Scrap365 Sketch Challenge


Hey girls =) Well I am sitting here at my craft desk and my house is eerily silent as my boys have all gone camping for the weekend. It is fun having 'me time' for the first 12 hours but once the housework is all done, I've watched a movie or three and scrapped a few layouts, it starts to become extraordinarily boring having just my cat to chat to! So thought this would be a good opportunity to catch up on some blogging =)

Did you girls know that Scrap365 mag run a sketch challenge on their blog, http://sketchbook365.blogspot.co.uk/? I entered once, next thing you know, guest designer spot,  front cover and now a full time DT position. So if getting noticed plus a great challenge with prizes is your thing, you may want to check it out. I played along this month and this is my layout...




One thing I have always loved about checking out other people's blog ( apart from scrapbooking inspiration) is coming across links to really interesting sites and discovering new things. When I trawl the net, my usual searches involve art, music and photography. So I thought I might share some of this weeks finds...if your currently bored like me and want to check them out lol.

So I found this amazing UK based photographer, Danielle Tunstall. Her work is just mind blowing!! I have a penchant for horror so this is right up my alley. Not your gory type 'nightmare on Elm St' type thing, but just scary stuff that makes your skin crawl ( think The Ring). As a suburban housewife I guess this would be my only rare source of an adrenalin rush! lol. This is her video on youtube, it goes pretty quick but if you want to see more, check out her flickr. Seriously friggin talented chic!


Music wise, I found this song by Ane Brun and haven't been able to stop playing it. Not only is it an awesome song but I just love the cryptic grungy film clip..May not be everyone's thing. My taste tends to be quirky female singer/songwriters so this does it for me =)


Right then, better be off, hope I haven't bored you =)

  1. OMG ! what a fabulous inspirational "hit" I got from visiting you today !! Love your page, the grungy details right up my alley. The two clips are amazing, the art work, photography, and animation in the first one is brilliant and the song and film clip in the second I love. My daughter has just graduated from The Victorian College of Arts part of Melbourne Uni with a degree in Contemporary Dance and her boy friend has just graduated with a Degree in Animation...I know they will both love these, thanks for sharing I'm passing it on.

  12. Your page is absolutely awesome, as always..I just love searching out all the interesting and funky details in your work, Georgia. I also watched the video, where the first 30 seconds had me uninterested, I got sucked in and watched the whole thing and loved it! I would be interested to hear more from her. Thanks for sharing!
