Hey everyone! Roree here with today's Thursday Sketch Challenge.
I created this sketch while playing around in Photoshop:
I started with a square layout and kept it fairly simple to leave it more open to interpretation.
Here is the card I created using the sketch:
I used patterned paper, Snap Caps, and stitching to replace the strips in the sketch and layered the Partly Cloudy chipboard clouds and a patterned paper sun in place of the photo squares in the sketch.
For the sentiment, I searched way back in my stash and found some great letter stickers from the Campfire collection, Dandelions "Story Book" alphas, and a puffy heart from from Apple Cider Pop Drops.
Mel Blackburn played along with my sketch this week, and here is the amazing layout she created and what she had to say about it:
“I’m so excited to be here today, contributing to Roree’s amazing sketch! I really enjoyed the versatility of the sketch. My initial thought was to figure out how to incorporate the strips of papers underneath the pictures. My idea was to use the Public Library border stickers, but I decided that I need to add a bit more bulk and dimension to my page. I therefore cut strips of pattern paper on an angle, letting the angle of the strips of paper really bring emphasis on the picture. Afterwards I added stitching for more dimension and proceeded to raise the edges of the paper. Of course I finished the design with brads and other small embellishments. To create this layout I used the following supplies: Public Library Collection, Egg Nog Pop Drops, Daily Flash Picture This Stamp Set, Daily Flash Photo Booth Chipboard.”
I hope you enjoyed today's sketch and the samples Mel 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!
