Good morning Lily Bee fans! This week we'll be focusing on Halloween themed projects with that day coming quickly down the pike. We've got another fun sketch challenge for you all today! I have created a sketch for you that has a photostrip theme with a base of layers that you can easily add to.
First up, here is Deanna Misner's take on the sketch. Deanna says 'I really loved working with this sketch because I love to use multiple photos. This one was perfect for a line-up of past Halloween costumes. It was so fun to look back and see how my little girl changed from year to year, and to reminisce about the memories associated with each one.'
I used both the Persnickety and Autumn Spice collections to set the tone for the color scheme I wanted. I love the oranges of Fall but also wanted to include some pink too since it was a predominant color in 2 of the 3 pictures.
'The Picky paper from Persnickety was the PERfect solution for that. I also cut out the pennant from one of the Persnickety index journaling cards to add a little flag at the bottom of the page. And for a homespun look, I added a little faux-stitching around the edges of my main sheet of paper'
And here is my take on the sketch. I altered it just a bit, adding a few more layers and changing the placement of the lower elements to the left side.
Lily Bee Supplies:Persnickety Collection(Patterned Paper, Stamps), Autumn Spice (Patterned Papers, ABC Cardstock Stickers, stamps, Cardstock Stickers, Index journal cards) Christmas Cheer (patterned Paper) Memorandum (Patterned Paper), Buttercup Collection (patterned Paper)
You can see below that I stamped the polaroid stamp from the Persnickety collection 5 times and then heat embossed it with some colored embossing powders.
And I need to just make the statement that the quality of the Lily Bee stamps is absolutely outstanding. I don't think I've ever had such crisp images. The Autumn Spice stamps may be my current favorite for words.
