Life.Paper.Scrapbook | Sketch..

Hello! Who is ready to play along with Life.Paper.Scrapbook's 2nd sketch challenge?  The team have put together some fantastic examples for you all to enjoy!  Check out the Design Team layouts >>here<<.

Here's the sketch...

And my sample..

"Sand Pies"

products used: cs - kaisercraft; pp - Bella BLVD, Jillibean Soup, Echo Park; alpha - Amy Tangerine American Crafts; other - Jo Sonja's paint, Jenni Bowlin paint dabber (yellow); tools - black pen (sharpie), star punch. photo credit: Cindy Devine.

This sketch is very minimalist.. even for me!  LOL!  But I have beefed it up by using layers of paint and pen where the circles are.  To create them, I used different sized sponge dabbers for circles and the small green ones were made with the eraser on the end of a pencil.  I didn't want to go too crazy with the paint but I still wanted the illusion of movement across the page.

After the paint was added and the photo positioned, I used a roll of washi tape to sketch out the circles..

This month Give A Girl... is giving one lucky person a stamp set of their choice. Give A Girl... is an Australian online store that sells fabulous clear stamp sets designed by the talented Kellie Winnell AND if your blog needs a freshen up with some beautiful graphics she does that too! (find out more about that here)..

So, here are the details for the sketch challenge:
- You can submit ANY kind of project - cards, layouts or anything you can use the sketch for
- You can use the sketch and colour challenge together just make sure you link it up to each so you have a chance to win in both.
- Sketch challenge #2 runs until 11.59pm 15 March. (Don't forget we are in Australia)
- The winner of the prize will be randomly drawn
- We will also feature three of the favourite layouts and the selected layouts will be asked to guest design for the next sketch challenge.
***AND there is a chance we may select your project for our March issue.
