For those of you who shop at our physical storefront, you should have gotten an email with information about this month's sketch contest.
We are starting a new contest at the store each month, and this month's challenge is to use this sketch.
We have extended the due-date to Saturday, March 21. The store closes at noon on Saturdays, so please have your layout to us by then. Please have your layout labeled, so we can return your layout to you after the contest is over.
How does it work?
Well, basically, you take this sketch, which we found at the Page Maps website. If you aren't familiar with Page Maps...head on over there! We carry their idea book, but she's constantly adding new sketches to her site every month!
Anyway, you start your layout similar to the sketch. Now, your layout does NOT have to be exactly like the layout, however we should be able to see some resemblance to the sketch. But, feel free to change it! Maybe you don't have the Artesian shaped paper, use a scallop circle, a regular circle, whatever! Maybe you don't have photos the "right size" for the layout. That's fine! Combine the two smaller photos into 1 larger photo. Add a photo instead of the flower embellishment. Don't want a flower? No problem! Use a star, another photo, a paisley, a flourish, whatever suits your fancy and your page!
After you are finished, please bring in your labeled layout, and we'll display all of our entrants in the entryway of the store in our cool white 12x12 frames. :) Customers that come in, will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite.
If your layout is chosen, you will earn a $10 gift card to the store!!
To the right is a sample layout that I did using the sketch as my basis point. As you can see, I have changed it up a bit. :) I rotated the sketch 90 degrees so that the KI Memories Sheer Delights is coming from the bottom. I changed the direction of the large photo to be portrait instead of landscape and I moved my smaller photos around a bit as well. I moved my large flower embellishment to the right side of the page and added a few other embellishments.
