Time To Get Sketchy


WOWZER!  Holy Pacholie.  Whoa!  These are all the things I thought when I saw this sketch challenge.  Honestly, it's pretty tough.   But, then I started thinking about what I have learned about sketches since participating in so many challenges.  You don't have to take a sketch so literally.  Think about what else you can see in them.  They are really just a creative "diving board."  So are you ready to "jump in" over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  I think it is going to be so interesting to see what people come up with.

Here's what I saw in that sketch:



This is a little wall hanging that I made with some old chipboard and a new PTI set.  As usual, I think it's so much cuter IRL.  I added some crystal stickles to the edges of the snow and the snowman, but you can't tell from the picture.

Here it is hanging in my kitchen:




One final close up of the details:

I agree, it was a difficult sketch. Had to flip it around in order for it to work for me. Yours is really cute. I love the ribbon with your papers. It looks like your Mojo is back!

I noticed you're from a small town in southern Ohio...I am to. I found your link at Moxie Fab World.
