Welcome to the Gossamer Blue July Sketch Challenge!
This month we asked subscriber Michelle Wedertz to join us!
Michelle says: When working on my layout, I kept to the basic design of the sketch making a few modifications as I went. I chose to move both pictures together because it helped tell my story about my son jumping into my shot. I made the circles more of minor detail as opposed to a main feature by using enamel dots, chipboard buttons, and punching small circles from the vellum.
And here is design team member Kasia Przybyt’s take on the sketch:
Kasia says:I really like working with sketches! With them my work is super quick and I don’t have to think too much about composition, I just have to focus on colors and patterns. I usually work with 1 photo layouts so when I saw this one I smiled, I like challenges 🙂
Another challenge I added for myself was using a semi dark background (I’m white card stock kind of gal). All in all I’m really happy how it worked out. This was a great sketch and real fun to work with 🙂
Okay. It’s YOUR TURN!
