November 2010 Sketch Challenge
by Patter Cross (Nov 1, 2010)
Sketches that can be used for anything are my absolute favorite. So for today’s sketch challenge, I have created a sketch that can be used for a layout of any size, a card, altered item, tag, etc. I asked some design team friends to play along with the sketch, and you will see how versatile this sketch can be. We have layouts, cards, and a mini book to share with you today using this sketch. Here is your sketch:
I love the richness of Sandee’s card and how she used a large flower in the bottom corner and then used the flourish for more embellishment. You can see the sketch so clearly, yet she “tweaked” it as she needed to for this stunning card. I love every detail here.
Sabrina also created a card and also used a pearl flourish as Sandee did; however, she used three small flowers and placed most of the flourish on the left- instead of the right-hand side. It’s so fun to see the subtle yet striking differences between the two cards. I love how Sabrina used the lace across the bottom of her card too.
Angie created a gorgeous wedding layout. I love how she used one of the spaces from the sketch for her three photos. Instead of using three embellishments, she used a journaling tag with scripture. It’s just a wonderful and gorgeous take on the sketch.
Chrissy Dickinson—Mini Book
Chrissy decided to create an amazing mini book with the sketch. You can see the sketch on every single page. Look how she turned it and changed it to work for each of her pages. Awesome work!
For my non-photo layout, I used three strips of paper just as the sketch shows. For the three embellishments in the corner, I used buttons. I then added other embellishments and a journaling tag for the rest of my page.
I hope you will have fun with this sketch. Be sure to post your layouts in the gallery when you are done. We would love to see how it turns out!
