Hello! Happy Friday!! This week I am participating in my first Mojo Monday Sketch. Julee has lots of wonderful sketches over there! I love sketches...they are such a great starting point for card makers. I often struggle with layouts. I often have an idea in my head of some of the elements I want to use on a card...(Usually something new I bought! lol!)...but getting that stuff actually on the card is sometimes hard. With a sketch I have a guideline...but feel like I also have "creative liscense" to add or change something to fit the idea in my head. That said, I stuck pretty close to the sketch provided for this card. The paper was rather busy that I didn't need to add anything more to add interest.
I wanted to remind everyone who has not entered yet that Kelly is giving away BLOG CANDY over at the KL SNS store blog! You can still enter until tomorrow night!!
On another note, I am *thinking* about starting my own challenge here. Last week I had asked what challenges you like to participate in because the day before I had made that origami box from participating in SCS challenge and was so happy I did give it a try. But many of you took it to mean that I was going to start a challenge of my own. I had not intended to....but all your replies got me thinking. The most of you said you enjoy sketch challenges. But let's face it, there are alot of sketch challenges out there already. (just off the top of my head I can think of 3 great sources for sketches Technostamper, SCS, and Mojo Monday. And there must be oodles more) . After sketch challenges there was no close second. Answers ranged from color, inspiration, limited supply, technique...etc...
So, I was thinking about doing a different theme every week. Week one I might have a color challenge...Week 2 we might have a technique that we haven't used in awhile or ever...Week 3 might be a masculine theme....etc... I was thinking that this would keep it interesting...and can help us try something new that we didn't even know we would like, work out of our comfort zone and get us out of a rut. I mean, I know that sometimes (ok...OFTEN) I just get into making everything look the same. Same colors all the time. Same style. Same same same....
What do you think? Would you participate? Would you share a link here for us to all ogle over your lovely creation? Would you be more willing to participate and share your work if every so many challenges there was a prize involved?! Now, I know you people like to win stuff! LOL! Let me know what you think!!
Have a Fantabulous Friday!
