Here is this week's sketch, with my take on it.
I really loved working with this sketch, but for me the picture was the problem. Initially I printed the photo in colour (here is what the original photo looked like).
So as you can see that blue sky is awesome for a day at the beach, but for scrapbooking and matching paper to that photo can be a bit of a nightmare. In the end I opted to print the picture in black and white. Along with the black and white picture I really wanted to use the BoBunny, ETCETERA collection I bought in December and have not had a chance to use yet. All the paper and embellishments are from the same range. Here are some close-up pictures.
Instead of just sanding the papers, I inked them with Tim Holtz black ink and then did a bit of distressing to give it that mixture between the black and the brown and thereby emphasizing the black and white picture.
Along with the awesome sketch there is of course also some awesome prizes to be won. Le Shabby Cafe is our sponsor this month for both sketch #4 and challenge #4.
