Sketch Challenge: Rustic Harmony

Hi everyone,

It’s Pam here.

This month I get to scrap with the wonderful shabby chic collection, Rustic Harmony. This collection has a subtle colour palette of soft greys,  browns, pink and green together with distressed patterned papers.

This is the layout I came up with using Sandra’s sketch this month. This photo of my great grandparents has recently been discovered. Photos like these are rare in my family so they are definitely worth preserving and scrapping. _MG_1386-1Here is Sandra’s sketch…..

The circle element of the sketch is made by sponging distress ink through the centre part of the lacey doily 12 x 12 stencil.

_MG_1386-1ed_edited-1I used a soft lead pencil to shade around some of the elements for a faux 3d effect:

And some fussy cutting and tag detail:_MG_1393-4I’m really looking forward to seeing your interpretation of Sandra’s sketch.

Don’t forget you’ve got until 2nd of November, 2014 to add your creation to the gallery under the October Challenge post.
