Virtual Crop Sketch – 4th April


Karen here.  I hope you are all keeping safe and well and Roxanne and I are bringing you something a little different today.  We have each designed a sketch and then used each other’s sketch to produce a page.


I took inspiration for my sketch from this page, that I made last year.



Hi everyone, I am hoping you are all staying safe and healthy- Roxanne here to show you what I created using Karens lovely sketch.

April 4th Sketch Challenge 2020 RS Picture1

I used the MORNING DEW collection by Kasiercraft for this challenge. I choose the stones (BREATHE – MORNING DEW COLLECTION) as the background because our dog, Pluto, loves to pick up stones and carry them around. I then couldn’t resist using the spotted page (INHALE – MORNING DEW COLLECTION) to compliment Pluto spots! When comparing my layout to Karen’s sketch I have added an extra border, moved the horizontal strip from the top to the bottom and I have still used three sets of flowers but the larger one is not clustered.

To create these flowers, I have used the set of stamps from the Magenta Collection that we received at the Merly Impressions Retreat 2019. April 4th Sketch Challenge 2020 RS Picture3

Hi Roxanne here,

Below is a layout I created last year, so took inspiration from it to produce my sketch.


Below is the sketch that I came up with, it is somewhat simplified compare to the original layout but I think this makes it easier to move around.


I then provided this sketch to Karen and she has created a beautiful layout using this sketch. I hope to see many other gorgeous layouts using this sketch over the next two weeks!

Karen here – I have used this sketch and Ladylike to make my page.  I turned her sketch a quarter turn to the left and used portrait photos rather than landscape ones.

As we said last week – you can interpret the sketch any way you wish.

Have fun!!!!!
