You Are Super Cool {Stuck?! Sketches May 1 Reveal}

We've got a new sketch up at Stuck? Sketches. As always, Laura made a super-cool sketch for us to play with:

I made another page to give to one of my students:

Here are some details. I cut out the super-hero monsters out of my all-time favorite Sassafras Lass Monstrosity paper. I have a thing for monsters on my scrapbook pages, and these are just so fun! When I saw that the green monster had a cape on him, I thought of super-heroes, and decided on the title You Are Super Cool. I based all my colors and product choices on those monsters. I think the background paper is from a BasicGrey paper pad. The other papers on my page came from my scraps drawers. I had to add googly eyes to my COOL word, which are old BasicGrey chipboard letters. The star is a clear sticker by Simple Stories.

That awesome circle chipboard piece is by 2Crafty--I have scads of their wonderful chipboard pieces from when I was on their design team. I colored it black with a Faber Castell PITT pen and added enamel dots to some of the circles. 

I used another clear sticker from Simple Stories on the tag--it was the perfect shade of yellow. I cut an old October Afternoon paper along some of the dots to create a zig-zag border. How perfect that I had that stripey fabric brad in my stash to match all the colors on my page!

I used some blue watercolors on the background and added some tiny black triangles from a Kaisercraft stamp, and at the last minute, I decided to add that #Cool in the corner, another clear sticker from the same Simple Stories pack as the other bits.

You'll want to come play with this awesome sketch. Not only will you have a blast, but you can also win a gift certificate from our generous sponsors:
