Here at Scrapstorian we love sketches!
This month myself, Shar and Rosa all participated in the Let’s Get Sketchy Challenge, check out this awesome multi-photos sketch:
First up is Shar’s adorable take …
Since our last retreat Shar committed to using up supplies she has had in her scrap cave for quite some time before she would allow herself the privilege of purchasing new stuff … and well there is a ton of awesome NEW stuff out there so she is, as she put it, “smashing my stash as hard as I can cause I really really want to do some serious scrap-shopping and kit ordering!“ To help her stash smashing along, she used a little love from Simple Stories, Documented – circa 2012 WOW!
This layout is for her son’s Age 5-6 album. The “maturity feel” of the bold patterns & serious colors in the Documented needed to be balanced – so she used out a cute leaf character from her mist favourite beloved “Create a Critter” Cricut Cartridge to give the page a little kid fun loving feeling but keeping the fall/autumn theme too. This replicated the sentiment of the Uncle-Nephew time in the pictures – after all helping Uncle with the leaves was serious big-boy business!
Now here is Rosa’s travel inspired take sketch …
Rosa created this in her 5×8 Travelers Notebook using the Simple Stories, Simple Vintage Traveler collection papers. She added some Recollections wood veneer embellishments from her stash, Recollections alphas also from her stash, and the jute is from a kit she received from The Wild Hare Kits back in May.
For her final touches she added a date stamp and some splatters of the Shimmerz Paints, Blingz in Gold-n-Roses and Inklingz in Mochachino. In future, she may add some journaling to the left side too! This layout is part of her Scotland 2018 adventure and we cannot wait to see a full album flip through when she has it complete – wow!
Finally my (Brande’s) take on the sketch …
I have been chomping at the bit to keep digging into the new Vicki Boutin, Wildflower and Honey collection and these photos were a perfect opportunity. I love how bright the collection is and that it contrasts in so well with the cold, foggy background of these Gros Morne mountain top pictures in Newfoundland!
I flipped the sketch on its side to work with the landscape orientation of the photos but otherwise stuck really close to the design! The anchor behind the photos is a combo of pattern paper and the amazing washi tapes in this collection. I finished it off with some white acrylic paint (with a splash of water mixed in) splatters to add a little mixed media touch. I love how it turned out!
Looking forward to the November Let’s Get Sketchy sketch already!
