Almost all my scrapbook projects start with a sketch. It’s usually one I’ve come up with myself and jotted down in my ever-present notebook, but I also enjoy a good sketch challenge to get me started.
Lately I’ve been into Studio Calico’s Sunday Sketch, so I was thrilled when they asked me to make a layout for their latest challenge! I picked the card sketch and made this page about our last hike of 2012 (trip report to follow, soonish):
I also made this tree-huntin’ page (yes, we finally ditched our plastic tree for a real one this Christmas!) for a Sunday Sketch in December…
…and this wildlife highlight page back in November. My layouts don’t usually end up looking anything like the sketch, but hey, whatever gets me scrapping makes me happy.
If you want to join the challenge this week, go to Studio Calico, let one of these two sketches inspire you, make your masterpiece, upload said masterpiece to the Studio Calico gallery, and then post your link in the comment section on the Studio Calico blog post. Happy scrapping!!
