Beautiful You - Let's Get Sketchy Blog Hop Challenge!

This week Let's Get Sketchy is hosting a SECOND blog hop in celebration of their two year anniversary! The ladies in the blog hop have some FABULOUS sketches and inspiration on their blogs. This challenge is on Lynn's blog.

Here's the sketch:



Her twist for this challenge was to use stenciling or watercolors on the page. I have no stencils, so I guess it's water colors for me! I've used water colors on a mini journal before, but never on a page. So it was fun making this page, and I've got to say, I LOVE the results!

Here's what I came up with. It's my favorite page I've ever made by far. Love love love!









I was also inspired by a challenge over at A Cherry on Top, hosted by Brandy. She hosts an "inspired by fashion" challenge every month, and this month, cami's and spaghetti straps are in! She challenged us to use a neutral background (show some skin!) and thin, sheer, see through elements on the page. When I saw this sketch from LGS, I KNEW it would be perfect for Brandy's challenge too.

I LOVE doing creative challenges that encourage and inspire me to get out of my comfort zone and try things I never would have considered otherwise. I LOVE the outcome of these challenges and I've added another technique to my aresenal!

Supplies:
White CS - Colorbok
Love My Tapes cloud washi
Pebbles Honeycomb Chevron washi
We R Memory Keepers Yellow washi
Chickaniddy Crafts Heart enamel dots
Studio Calico Wood Veneer stars


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
