Hi! I’m here today to share with you another sketch and another layout in our
This is the second sketch for the month of June; you can see the first sketch for this month you can see it here.
Before we get to the sketch, I want to remind you of this month’s amazing prize. You might remember that Jillibean Soup is sponsoring this month's Stretch Your Sketches Challenge Series!
So in addition to winning a free copy of my eBook, Stretch Your Sketches
the winner will also receive this prize package
Jillibean Soup's latest collection Watermelon Gazpacho Soup. It is the perfect summer line filled with bright happy colors and lots of fun patterns. Be sure to visit the Jillibean Soup blog, Bean Talk for inspiration from their design team and more.
Now on to this month’s sketch! Here it is
I know I've said this before, so I hope you don't get tired of reading it, but there are so many different ways you can convert a 12 x 12 sketch to 8.5 x 11. Here is one version
From the original 12 x 12 sketch I created this layout
I used Jillibean Soup's Pasta Fagioli for this one. I really loved the bold colors of this line and they were perfect for these photos. About those photos, the journaling for this layout reads: I tried to snap a photo of the boys together at the Hazel’s Easter egg hunt. I took several and these are the best. Only because they make me laugh! Let's just say these two photos say quite a bit about these two boys' individual personalities. April 23, 2011
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 June 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. Prizes will only be shipped to U.S.addresses. In the event that an international participant wins, she'll receive an Ella gift certificate, and a new winner will be drawn for the physical prize.
Remember, there are 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.
