Summer Sketch-athon: Sketch #1

Are you ready? Let's bring in summer with a bang!

Our first sketch from the lovely Valerie Salmon is



Here is my interpretation below - my layout is based on the sketch turned 90 degrees. The versatility of sketches astounds me as you can rotate it, use a mirror image of it or even select a portion of the sketch!

I chose a subtle tone on tone look for my layout. The flower accents were inspired by the groovy flowers on my daughter's helmet. I layered several pattern paper circles from the same line of BasicGrey papers.


Supplies:  Basic Grey (pattern paper, die cut stickers, chipboard accents, alphas); EK Success (circle punch, flower punch); Versamagic (chalk ink); KI Memories (puffy butterflies) 

When you have created your sketch interpretation, please link me up in the comments. I'll put your name in the draw for Sketch #1. The draw will be made July 11, 2011 at 12 midnight MST. One entry per person please; however if you wish to create several interpretations, I would love to see those too!

Let's get scrapping!!!

loved the sketch. Here is my take on it with a few photos of my family taste testing some mid way food at the Calgary Stampede a few years back.
