I am very pleased to announce that I was successful in my application to join the Let's Get Sketchy Design Team! This great sketch site has a new sketch up EVERY WEEK. This is my first reveal and I've used a photo I took of Harrison on Easter Sunday, which also happened to be the date he turned 8 months old. He doesn't look very impressed in the photo but he was actually puffing out his cheeks to blow me a raspberry, which is one of his favourite things to do at the moment. I'm so happy I managed to capture it on film. :)
I found this Kaisercraft background paper in my stash and it matched the chevron pattern on the bunny perfectly (it is a bunny, the ears have just flopped backwards). I didn't want all the square elements from the sketch to just be floating on the page, so I laid down some cream paint and added some stamping and paint splatters to the background to ground and centre it all.
Here is the sketch for April Week 2. I know it might look a bit scary (I had a choice of this sketch or another one for my DT application and avoided this one because I didn't think I could make it work), but I've ended up with a layout I love by playing around with the sizes and placements. Check out the blog to see the work of the other DT members too, there are some amazing layouts to inspire you.
