I've decided to send out a call for design team members, probably 4 (but may be more) from all over blogland, the reason being, I thought it would be nice for you all to see different takes on the same sketch posted next to each other on this blog, at the moment you only get to see my efforts, unless you blog hop of course, which I know a lot of you do ;)
This blog was originally set up as a place for me to publish my sketches, to motivate the mojo whenever I got stuck for ideas, and hopefully by blogging them others could use them too, well there are more of you taking part each week (THANK YOU!xx) so i'm pleased that the sketches are useful to all of you too :)
As this is a sketch blog, obviously each week the challenge is a new sketch, occasionally I may add additional requests (eg. only black and white, add buttons, ribbon etc) so as a member of the design team, all I ask is that you will be able to make an example to show on this blog alongside the other DT (you will be able to see the sketches in advance of course)
Also if you would like to design a sketch yourself then that would be great as the first saturday of each month (starting october 4th) will be "DT week" where one of you will host that weeks sketch so everyone can use your sketch for inspiration ;)
If you would like to be considered for a DT position then this is what i'd like you to do please...
1. Make TWO projects, (cards, layouts, ATCs, inchies, anything at all) using this weeks sketch (#13).
2. One of the projects that you make must have a Christmas theme, the other can be of any theme you like as long as the same sketch is used.
3. Leave a comment under this post linking to your work/blog, and at the end of your comment clearly type the letters "DT" so that I know that you are interested.
4. DT applicants ONLY... please submit your work by 11pm UK time this Thursday (28th) this is so that I have time to visit your blogs.
DT members will be chosen and notified on Friday, and their names will be announced on this blog next Saturday (30th August).
PLEASE NOTE: Only those with "DT" at the end of their comment will be considered, and are asked to make 2 projects instead of 1 and to also submit their work by 11pm Thursday.
Those of you who do not wish to be considered for the DT but would just like to use the sketch anyway as normal, then of course please do so :)
Here is sketch #13, I'm looking forward to seeing your work! ;)
Here are my 2 cards, the first uses Provo craft Bitty Scrap pad paper the collection is called 'windswept', and the image is by Penny Black and I think its called 'ups down mouse' but i'm not sure, I only have the image not the stamp. The sentiment is a vertical one from Stamps Away which I stamped then separated the words. I rotated parts of the sketch as you can see.
Both the Stamps Away sentiment and the Provo craft paper pad were bought from Sassy Crafts.
This one uses Dovecraft Christmas paper, the image is from a set of teddys I bought from eBid, I used my swiss dots folder on the horizontal band and used a heart border punch on the red piece, The flower was put together using scraps of the swiss dots paper, 3 gold brads and a flower from my stash.
Looking forward to seeing your work!
