Scrap Addict Sketches!





Completely incapacitated right now unfortunately :(
We are all taking it in turns to be sick - Thank Goodness
the kids are on school holidays...I am alternating between
playing nurse, sleeping, vomiting and dashing to the loo!
NOT a good situation around here at all... We definitely
have some very strange invader bug in our household 
at the moment! 

 Feeling sick has meant I haven't been able to concentrate
 on anything & have felt useless & unproductive, which
I hate, so I decided to have another go at making some
sketches {I made a couple ages ago and they were
very boring and basic}.  I'm quite happy with how these
ones turned out, although I can't decide which style is best.

What do you think???






The process was actually quite fun and I experimented with
creating these in 4 different programs and learning a lot along
the way.  I can see that the more I do the easier it will become.

Wow Helen! You do have a nasty bug circling that doesn't want to leave. I hope everyone is well soon!!!

I love your sketches!! I am going to save them to my sketch file and give them a go, if that is ok. I will link them back to here. I have sent emails and they keep getting kicked back to me.

You poor thing....not being able to create when you really, really want to is awful. I so hope you come good very soon Helen. I love your sketches, they're beautiful. I never work with sketches, well, only if I have to, but these are inspiring and I could see myself using them. Hope you feel better soon. xx

So sorry to hear you are still so under the weather. Very draining for you:( the sketches are all good, but I like the clarity of format used in number 1 the best. Hugs hxx

I find colour in a sketch distracting.

Hi Helen! That is so bad, being so sick. We have been going through the same thing... and it's school holidays too! Horrible!!! I swear these bugs are getting worse and worse!!! I love all your sketches, but if I had to pick a have, I would probably pick number four. :)

Shame so sorry to hear that you're so ill. Trust the bug will be eliminated very soon.
I like what you created, the second is my favourite though. My two cents worth.

Fluffy said...

I think the first one is my fave, but you did a great job with them. I dont think I would have the patience lol Hope you and yours get well soon, bugs are no fun! Tx

Svetlana Austin said...

shame, Helen! wishing you all get better very soon!
your sketches rock! great work!

Lea said...

Oh no, that sounds like a nasty bug. But wow, look at how productive you've been with the sketches. They all have a very clear easy to use style so I say go with the type that was the most fun to do. I'm looking forward to seeing more of these from you in the future!

Cathy Sanders said...

Wow yet another adventure for you... your sketches are great.

Get better soon.

Tracey Sabella said...

So sorry you are dealing with this nasty bug. Praying for you all to recover soon. What amazing sketches!! I created one sketch, and it took me all day. I'm so impressed that you have created 4 and they are each and every one so amazing!! I created a new sketch board in my Pinterest to pin them to! :-) ~ Blessings

Poor you! It must be horrible to be sick all at the same time and for so long :-( I wish you all to feel better very soon.

However, being sick makes your create great sketches! :-p I love them all and already feel inspired by them. Thanks for sharing!

What a great thing to do when you're under the weather! Hope you are ALL feeling loads better by morning. What a pain (literally!) My fave is your #2 with the chandelier, but I see loads of ideas in all four. Thanks for sharing!

Alison said...

Keren Tamir said...

Wow I can't believe you are all still sick, no wonder you were up the other day at 3 am.

Those sketches are fabulous wow. I love 1 and 2 the same for some vintage or shabby chi LOs and the 4th one for the grungy style.

jeanie g said...

Sooo Sorry you're feeling so YUK Helen. Love your sketches, All of them. Hope you get well really soon. Lots of hugs and healing sparkles from the UK.

Mona L. Pendleton said...

LOVE the sketches Helen!

Fi said...

Well the upside of being sick, it did give you time to create these. Hmmm which ones are my faves. Number 4 screams Helen I like the interesting style and you elements are funky. I also like 1 and 2 because they look nice and inspire me. Number 3 looks a little boring and doesn't make me want to scrap, but it may have more to do with colour rather than design, hope you know what I mean. Well like everyone I can only wish you back on to the road of recovery. So stay rugged up and get better soon.

Debbi Tehrani said...

Bummer being sick! No fun. These are all really wonderful sketches, Helen. I can't say which one I like best because I like them all and see wonderful possibilities in all of them. May need to give one a whirl! Hope you feel better soon!

yyam said...

These are lovely sketches Helen!

Hope you feel better soon. Hugs! :)

Eila Sandberg said...

My goodness Helen, I never realized you were THAT sick! I thought you had the flu and now I'm reading all of you guys were more or less wiped out. So so sorry to learn that all but too late! How are things with you now, bug over and done with?
Aha, NOW I get the sketch thing. You did create them! sounds really fun, they look really lovely! Is it OK for others to use them giving you the credit due? xoxo

Diana said...

Wow you are definitely way more talented with computers/technology than I am. I wouldn't have the first clue how to do something like this.
