Ghost Town in the Sky - My Mind's Eye Collectable - Unforgettable collection

Ghost Town in The Sky layout
Created by Janet G. Bagnall
A New Chic Sketch for The Hens' Den designed by Design Team Member: Lori McClellan

Happy 1st Monday of March everyone.  Can you believe I am saying that?  Me neither.  Today is my day to bring you a project using The Hens' Den Chic Sketch, Created by Design Team Member Lori McClellan while using the new My Mind's Eye Collectable - Unforgettable collection.  I was so excited when I opened up my kit and found all these goodies inside - I love everything about it.

Isn't this new Chic sketch from The Hens' Den sketch great, created by Design Team Member Lori McClellan?  I love it and hope you will give it a try (please let us know if you do so we can take a peek).  I'm going to show you my completed layout in two parts so as to not overload you with so much fun - LOL :)  The one I'm showing you today is the title page.

We had taken Jared and Elizabeth to Ghost Town in The Sky years ago and when I went through my kit, came across this unique cardstock (well, it is to me) and an idea came to me.  I took a rectangle piece of brown Graphic 45 "Signature Series" Core'dinations cardstock, tore it down to the size I wanted, crumbled it up, distressed it with sandpaper and some Tim Holtz vintage photo ink and voilĂ , I got a faux leather look :)  I found the parks' name off their website, printed it out and place it on top of that.  What do you think?  I was pleased with the result.

While working on setting up my layout, I had it lined up with the strips going like what is on the new Chic sketch from The Hens' Den sketch great, created by Design Team Member Lori McClellan had  on the sketch, but after looking at it, I just couldn't get it to look right, so took those strips and put them underneath each picture.  I think it turned out pretty good.

This is a great  My Mind's Eye Collectable - Unforgettable collection that has lots of fun goodies to play with and look forward to using this collection often.  I am excited about showing you the rest of my take on this fun sketch soon.

Have a great Monday and hope you will head over to The Hens' Den store to take a look at all the great products Charlie and The Hens' Den has on hand and check out what will be a part of spot light Tuesday on the Facebook page.

  1. What an adorable bunch of pics and fun layout!! Awesome take on Lori's Sketch!

  2. Great layout! My favorite part, that the small pieces weren't working for you so you still used them but in a different way! Great example of how we can use a sketch for a beginning idea, but really make it our own custom piece! Great job!

  3. Love this Janet, the distressed paper is fabulous. Hugs, Anita

  4. This is a fun and fabulous layout Janet.
