Scrap Affairs Sketch Challenge issue 52

posted in: Layouts, Techniques | 0

What an honour to be asked by our local scrapbooking magazine to create a layout for their sketch challenge in their latest issue here in South Africa.
I love working with sketches, and I love creating sketches for layouts. Its a quick starting point for a lot of people and a guide to get some creative time into our busy schedules.
Sketches can come from anywhere and I have even been inspired by the local Mugg & Bean counters to draw a quick sketch.

This was the layout I created using my sketch for the challenge.

I absolutely loved how it turned out – and as many other layouts this must be one of my most favourite layouts ever! The colours, the imperfect inky goodness and the plain artistic input offers a good mix texture and pattern.

I used some scrap experimental papers with paint on them and cut freehand triangles to use on my layout.
The silver splats is irRESISTible spray from Imagine crafts – enamel goodness in a spray bottle – pure perfection!

Random strips of more self created papers with some sewing on top and scattered diamante.
