Challenge 41 - Sketchy Sketch!!

We have said goodbye to Camilla from sketch designing as she has now gone back to work!! Booo, but we will miss you :)

So, this months sketch comes from me and here it is:

and here is what Team A have for you.....enjoy!!!

I totally fell in love with Natalie's sketch, and tried to keep my layout pretty close to the original. The sketch screamed for misting and since I am totally in love with my white & silver mists at the moment, those had to make an appearance on my layout!

I love the simplicity and funkyness in Natalies sketch. I´m fond of sketches that leave a lot of undecorated space. Background paper made with gesso, mist, and yellow acrylic paint.

I love this sketch,I'm not so much of a sketchy person (most of the I do what comes in mind) a real challenge it was :)I have mist the background and placed the pic on white canvas and shimmer cardstock.The clouds are rub-ons.In fact i didn't do anything special,but I love the simple result!

As you can tell, I just decided to be really goofy with this sketch. This is my husband playing around with a fake mustache....I edited the photo...badly to make it look more like a mug shot (didn't need that much help really). I love the way the copper punchinella from Gauche Alchemy looks...It really pops off the page!

I went for the more spooky aspect of the sketch. I used fall colors (which is one of my favorite color schemes) and TONS of paint. Basically I started out with a nice pp background paper ruined it when I decided it needed some black paint and then went to town misting and painting it until I liked the look. I was worried there for a second.

This sketch was really hard to work with for me, although I really liked it. I tried to keep things small and centred but the page just evolved outwards. Anyway, Nat's skull led me to choose the skull badge featured at bottom left, and that badge showed me the way to the colours. It's a bit too tidy for my liking but I was trying so hard to keep small like the sketch that I thought if I did any thing else to it I'd ruin it!

I loved this sketch! It was so much fun to work with. The mustache on the sketch made me want to use some papers from my stash that had mustaches on them and a photo of my BFF's husband when he tried to grow a mustache while in Iraq. My BFF and I thought it was funny and I decided to commemorate it in a scrap page. I used mists in red and blue and made rosettes for the corners, then I added buttons.

I loved this weeks challenge!! I really love sketches that have a lot of white space as well :) I knew as soon as I saw Nat's sketch that I had the perfect photos to suit!! Hehehe these were taken on a camping trip where it was pouring with rain, so what else is there to do but rock the 'stauche and drink tequila! LOL

There was only one set of pictures I could use on this layout after seeing Nat's fab sketch.  My husband grew a moustache last November for the Movember mens charity.
