Sweet Peach Sketch Challenge


Come join the Sketch Challenge at The Sweet Peach Crop Shop! Playing along is so easy and all you have to do is link your project to a post in the comments. Although we would love to see your work with the Sweet Peach kits, we understand if you want to use any product you choose. So no excuses, give it a whirl. We’ll draw for a Random winner on Monday, August 3rd and then post the August sketch on the following Monday.
I wanted to make my layout as bright and fun as possible, so I focused on the reds, blues and yellows in The Girls Paperie papers included in the July kit, especially to compliment the photo of my kids playing. thus the title: Little Kid Time. I also wanted to incorporate as many elements from the kit as possible.
I cut the little banner flags from The Girls Paperie Pennants paper and just used three of the brightest patterns for a more dramtic effect. Then used a brown Zig Writer to draw the strings and tiny clips that hang the banner.
I used the flap of the Maya Road envelope to trace the patterned paper in order to dress it up a little more than just the kraft paper. Then I added a button and tucked in the Pennant Pins. This is an idea that I unabashedly stole from my dear friend Robbie Herring. You should check out her blog for all kinds of ideas :)
I wanted to incorporate the red airline cards that were included in the kit, and ended up using my retro flower punch to make the shiny smaller flowers. It was the perfect color of red to make them pop. Then I added a light green pearl to finish it off.
Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you will join the challenge over at the Sweet Peach Blog.
