Hi Chrissy’s Crafty Challengers,
Karen and Roxanne from the Merly Impressions Design Team have some inspiration for this weeks sketch challenge! We have both had a go at this challenge and here is what we have created:
Karen – I have chosen this sketch from the two Chrissy posted and I have used the Native Breeze collection for this page.
I was amazed how different this page looked to the others I made with this range, just goes to show how versatile Native Breeze is.
As you can see I swapped out the hearts for stars and cut double the amount so that I could fold the top ones to give dimension.
I also swapped out the two smaller photos for some journaling, not my handwriting but written with my Silhouette – I wish my handwriting was that neat.
I am really excited to see your versions of this sketch – remember you can flip it, make elements larger or smaller – make your photo larger or smaller (as I have) and add or remove elements. Just go for it and make it your own x
Roxanne- I decided to go with the sketch that has the large heart, see below. I choose this one because I have many “love” photo’s of me and my fiancé.
Many years ago I bought a lot of the MINT WISHES Collection by Kaisercraft and carted it all the way to Germany with me. So I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to use it! I also found this snow photo that I absolutely adore and thought it suited perfectly. I have titled this layout “Snow Love”.
I had been saving this stunning Uniquely Creative laser cut heart for the perfect project, which just happened to be this one! I have sprayed it with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – WHITE 50ML to make it sparkle.I have used a large lace in the middle of my punched strip with some ribbon as the central strip from the sketch.
Amongst my stash I found many Die Cut leave and branch pieces, as well as this beautiful circle! I clustered these die cut pieces with the collectables in a similar place to on the sketch.
I have also includes some white felt snowflakes and some blue-gray painted wooden snowflakes into my clusters for extra dimension.
Finally, I have embellished with my favourite- RHINESTONES – SILVER.
We hope we have inspired you to have a go at this wonderful challenge ! As Karen said, you can stick strictly to a sketch or you can change it up as much as you like. We saw many gorgeous designs entered into last weeks challenge and hope to see just as many, if not more this week!
Stay home, stay safe and crafts lots!
