Happy Thursday everyone! It's Amy here today with this week's sketch challenge.
I was looking on Pinterest for some inspiration and came across this uber cool poster with a very basic yet bold design. I thought it would be super fun to interpret into a scrapbook sketch. I took a very literal route to making the sketch, leaving it up to tons of possibilities!
When I started thinking about this sketch, I thought of several versions I could make. Including a pie chart, a full citrus wedge, and even a much reduced-sized version of the massive circle and a very small design. In the end, I deceided to turn the sketch 45 degrees and use the title and journaling section as a frame for my photo.
We recently went ice skating, and I thought that the large round circle would serve perfectly as an "overhead" view of the rink. I stitched around the perimeter something like tracks in the ice from skating then used the large frame as the main space for all of my title work, embellishments and a tuck-away spot for my journaling.
For my page I mixed pieces from Silent Night, Eggnog and even a few bits an pieces from the exclusive Very Merry December 2013 kit. All the pieces work together so seemlessly and yet all have a distinctive flavor and flair.
That's going to do it for me today! Make sure to share anything you create with this sketch with us via the October Afternoon Flickr gallery- we'd love to see your work!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic week! ~Amy
