MDS Monday

MDS Monday have a sketch and technique challenge this week. They want us to use the freeform tool. It was definitely a challenge for me as I had never used it before so headed off to You Tube to watch a few videos.

Some considerable time later I had made a page I was reasonably happy with, except I don't like the writing along the top being upside down, but can't find a way to change it. Oh and now I seem to have lost the 13 off 2013!  I haven't got time to change it now so will have to have a look later.

Edited: to add the 13 to the picture!
Edited again after more advice - the writing's the right way up now! 


  1. Brilliant page and love the layout. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  2. Great page! I love the way you added the Tasteful Trim to look like waves. Such a cute idea! Darling beach page. Thanks so much for joining us this week for MDS Monday. (To make your "13" show up, I would suggest making your freeform line just a little longer:) It probably ran out of space.)

    1. Thanks Tami - off to try that now.

  3. Looks as though you were quite successful with your Youtube searches. Your layout looks wonderful, and I love the cheery bright colors. Very cute picture that you've chosen to celebrate in this pretty design. Well done! TFS & Happy Easter.

  4. Beautiful page with it's bold colors.... bright and sunny! I, too, had my text going the wrong way... (I believe it's how you created your freeform box in the beginning -- Check out Tami's video on her blog to have the text going the right way). Hope that helps... it did for me.

  5. Here is the link to her video:

  6. darling page, and I was going to tell you the same thing that Diane did. It all depends on how you start your line, bending it up or down or left or right, so if you check out that video you will see what we mean. I love the bright cherry colors and paper, they look great with your cute photo.

  7. Such a sweet page! Love your choice of bold colors on a beachy theme.

  8. What a fun page! I love the bright colors you used! Thanks for joining us at MDS Monday this week.
