Sketch Challenge 12 is here! The sketch I have I created for you today uses two 4×4″ photos. These “Instagram” size photos are so popular right now, so I decided to incorporate that size into my sketch for you.
My layout was created using the new Paper Bakery September Scrapbook Kit. It is full of amazing products from such companies as Glitz Design, Bella Blvd and My Mind’s Eye. I stuck pretty close to the sketch using 4×4″ photos. I even layered the papers in a similar manner and mimicked the chevron border using the cut file that is part of this month’s kit.
Some other fun details about my layout are the use of two Paper Bakery exclusive stamps: Hand Drawn Star Background (which is part of the August Mixed Media Kit) and Paint Splatter Stamp Set (which is an exclusive stamp set that will be offered to new members in September. I stamped them with black and gray ink to create a fun distressed look on my background paper. I also had fun creating my title using cardstock from the Cardstock Add-On and a sticker from the Jillibean Soup Smile Wise Words Sticker. I placed that sticker on some of the gray cardstock and trimmed around it to help it stand out better against the background.
Lastly, I used one of the sweet little vellum bags that came with my kit to help keep the embellishments together. I love to add these to my projects whenever I can. Who wants to throw away something so cool?! I even used the washi tape that was holding the bags closed. (It’s the orange chevron tape!)
Here are the details you need to know to play along with us using the sketch challenge:
1.) We will have a new Sketch Challenge every two weeks. Play along for your chance to win a $10 coupon to the Paper Bakery Shop.
2.) Make a layout or project inspired by the sketch. Be creative and have fun! We would love to see what you create using a Paper Bakery kit however, using a kit is not required for you to play along.
3.) Take a picture and link it up on the sidebar of the Paper Bakery blog using the INLINKZ widget by the due date September 21.
I hope you are inspired by this sketch and will play along with us! I am looking forward to seeing what you create and share!!!
