw in some cute cloud washi tape, I can’t remember where I picked it up…  This layout, although it is hard to see in the picture, has a bunch of doodling on it.  It is actually the most doodling I have ever done on one project.  I used a Tim Holtz Distress marker.

Oh and I almost forgot…stickles!!  (Sorry about the pictures…it is so hard to capture the true sparkliness of stickles!!)
