Hello friends! Melanie here today to bring you a fun and simple sketch challenge. As you can see my sketch offers a lot of white space but also a lot of possibilities. I think this is one of the reason we love working with a sketch, the base is already created for us, then it is up to us to play with pretty papers and embellishments to come up with something fabulous.
The Public Library collection was ideal for this picture of my middle daughter jumping on our bed. I really wanted to take a fun approach to the house rule concept, that is why I labeled my layout 206 as we don’t really have that many rules in our house, it was just a comical way to document this activity.
The chipboard element was ideal for this picture as it beautifully complements the colors in the photo. I really took a simple approach using white letters and minimal amount of embellishments. I added some gold accents with stitching and thread, as one can never go wrong with gold accents.
I would love to see your take on this challenge! Upload your layout to the October Afternoon Flickr gallery, post it on our Facebook page, or connect with us on Instagram via #octoberafternoon. Happy crafting!!!
