The colours in this set include Sprays: Orange Creamsicle, Golden Doubloons, Delphinium Turquoise, Cathedral Pines Olive, Sandra Dee Sepia; Embossing Powders: Orange Creamsicle, Caesar’s Gold, Guten Tag Teal, Tannenbaum Green Gold and Bratwurst Brown

Today we’re here with some inspiration for the Let’s Get SketchyLet’s Get Sketchy mid-month reveal sketch!

September 15

We were inspired by Lindy’s Color Challenge and have used the September Color Challenge Mega Kit for our layout.

Our background consists of stamping with versamark and heat embossing with the colors in the color challenge kit. We also stamped with black and sepia ink. With four different stencil patterns, we sprayed four colors from the kit. The papers used for our layering around our photo, have been created by spraying the colors onto white cardstock. Our title chipboard has also been heat embossed. We stamped the butterflies with the spray for a watercolor effect. Our flowers and leaves have been stamped and heat embossed and then spritzed with color.

Africa

The International Tournament of Art and Craft Challenge 4 is taking us to Africa. Well, Africa is special to us because Sunila hails from Kenya and has spent her childhood there.

Africa thus brings some stark imagery to our minds and we’ve used that in our creation.

We’ve created two canvas panels incorporating the themes and the mood-board for Africa.

  • Warm, bright colors- We’ve used metallic accents and warm desert colors.

  • Repeated ethnic patterns- We focussed on the folklore- their work, music, dance and repeated that symbolism.

  • Charms, pearls, metallic wire- We’ve created ours with clay.

  • Words or text- Not included as we felt, our pieces speak for themselves

  • Textures, cracks, rust effect- The entire feel of the pieces’ is rustic, with varied textures and 3 D images.
