Tuesday Morning Sketch #159

I'm excited about this Tuesday Morning Sketch because for the first time since I have been playing along (for about a year and a half) and now being on the DT, I am not making a card.  It is an altered notebook.  I love to take an inexpensive composition notebook and dress it up!!

Before I show you my creation, let me remind you that if you play along, you could win a prize!  This week our sponsor is Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  Check 'em out!  They have some cute, cute stamps!!

I am also entering this in Word Art Wednesday's Challenge #40.

Here is Melissa's sketch for the week...
With all the beautiful detail in the sketch, I thought it would lend itself well to a larger project, so I found a notebook and here we are...
I thought this verse was great because this would be a great 'blessings journal'!  And believe it or not, in real life, the waves actually match the teal in the DP!!
I even made a pen to match...
Unscrew the bottom of the pen, roll up a 3 1/2" x 3/4" coordinating paper, slide it in, and you've got a matching set!  I wish I had cut the paper so the lines were up and down or used the flowered DP, but oh well!!   I use Pentel R.S.V.P. pens for this.

Thanks for dropping by!!  Come on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and play along!!

I'm actually giggling because I saw this sketch on Shelby's blog before I came to your blog. When I saw it, my first reaction was it would make a neat notebook cover! Your praise journal is beautiful. I so like that verse, and the lighthouse is a perfect image to go with the verse.

Love the way you translated the card sketch to a notebook cover. It's so pretty. Great choice of colors/papers/images to make a perfect presentation.

So very cool! Love the variety of papers & that fabulous lighthouse image. I bet this sketch would be a lot easier to work with on a bigger scale - clever thinking :)

Debbie, your notebook is beautiful! Great idea to make something bigger--working with those little bitty shapes was tricky. :)
