Welcome!! Glad you hopped your way over here.
Some of you may have seen my article in Scrapbook News and Review about the use of sketches where I featured a sketch by Allison and some of the many ways you can interpret sketches. (If not, check out this link if you have time). This hop, in essence, shows you even MORE ways. We have all used the same sketch to showcase 14 different interpretations of that same point of inspiration. Amazing, isn't it, how each is so different?!
Here is the sketch and the inspiration that all 14 of us used;
I didn't stray too far from the sketch. I usually don't unless my pictures run the opposite direction. Instead of using stars I used the Tim Holtz cogwheel die to make my own monster truck tires. I also used a larger piece of background paper behind the pics and used two 4x6 pics on the right instead of the three specified. The PDF of this sketch with specific measurements (one of the many pluses of Allison's sketches) can be found on the Sketch Support blog, the blog you began at.
A little about me for those of you who have not already subjected yourself to my wit and art;
- When it comes to papercrafting I am...linear and geometric. I like to mix and match across lines and manufacturers. 12x12 single page layouts tend to be my "thing" though I do step outside that box.
- Where do you craft? My kids are still relatively young and like to be nearby so I have a "nook" in the playroom. There is a very clear and distinct line that the kids are not to cross unless invited! My desk sits under two bright windows so I have lots of natural light and a great view of those coming and going outside.
- When I am creating, these are the things I have to have around me... a self healing craft mat on the desk, my metal edged ruler and Xacto knife, my ATG (only because I've run out of my Kukuyo Dot n Roller), and paper galore!
- When I am not creating, you can find me... behind the camera lens, at one of my two money paying jobs as a Physical Therapist, behind the wheel of the MommyMobile chauferring children to swimming, dance and soceer, in the kitchen cooking or just hanging in the garden with my family.
- When it comes to sketches I... can go one of two ways. Either I am true to the last embellishment or I am very loose in my interpretation. My pictures really dictate what will happen. I crop and edit all my pictures ( if I haven't edited them, I'm not going to use them) and so anything that isn't 4x6 or 6x4 is a challenge for me.
And so, now that I've shared my work and a little about myself, I would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment to be entered into a drawing to win some Jillibean Soup journaling sprouts.
