081821 August CKC Challenge #2 - Sketch It Up!


Master Forger of Ceremonies Lisa:


We all love a good sketch and I found a cracker for us today. This is a BasicGrey (insert longing sigh here) sketch from way back in 2012 (see if at their blog here ). It's a double spread but feel free to use it complete or just one of the pages - it features some chevrons which reminded me of the photo corners in the HS sticker book from the kit and I really think it can be reinterpreted to reflect today's scrappy style if that's the way you want to go!


One, two, three... sketch!

  I love a good sketch. My tendency is usually to tweak, flip, flop or generally change it up before I even start my page. After that it's a free for all! I wanted a single page layout so first I squeezed it in PSE & floated it on a digital mixed media background.

I didn't do the mixed media after all but otherwise kept quite a bit to this design.

A little detail was fringing the banners cut from the 2017 Crate Paper Here + There/Traveler paper. I couldn't believe how I found the perfect phrases in my Heidi Swapp pack - even down to the colors being exactly right. When does that ever happen?!?

I know you will find inspiration from this sketch. Feel free to use my version if it helps! And be sure to come back for the last few features this month:

  • 12th & 18th August: Challenges #1 & #2 - to inspire you to get creating from your own kit 
  • 24th August: Follower Showcase - who has caught our eye this month 
  • 31st August: Killing Kits - an idea or two for using up the bits & pieces left in your kit box
