I love a good sketch. Today I’m sharing how I took one sketch and interpreted it in two ways. I created a layout and a card based on the same sketch.
Sketches often provide me with a starting point. It can be intimidating looking at a blank piece of card stock or patterned paper. The great thing about sketches is that they can be interpreted in so many different ways. There are even times when my final project looks nothing like the sketch that inspired me. But that’s ok, their purpose is to get you started – where you end up is up to you!
On last weeks virtual crop I sent out this sketch to everyone who participated and challenged them to create something with it. It was fun to see how different everyone’s project turned out to be.
My first project was pretty much a direct interpretation of the sketch. I didn’t stray too far but I love how it turned out. This was also one of the projects for my current Scrap Your Stash class. Everything I used is from a kit that I created using supplies from my stash.
The striped dsp was the inspiration for this weeks kit. I LOVE this patterned paper (now retired). The only thing that is current on this layout is the border die that I used to cut the pretty black border. That is from the Ornate Borders dies (152724). It feels so good to be reminded of what I have in my stash and use some of it up.
For the second project, I decided to create a card, also using supplies from my scrap your stash kit. It’s such a simple card but I love how it turned out! The greeting is from the Timeless Tulips stamp set (151534) and the tulips were punched from the back of the green patterned paper using the tulip builder punch (151295). I loved the way this card turned out so much that I made 6 of them!
