Well, now – over @ The Studio Challenges - Anna chose to make this month’s sketch based on my Heroes challenge layout. You remember this right?
She did an excellent job turning it into a sketch – keeping very true to the elements and their placement. Now it was my turn again.
In order to work with a favorite recent photo of mine, I needed to switch the sketch up a bit. So I flipped it to its mirror image. The center part of the layout is essentially the same, except flow is now downward from top left, instead of upward from bottom left.
Instead of using two photos, I used one photo which I printed on a white matte project life card to match it up with the journal card from Persnickety Prints. Having changed the relative size of the two rectangles, it seemed proper also to move the title to the larger space.
It was the picture’s background of all the store merchandise that prompted me to bring many bits of color and shine onto the page through the clustered and scattered embellishments.
I loved the creative mental challenge of having to look at something familiar in a new way. That is really the beauty of sketches, that they can be transformed or reinterpreted time after time.
The base sheet is the last full sheet from last month’s counterfeit kit. The embellishments were from gathered from there, my Project Life desktop and my bits and bobs box. The steel ball straight pins were from my Aunt’s button box.
That's it from here today.
