Sketched Table Art

Oh how I love fall and coming together with those we love & cherish. There are so many things to be thankful not just at this time of the year but all year long.

With that being said, it’s is at this time of the year that we think of what we are grateful for.  I live in Canada so we’ve already celebrated our Thanksgiving but I know that many of my US friends are getting ready in anticipation of this festive time.

So I decided to create a sign/layout that can be displayed on a coffee table, mantle or buffet table.

I used the Curio to create this project.  It’s a beautiful design found in the Silhouette Online Design Store and I decided to use a sketch pen to create the image. I used a bronze metallic colored sketch pen and love how it turned out.

 

I chose the pencil line setting for the words and the pen setting for the leaf design on the outer edges. It was just a thicker image and had a bit of an offset image to it which I liked.

After the image was sketched I simply peeled off the backing of the Printable Adhesive Cardstock and adhered to some patterned gingham paper and then to another piece of patterned paper with a woodgrain/pallet look. I love how it turned out!

Cari Locken

HI there! I’m Cari Locken from Langley, BC, Canada. I’m a wife and mother of 3 amazing kids! I have been crafting since I was a child and love the creative outlet that this hobby brings to me. My formal training is in the area of music as I have a Masters degree in Music and I am currently teaching Band (to Grades 5, 6 & &) as well as private piano lessons. However I always find time to dig out my scrappy supplies and work on a few projects here & there. I love creating scrapbook layouts, preserving the everyday moments and special memories of our family life as well as creating cards & home decor items . Other than scrapbooking I enjoy spending time watching my children play sports, reading, knitting, photography and cooking. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Silhouette Team!
