But... did you think we wouldn't notice that it's halloween today? Along with the sketch, you need to make your page with a halloween theme! If you don't celebrate halloween where you live then feel free to use a different holiday theme.
Don't forget that you have until 6th November to upload any of the October challenges and add a link to the Inlinkz sidebar :)
We're really sad to see Justina go but she's certianly going out with a bang with her lovely take on the sketch this week. Thank you so much for being a part of the team Justina. We've loved having you on board:
I rotated the sketch 180 degrees and did go a bit wayward, but it's there, honest!
I don't really celebrate Halloween, I've never really been into it. I don't mind pumpkins like this, it's quite a nice autumn sight but I got really frightened by the carved pumpkins faces when I was young and I still dredge seeing them now!! So this is as far as I go with Halloween! I don't even own any Halloween patterned papers so I used some Halloween type coloured papers, distressed them and drew some cobwebs to give it a bit more of a spooky effect.
Material used: Basil cardstock cream, Papers: Webster, MM, Bo Bunny;
flowers: prima; hipboard: WRMK, leaves (plastic/no brand flowers),
green paiting/glue; glimmer mist green forest
We don't have Hallowen in Brazil...only some schools have a small party, based on the US holiday so kids go to school and play about, etc. But is not traditional here. So for this challenge Ive scrapped about other holiday: Xmas! This was a great chance as I still had Xmas pictures from last year not scrapped (does this happens only with me or you remember your Xmas pictures just when another one is close?! lol).
Pedro loves to go to the shopping center and take pictures with Santa (he still believes he is the real one). And here a close up on the details. Ive used some leaves from those plastic flowers and added an extra adding some glitter to it. And to add a bit of layer to the paper, Ive used some glue/painting to reinforce some of the paper design.
Nic:I loved using the sketch to create this:
The halloween theme was a bit more tricky as now my son is all grown up, we don't tend to really celebrate this holiday any more and we don't have any photos from the times when we did. This fact was echoed in my stash, as after searching through it all I only had the one piece of halloween themed paper! Not to be defeated, I had the idea of creating a page about my son's scooby dooby doo room guard toy which he loved in his younger days. And after all, scooby and his gang were the ultimate ghostly goings on crime solvers............so a bit of a halloween link there ;-)
As previously dicussed I don't do Halloween and I'm therefore Halloweened out with my one LO already done :) So I decided to scrap some of last year's Christmas photos that have been sat on the side for the last 10 months waiting to be scrapped. I flipped the sketch upside down so that the title could go in the top left hand corner. I used The Glitter Girls Collection 'Treasured Memories' embossing board to give the LO an embossed edge which I inked to show it off. I also used the board to create the box below the photos. The paper's are My Minds Eye 'So Sophie', which I love.
Valerie:Love a good sketch challenge and I'm looking forward to having one every month here at The Studio! Thanks to Sara for this one! I pretty much stuck with the program. I liked how the title balanced the photo so I didn't change very much. I did add a little block at the top to repeat the black accent from the frames.
