Sketchy Thursday sketches appeal to me. The design team offerings are often a different style than mine - but I'm ALWAYS happy with my layouts when I use their sketch. Which proves the value of a good sketch - it will work for an infinite number of layouts and styles.
This week I tried the sketch as presented, but before it was glued down, I managed to turn the sketch upside down - and that works too.
Wanna see the sketch?
My whole page (except the 12x12 base) is SCRAPS - how great is that? I just dug through the drawer until I found enough that would "go" together. Did I do OK? I wasn't sure about the stripe under the "s" so not much of that shows.
"Brains" and the "arrow" are on coasters. Glue your paper on the coaster (or chipboard) with SU's glue stick (good product!) - then run through the big shot with your alpha die - THE SIDE YOU WANT TO SHOW DOWN AGAINST THE DIE.
You are right, the arrow isn't an SU die exactly - when I ran another letter through, I got part of a lower case "k" - so I snipped the two "legs" on the right and added a straight strip to make an arrow.
The "n" and the dot of the "i" are popped up on dimensionals. The "n" so the library clip would fit and the dot so the "n" wouldn't be all alone.
ALSO - I sponged some Sahara Sand ink on the green dotted strip - the dots started off PURE white so I dirtied them with the ink to tone it down.
