Hi,OA fans! It's Mandy Koeppen here with this Thursday's Sketch.
While looking around on Pinterest I found some great inspiration for my sketch this week. I pinned a few different pieces but noticed they all had a common shape and were taking me in the same direction... angles, triangles, and diagonals. I ended up basing this weeks sketch on this poster.
This sketch is a basic starting point that gives you the freedom to add bits & pieces wherever you choose. Even though this looks like a card or 8.5x11 sketch you could easily adjust it to use on a 12x12 page.
When I sat down with this sketch I decided to create an 8.5x11 page. I knew that I wanted to use a large photo at the top in that blank space so I eyeballed the angles and measurements in photoshop until I got what I wanted then printed the photo on an 8.5x11 paper. Even though I planned to have my layout look exactly like the sketch I went off course a bit but I really like how it turned out.
Danni Reid joined me for this week's sketch challenge, and she created this beautiful card.
I was really intrigued by the amazing Pinterest-inspiration piece that Mandy sent me for the sketch this week. I loved all the graphic lines and design and wanted to challenge myself with a card design using it. I pulled out my fabulous Travel Girl line and love the fun results. This card is going to be sent to my niece and I know she'll love it, it's a fun and hip design. Thanks for such a fun challenge, I can't wait to see what everyone will create with it.
I can't wait to see where this sketch takes you! Be sure to share your projects in the October Afternoon Flickr gallery.
