Hey Everyone! Kinsey here with your Thursday sketch challenge...check it out!
"I was really excited when I received Kinsey’s sketch because I immediately had two ideas for cards. My first card, Just You & Me Pard’ner, is a more liberal interpretation of the sketch. To start my card, I chose to play liberally with the strip banner and used the cute chipboard fence from Sasparilla, as my starting point. The circle elements were easily filled with the star patterned chipboard circles and placed along the fence in good western fashion. (My son is turning 12 this week and my husband bought him tickets to see his beloved Phoenix Suns play. The adorable “looks like it’s just you and me pard’ner” sticker was a perfect sentiment because it will be just my son and husband going to this game, their first big father/son game with seats on the floor, a very special celebration indeed.) On my second card, You, I pulled out my Cakewalk box and began pouring through all the amazing and fun colors and patterns and created a more traditional interpretation of the sketch. I really am longing for spring here, with snow all last week, so I decided on a spring palette and butterflies to replace the circle elements."
I absolutely love how she made grass using the green patterned paper from Sidewalks and the sewing?! Don't even get me started!
For my take on the sketch, I switched things up a tiny bit by creating a collage of instagram photos from my iPhone for the large background photo. Since that piece was made of multiple small photos, I decided to put the title on the banner strip and then 'hinged' it so that it opens up to reveal hidden journaling about each photo...it's been a long time since I've done an interactive element on a layout and I forgot how much I love it!
It ended up being fairly simple but those are always my favorites...I love that this one is a month in review of all the 'little' stuff that went on. Brianna already told me it was her new favorite :)
So that's all we have for today! I hope you'll play along and I can't wait to see how you use the sketch so be sure to link us up in the comments!
