Challenge 38 - Sketchy Sketch....

ooooooooh it's Friday the 13th!! Are you superstitious? I'm not so it's time for a sketch designed by Marie :)

Here is what Team B have designed with it:

The first thing my husband said when he saw this was that the title made no sense. I told him my titles are usually abstract riffs on the complex emotion I am trying to capture with my photos. You can get away with ALL KINDS of trash talk when you "make art".  This page came together quickly after we visited the Keith Haring Mural next to the FDR Drive- these photos have been on my "to do" list for YEARS. Lately I've really been interested in arrows- been adding them to the most random places.

I went for the softer side this time.  This is a photo of my youngest daughter giving the peace sign.  I decided to machine stitch around the edges and folded up the scalloped edges.  The title and frame are Dusty Attic chippies which I lightly inked around the edges.  The page itself was created using the Scraps of Darkness December kit.  TFL!

Cheryl C:
I couldn't contain myself, and had to use lots of layers.  But I wanted the circle from the sketch to be my main focus so I used it for the photo itself.  The cog has molding paste on it for texture, misted and inked over.  This is my son on the first day of preschool, bummed out that he had to go home.

I used only one photo and it's from last summer and our visit to "Kolm√•rden" which is a large zoo.  I tried to get a summery feeling in my layout, that's why I used the cloud-paper for background.  A little bit of gesso and mist in different colors is always useful... I added two journalingpapers instead of patterned paper. I like to draw stitches on my layouts!

Amazing!! We only have 4 this week as it's a busy time for some punky rebels - but these three have certainly inspired me to scrap!!! 

The deadline for all three challenges this month is January 31st 11.59 GMT!
