Guest Sketcher

Oh my goodness was I ever so surprised and honoured when I got an email from Anna Bowkis from Pencil Lines asking me if I wanted to be a Guest Designer!!

How could I say anything but yes!
So I designed this sketch first of all (Anna did it up very nicely for me in Photoshop) and then made a layout to go along with it. I thought briefly about cheating and doing my layout first, then designing a sketch around it, but I stuck to the 'rules' :-)

I used a mix and match of products from my last Studio Calico kit and one of the add-ons, as well as a bunch of stuff from my stash.

I love that the gorgeous Pink Paislee Sweetness paper I used for the background was reasonably neautral but still so patterned/stamped/distressed that I didn't have to do a thing to it!!

And I did put some hidden journaling in that KI Memories pocket because this page is one of the last of my 'Month in the Chair' layouts - the last photo from November.

I'd love if you popped over to Pencil Lines to see the full layout, leave me some love, check out what all the talented DT have done wiht my sketch, and perhaps even play along.


  1. TOTALLY Stunning, lovely take on the sketch.

  2. Wow, congrats Natalie, that is awesome news! I just popped over and had a look at your full reveal and I love it! A fabulous sketch too, I can see lots of room for interpretation there (just the way I like a sketch!) Well done! XXX

  3. Very pretty Nat. I love this sketch so I am printing it off to have a go.

  4. Both the layout and the sketch were absolutely darling :) Thank you!

  5. Congrats on this wonderful opportunity! You do great scrappy work. :)

  6. Congrats on the Guest DT at Pencil Lines, how cool is that. It's a perfect fit for you and your funky style. This layout is beautiful, so pretty, so girly, so elegant. Loving the beautiful embellishments you have used.

    Have a great weekend Natalie.

  7. Thanks for your nice comments on my blog! I really love this sketch!
