THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO PLAYED ALONG WITH OUR JULY CHALLENGE.
Hello CE friends! It’s a new month and time for a new challenge. This month we are one of the sponsors at Sketchabilities. WE are also guest designers there as well. We used Karan’s sketch this month in addition to the regular pic and twist challenge. It is not required but if you do decide to use the sketch be sure to link up your layout at Sketchabilities as well for 2 chances to win a gift voucher to our store. The challenge this month is be inspired by one element of the picture below and for the twist use something made of wood on your layout.
Hi everyone! Here’s my take on the July challenge with the Sketchabilities sketch! I started my mind with this nature image and I used the color combo green, blue, red and gray. I supposed the red flowers were poppies so I used some on my agencement too! I’ve cut the chicken wire border in many pieces to add around. I’ve paint it with white gesso first and I’ve coloured it with Brushos powders and water. This is a new product that I bought and it’s fantastic! For the twist I used the hot hexagon wood veneers from the store and left them natural.
What a great sketch! I followed the Sketchibilities sketch fairly closely and just tailored it to work with my photo. My inspiration from the photo was the vintage dark appearance and the fence. For the twist I used wood for the fence and two small Creative Embellishment laser cut wood school buses that I left their natural color. These come is a set of 3 and they are just so cute! I also used a larger chipboard school bus from the set of two. First I inked it and then covered with crackle accents to give it a really vintage appearance.
Hi everyone! Wow this month was special….a Sketchabilities sketch to play along with the inspiration photo. I have always adored their sketches! For my layout I thought the photo looked rather old so I went with a heritage layout. For the twist I added in some wood buttons. I used a couple of flourish chippys, a Mini Square Frame chippy and I adore the Word sets for title pieces! I hope you all come play along this month with us!
Hi scrap friends ! Love, love, love this sketch of Sketchabilities !! My inspiration from the picture was the blue and red colors, and the flowers. For the twist I used Creative Embellishment Fall Leaves wood that I left their natural color. To add texture to my layout, I’ve cut the Chicken Wire Panel in many pieces. I stamped the Distressed Crackle Stamp with black ink on the butterflies to add some contrast. I hope you are all inspired to join in this really fun challenge!!!
Hi again! Loved this month’s inspiration and sketch. I was inspired by the blue sky and all the flowers and it went so well with this photo of my grandaughter, who is just graduating from High School. Loved the sketch! I’ve used the flourish 10 chippies which I cut in two. Then I also used the Stars in my Universe Frame. Then I also added the Lamp Post Set. For the twist of adding wood I added a heart. I treated the chipboard with paint and then added some glitter to the gold stars.
Hi Guys, this is my take on the July Challenge. Creating my first ever layout, I was a little nervous , but always wanting to try new things I jumped right in and am pretty happy with the results! First using the Sketchabilities Sketch 142 as my starting point. I grabbed some papers in my stash from the Wallflower Collection by Tim Holtz. I gave the background a quick and messy whitewash with gesso, using an old credit card. Then layered up strips of paper to create a background for my Windmill photo, that I found on Pinterest. I also used a few different washi tapes, film strips, Distressed Chicken Wire Border, mesh gauze, a black wooden button (for the twist), metal propeller, burlap tag, and the word Explore from the Adventure Word Set. After adhering everything down, I sprinkled some sprays, Black Magic, White Blanco, Sterling Silver, and Bubblegum Pink. I hope you all enjoy this layout and please play along in the July Challenge found right here on the CE Blog, to win a $50 gift voucher! Happy Crafting!
I was inspired by the red flowers so I decided to make red and flowers a large part of my tag. I fussy cut a ton of flowers from G45 French Country and layered. I just love the hot air balloon chippies and tried my hand at paper piecing over the top to give a different look. I finished it off by heavily inking between the etched lines and sealing over the top with glossy accents. For the wooden element, I used part of a leaf at the top of the tag inked green to give a pop of a color to tie with the leaves from the flowers.
Hi all!! So excited to be playing with Sketchabilities sketch this month!! I used the CE Pussy Willow chippy cut it apart and colored it green with a little inker, Then went over it again using some shimmerz in Green Olive. Tipped the edges with a white little inker. Also used my fave CE stamp Distressed Screen stamp. Other items used Flying Unicorn July KOM. Lots of fun!! Hope to see you guys playing along with us!!
