Have You Got Your Challenges In?

Good Afternoon Arty Peeps!

I hope you are well.
Peg here today to share my sketch challenge page for July. Are you playing along?
Today is the last day to upload, then new challenges for August tomorrow, exciting!

Here's the sketch

I started with kraft cardstock and 3 hues of Colour Blast paste for the background, applying them vertically instead of horizontally. When dry, I rubbed in some Dorland's Wax to stop the paste from being sticky. This is a particularly important step if you are art journalling to stop your Colour Blast pages from sticking together.

As I was scrapping multiple square Instagram pics, I decided a grid layout on black card would work best, keep the page from becoming too busy. To draw the viewer's eye through my photos I used a small piece of patterned paper from a Pink Paislee Memorandum 6 x 6 pad on each side of my grid.

A Kaisercraft sticker, and a chipboard arrow coloured black, created a border between my photos and my journalling, bulleted at each end with a decorative brad. I stamped the date on a label sticker and matted it on another piece of the same patterned paper I had already used. The staples are just for decoration, I coloured them black with an alcohol marker.

My photo mat was not sticking well to the Colour Blast paste using just double-sided tape, so I stapled it on with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I added a cute paper clip and another Kaiser sticker, then stitched around the page a little closer to the edge than the sketch. Some black acrylic paint around the edges and I was finished.

So make sure your sketch and moodboard challenges are up by midnight for the chance to win. New challenges coming tomorrow.

Til next time,
stay arty
