August Sketch and a Competition

Since we have put together an amazing team I thought I would try them out with a sketch and am very happy with what the girls have done!!
If you would like to join in then feel free to, link your layout back to this post in the comments section and there may just be a little chippie prize pack for 1 random winner too!!
**Entries due by August 31st midnight

So here is the sketch Designed by myself

And here is what the girls have come up with

Belinda
Belinda has used the Birds in Tree on her Layout

Michelle
Michelle has used a Squiggle Border on her Layout
Michelle says
"This LO is about Caden and his favourite toys at 2 years old.

They are "Kerchow" (aka Lightning McQueen) and Mack."

**TIPS**

  • Border pieces do not have to be used as borders ! I have used the Squiggle Border as an accent embellishment on the LO.

  • When using a lot of colours and pattern papers in your LO, to ensure your 2Crafty chipboard stands out, try metallic inks for a different look and overall effect. Here I have used silver versa colour ink.
Kerryn
Kerryn has used a Tattered Heart on her Layout
Kerryn Says
"I have used Glimmermist for my background and doodled some lines in opposing corners.
I have backed the Tattered Heart with patterned paper, inked it with red ink and then applied Stickles to finish it off."

Tammy
Tammy has used a Lamp Post and Lilly's Vine

 
Susan
Susan has used a Tulip Spray

Anthea
and I have used Wrought Iron Border
I love this piece, its a gorgeous Vintage design.

**TIP**

"Ink your chipboard pieces in a nice bright colour, then once dry to dull it down a little give it a light coating of Pinecone coloured ink."


So there you go, what do you think of what the girls have done? I think they have done an awesome job!!

Now don't forget this is open to our blog readers too, if you want to take part in the sketch all you have to do is upload it on your blog/gallery linking back to this post for your readers ;) and leave a link in the comments section of this post to your layout/card/project.
1 person will be picked at random and will receive a pack of chippies.

You know what, that means there are 2 chances this month at wining yourself a pack of gorgeous Chippies!! Don't forget that by commenting on the girls posts ad becoming a follower you will also go in the draw to win yourself a pack of chippies too!!
