3-in-1 May Sketchy Challenge by Kerry Engel
This month’s Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Sketchy Challenge is bubbling with fun.
There are so many ways to interpret this design. My daughter was home from University one weekend studying economics and finance. Her weekend was basically summed up by the fun emojis in Simple Stories Emoji Love collection. It’s a great collection for telling stories without a lot of words.Supplies: Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, Simple Stories Emoji Love collection, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
I wanna bring back “Sticker Cards”. (Not sure “Sticker Cards” was ever really a trend but they should have been because it’s quick and dirty). After spending a bit too much time figuring out where all those emoji’s should go on this page I decided to try whipping together a quick kid-friendly card from this same collection. I have been adding all the fun paper clips from Simple Stories as little mini-gifts on my cards.
Are you afraid to try art journaling , not sure where to start? Start with a sketch! Here is my latest page. I laid down my layers of circles across the page and at the top just like the sketch. The branches represent the journaling. Can you see the sketch inspiration? Try squinting – it’s there.Supplies: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L journaling blook and adhesives, Liquitex molding paste and stain, Tombow markers, Magenta Nuance powders, Clearsnap ColorBox Smooch ink and Fluid Chalk ink, Southern Ridge Trading Co. die cut, Heartfelt Creations stamps.
My girlfriend Shirley named this page for me. I think this is my newest favorite art journal page. I’m feeling really inspired by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Art journal pages. They make a great base and take so much abuse. Gesso, layered with every ink in my collection, texture paste, stamps, paint, vellum and them die cuts. I covered the Southern Ridge Trading Co. die cut in white Clearsnap Smooch ink . It pulled the whole layout together and gives it an eerie glow. I stamped a dragonfly from Heartfelt Creations in Clearsnap ColorBox Fluid Chalk ink and them glued it on top. This is a great way to test out positioning of a dominant stamped element.We want to see your take on our monthly sketch – CLICK HERE – to join the fun.
