This week's sketch comes from Maggie Holmes' 34th Street Gallery - and is based on her card titled "Why Hello There."
We were excited to see how April (lifeinprint) interpreted the sketch to make a layout, and it looks fabulous!
Here is what April had to say about using the sketch:
When I saw this sketch I knew this one would be perfect for these pictures of my oldest daughter. I like how the banners and sentiment provided a base for the pictures to rest on. I added a few more banners for depth and then tucked the pictures under a banner and used diecuts to create the title, turning them all slightly, so they would sit as silly as she is in the pictures. I also really liked Maggie's doodle around the edge of the card and her arrows, but instead of using just a pen since this is a bigger scale I decided to cut one of the patter papers from the kit into to strips and then I mitered the edges together, to give it a little extra detail, then sewed around the whole thing and did a zig zag stitch on all the mitered corners. I added the chevron pieces that I cut from another sheet of the pattern paper to follow along with her arrows that she had hand drawn. Instead of doing the three stars like the sketch I decided to change it up a bit and use some of the brads, sequins and rhinestone stars that came in the kit to make three small clusters instead.
Supplies: Sock Hop, Leather Jacket & Penny Loafers kits
What a great take on twisting a sketch to fit your needs...this looks awesome April!!
