Hi Lily Bee fans! Today is the first day in our brand new blog schedule! Each day of the week will bring you inspiring projects to gain inspiration as well as two challenges each week! Participation in these challenges will enter you into two monthly prize pools for awesome Lily Bee products! All you have to do is upload your challenge into our Lily Bee Flickr pool fournd here (link also found on the right) to be considered for that month. Sketch Challenges and General Challenges are both eligible for prizes! We can't wait to see what you come up with!
Hola Lily Bee friends, from sunny Arizona. It’s Ursula here today to bring you a fun and inspiring sketch.
Personally, I find I prefer as sketch that is relatively simple and allows me to build outward. I tend to feel a little boxed in if there are lots and lots of details included in a sketch. Somehow, I simply ‘have’ to follow the rules which means everything in the sketch has to also be on my layout.
Since I don’t work well that way, I decided to create a fairly simple sketch to which lots of details could be added if the user so desires.
Take a look, take the challenge and show us how you’d interpret this sketch. As you can see, there is lots of room to breath on this page design. However, feel free to fill it up if that is what will make your heart sing.
To give you a little jump start on the ideas, take a look at how I interpreted the sketch.
Lily Bee Supplies used:
Memorandum: Tiny Tablet, 12x12 Paper
Buttercup: Mixed Cardstock Stickers, Handmade Bag of Bits, Tiny Tablet, ABC Stickers
Double Dutch: Index Journal cards, 12x12 paper Celery
Victoria Park: 6x6 Tiny Tablet, 12x12 paper Grand Theater
Handmade: Mixed Cardstock Stickers
Christmas Cheer: 12x12 Patterned Paper
Julia Stainton also joined me with her multi-photo take on the sketch. I love how she used 2 photo strips to mimic the shape of the photo placed on the sketch but still making it her own. She’s also turned the sketch and dropped the border strips down into the body of her project.
