Hi OA fans! It's Amy here today with your Thursday Sketch Challenge.
I've been seeing lots of pages with little banners peeking out from photos lately. Big banners, little banners, all kinds of banners. So I thought today, I'd create a sketch based on a similar idea.
For my page, I decided to use OA's 9 to 5 collection for a photo of my son making a goal at soccer, and his pure joy of the game. For my little banners at the bottom of the page, i used alternating strips of paper, as stripes leading up to my photo. A little bit of a spin from the banner-type look from the sketch.
The black chevron paper, was the perfect addition to not only add contrast to the blue, but it also really give the feel of "soccer" to my page. I also used lots of pieces from my "Little Flyers" pack throughout my page, too. I love how there are pieces for creating adorable little flags, but also additional small stickers that you can use on the flags, or on other places in your projects.
I asked Wilna to join me in creating a project based on my sketch, and this is what she came up with.
I just LOVE her take. It's so light and airy. I can almost feel those little banners flowing in the breeze. Can't you?!
This is what Wilna had to say about her project and the sketch:
"I loved Amy's sketch and the little banners here and there worked perfect with my birthday theme!"
So what do you think? You up for giving our sketch a go this week? If so we'd love to see your beautiful work! Simply upload your creation to the October Afternoon Flickr pool for all of us to enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a super day!
