Mini Challenge: Sketch Inspiration
One of my guilty tv pleasures is Top Chef. I love watching all of these talented chefs create these amazing meals out of their own heads! Someday I would love to learn how to do that. I enjoy cooking, but I pretty much need a recipe to get me started. I add my own touches and change things to fit my families preferences, but it all starts with a recipe for me. (Check out my famous chocolate cookies, would you?)
I am the same way with scrapbooking. If I can get some uninterrupted time and sit down for a while, I certainly can come up with my own scrappy creations. Unfortunately, I don't always have that kind of time (or lack of interruptions with a husband, 2 kids, 3 cats and a dog!) I always appreciate a little big of good old fashioned inspiration. Sometimes it comes from a project on a blog or a gallery or magazine. A lot of times it comes from a sketch. Those are my go to recipes. I have developed "crushes" on a few sketchy artists who really fit my style and offer sketches that I can really put my personal touch on! One of my crushes in Allison Davis from Sketch Support. There has been quite a buzz on 2 peas about how wonderful her sketch books are. You can check out her wonderful sketches for yourself now on her new site Sketch Support!
I am excited to use one of her great sketches for our mini challenge today! I think this sketch is fantastic because of the opportunity to get very creative with embellishements.
Mini Challenge: Use this sketch as your inspiration to create a layout (one or two pages) or even a card! Make it your own by making it fit you and your style! Then post a link showing us what you have created either on our blog or on our facebook page!
And before you all ask...here are some of my other "crushes" for your enjoyment!
