A sketch challenge to share

Yoo hoo! Surprise!! Told you I’d be back soon bet you didn’t believe me did you LOL

I am popping in here to continue my catch up although a little out of chronological order today as I want to drop this off. My version of the sketch challenge over on the Sketch book 365 blog. I know the October sketch will be going live soon so I didn’t want to miss the boat on this one!

The scrap365 blog is a great place of inspiration and of course is an extension of the fabulous Scrap365 magazine. Every month the design team is sent a sketch to work with for the Sketch book 365 blog and then you also get to play along with us.

This was the sketch for September

And this is what I came up with

And here are some close ups

The paper is quite highly patterned in the background but I really liked the way it worked with my story, it’s from American crafts and although patterned I still managed to add some paint splatter!

I added some ripped and torn paper then distressed and raised my photos

And the bottle top holds tiny shells all held in place with some crystal glaze

Somewhere I do have a full materials list written down but can I find it? I’ve been tidying, say no more, sorry! Why not pop on over to the Sketch book 365 blog to see what the other designers have come up with, it always amazes me the different ways a sketch can be interpreted, and then why not play along?

Thanks for popping by, I hope you’re well and happy and as I’m on a roll I hope to see you soon ;)

As ever Happy Crafting

Love MJM x


  1. Hi Michelle

    Nice to see you blogging... just caught your post on FB... would love to join in with the sketch - this makes it nice and easy to come up with something when things are just not happening in your head - if you get what I mean... great inspiration.

    Hope you are well and will we see you soon on C&C - any more great kits coming up soon???

    By for now... gonna download the sketch so that I can use to make me a layout. I'll go over to the challenge blog and check it out too.

    Thanks - take care
