Hey everyone! Roree here with today's Thursday Sketch Challenge.
Almost every time I need a little inspiration for a sketch, I head to Pinterest. With so many images, how could you not find inspiration there? I found this cute image while I was looking around:
My main inspiration was the window and with that in mind, I created this sketch:
I kept the general look of the window but offset the squares/rectangles for a bit of a staggered look.
I decided to create a card using the sketch:
I stayed pretty true to the sketch, adding just a couple of extra panels to fit the space.
I used the new Travel Girl collection, using the patterned paper and label stickers for the background of the card. I filled in the labels with alpha, word, and shape stickers, designer brads, and a tidbit.
I stayed with a gray, blue, red, and cream color scheme (love it!) and added a little machine stitching to finish.
Mandy played along with the sketch this week and created This amazing layout. Here is what she had to say about it:
"As you can see when I sat down to create with Roree's sketch, my layout kinda wandered off to become something totally different than planned. I really like that this sketch gives you that freedom to make it your own, which was a great way to start this layout using an outtake photo from our Jessie's senior pictures. I grouped products like the labels, the tabs, and added some layering while keeping the blocked look from the sketch in mind. My favorite piece right now from the Travel Girl collection is that "Not all those who wander are lost" sticker on the bottom of my layout. It's one of my favorite quotes and was perfect for this photo. To create this layout I used mostly product from the Travel Girl line along with products from the Daily Flash (alphas), 9to5 (label), and Midway (star strip) collections."
Isn't that just the wonderful thing about sketches? They really are just meant to give you a jump start until your creativity kicks in.
Well, I hope you enjoyed today's sketch and the samples Mandy and I created using it. If you get a chance to play along, don't forget to post your project in the OA Flickr group. We can't wait to see how you interpret it.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
