Saturday Sketch Challenge – April sketch #4

April 24, 2010

Here’s this week’s sketch – it’s the last one for April – so don’t forget to scrap a layout to be in the draw to win a fun prize!!

Here’s what Christine had to say about her layout, “I used the Gypsy Sister’s paper collection and rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the right.  I added in an extra little photo and some journaling up the top right”.

“Rock Star” by Christine Rumley – Gypsy Sister’s Paper Collection, Die-cut Elements, Acrylic Stamps and Cream Alpha Stickers.

And a simple layout from Nancy,

“I started out by inking all the edges of my background paper with lilac ink. I then attached rectangle pieces of patterned paper in a “criss-cross” pattern to draw the eye to the center of the page. A big flower that I hand-cut from paper makes a nice statement in the top left corner of the page. I added the lace along the bottom of the photo for a bit of pretty texture and the snipped & curled paper along the right edge of the photo give the eyes a good stopping point and draws the focus back to the photo. The flower buttons finish off the page with a bit of “glam” .”

Materials used: Utopia collection papers- Oasis (P502- front), Idyllic (P503- front), Tranquil (P504- front & back), Paradise (P505- back), Euphoria (P506- front), Bliss (P507); Die Cuts (DC316); Rub-Ons (RB809,RB812); Ink (Lilac- IP715). Other: sewing machine, thread, lace trim, flower & gem buttons.

And another layout from Sam,

And now for our digital template/sketch – this week from Kathleen!

Just click on the sketch to download your FREE template!! This template even includes a freebie flower brush from the Rustic Charm kit!

And her layout:

“For those looking for a little more info on the recoloring the Rustic Charm papers, all I did was use the Hue slider to a value of 146 and then I reduced the saturation depending on my personal taste. That’s it! :)”

Materials: Rustic Charm mega kit

And here’s Chrissy’s take on it,

“I used various kits for it, including little miss and amour. I also used the stitching, the flourish and the journalling brush sets”.

Materials: Little Miss basic kit, Amour mega kit.

And Carole’s:

Materials: Friday Night Jive mega kit

And Donna’s:

“I totally flipped and twisted the layout, so I can accommodate the orientation of my photos. I used blending mode (Color dodge) to achieve the background look, and the brushes (stars and word “adorable”) to create embellishment, picked colors from the papers and 25px stroke to make it stand out”.

Materials: Little Man basic kit.

And Kerry’n’s layout:

“I have used the Grunge kit. I have used the grungy boys kit for this birthday themed layout. Altering the photos to chocolate black and whites made it easy to match all of the papers and elements. I love how the template allows for multiple photos and scatters them for a fun effect”.

Materials: Grunge Mega kit
