Hi Everyone! I have some really exciting news to share wih you. Starting today I will be hosting an all-new
here on The Daily Trumpet. Visit the blog every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month from now through September to see a brand new sketch and layouts created by me from the sketch. Along the way I'll share some of my favorite tips and tricks for getting the most from your sketches. Plus, each week I've invited one of the Ella Friends to stretch the sketch and create another layout based on that same sketch so you'll get double the inspiration! Each month you can join in the fun by making your own layouts based on the sketches presented to be eligible for some great prizes.
This month's prize is a free copy of my eBook, Stretch Your Sketches
plus a $10 Gift Certificate to Ella's eBook shop
Are you ready for the first sketch? Here it is
and here is an 8.5 x 11 version
From the original 12 x 12 version of the sketch I made this layout
To stretch the sketch I used two 5 x 3.5 photos in place of the single 5 x 7 photo
and created this layout
Want to join in the fun? Here's how to play: First, create your layout based on the sketch. Next, post it to your blog or any online album and be sure to mention where you got the sketch in your post or caption. Third, come back to this post and share the link to your layout. All entries must be posted by April 30, 2011, 11:59 pm PST. The winner of each month will be chosen at random and will be announced here on The Daily Trumpet.
Remember, there will be two sketches posted each month. If you create two layouts, one from each sketch, you will have two entries which will double your chances of winning!
I hope you all will participate with me and make a layout based on this sketch. If you are playing along here is a button for you to post on your blog.
I can’t wait to see your interpretations!
