5 WAYS ART WALK WILL MAKE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH A SKETCH
You know, every now and again…I sometimes just like to turn off my ability to think. Anyone else relate? 😉
What is even better is that when that thinking becomes more “doing” in relation to the enjoyment and process of creative play and memory keeping.
That is why I am super excited to share a fun and seasonal take on a sketch challenge!
Sketch challenge? Yes…a sketch challenge!
I am super excited to take on this challenge.
Sketches take out the leg work of composition and design when it comes to scrapbooking a layout. With this handy sketch avail I can just enjoy the creative process and allow it to guide me as I translate the sketch onto my own page and as I interpret it.
Ready to see where it led me? Here we go!
Using the beautiful Art Walk collection to create this fun foliage inspired layout in my Storyline Chapters scrapbooker notebook was so much fun.
In honour of this sketch, and the time of year, let me share with you just how I fell in love, 5 times over, by using Art Walk.
#1. Art Walk Paper as a Mini Envelope
#2. Art Walk Stamping on an Envelope
The patterns in the Art Walk 6×8 paper pad are ideal for creating gorgeous pockets and envelopes which can house notes and interactive pieces that accompany a layout. I love that I was also able use the Art Walk stamps to create additional ‘texture’ and character onto the envelope in a subtle way. Simply stamping and layering the images in both black and a similar colour to the envelope provide a fun finish to the pocket.
#3. Art Walk Postcards as Photo Mounts and Journaling Cards!
Not only did the Art Walk postcards lend themselves beautifully in creating this page based off the sketch, they also made for great journaling cards. I love the versatility that paper crafting allows and this is a prime example of stretching supplies to meet multiple needs easily and efficiently.
#4. Embellishment Layering.
I adore using my favourite dies with pattern papers. This time, is truly no different. The ability to create seasonal embellishments to compliment the sketch design came together so nicely. It adds just enough texture when paired with the definition stickers and serves as a layered embellishment. I just adapted the sketch here to make the “bulk” of the embellishment placement on the left hand side of my page, versus the right which was initially demonstrated. Remember, sketches can easily be adapted to fit your creative needs. It is just so nice and refreshing to have a sketch serve as a starting off point where we can then guide our own ideas from.
#5. Stickers To Frame and Enhance A Photo.
The card stock stickers that are part of the Art Walk collection are ideal for highlighting a main photo or enhancing it. I loved using this ‘sunkissed’ word to serve as a simple anchor and you can even spy some additional Art Walk stamping below. Another great way to use supplies from the same collection together.
I hope you enjoyed this take on the sketch above and have enjoyed seeing how one collection can work in 5 ways to bring it all together. It really does make things so much easier and give more room for creative play. I challenge you to play along! Embrace the sketch and your favourite stash to see just how you can use one collection in 5 ways to make your version of the sketch come to life.
Thanks for playing along!
