Flipping Sketches!!!

I love using sketches so this month's challenges at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog have been right up my street.  August has been sponsored by Sketch Support who have some super sketches on their blog (and two books of them for this month's prize - details here). One of the things I love about sketches is that you can twist and turn and flip them to create whole new pages - here is a double page spread I made with July's Counterfeit Kit for a challenge over on UKScrappers based on a recent Pagemaps sketch from June 2011 - the left hand side sticks fairly closely to the original and the right hand side is simply the sketch flipped upside down.  Throw on some stars and some extra shapes to tie the the pages together and the two halves make a whole!


Anyway, back to the CKCB and August's 3rd CKCB Challenge: to use one of Sketch Support's sketches but flip it in some way first!

I used this single page sketch from June to make a card for Challenge #1 and I used the same sketch to create my page for this challenge- turning it through 90 degrees first and then flipping it vertically!

My thanks go to Ally & Nic at my local crop who helped me with the title: I couldn't think of a punchy title and was explaining that my friend and I were looking deeply unattractive in our snorkelling masks when they started singing "Deeply Dippy" by Right Said Fred!


Can you see the likeness to the sketch?  Everything is from my August Counterfeit Kit and the flowers are again based on a tutorial by Dapfnie which is available on UKScrappers here.

I've seen your top LO on UKS and admired it hugely, and love your Deeply Dippy Lo too - course you can see the likeness to the sketch. :)

I love your High Jinks pages in particular - super colours and shapes, and all working together so well. Genius.
