Sketch #1

When I embarked on my challenge of making cards for all of the OWH sketches, I decided I didn't want to go in order. Sometimes a sketch doesn't inspire you or doesn't fit well with other elements you want to use. I've skipped all around, but here's a version of Sketch 1. In skipping around, I've noticed that the more recent sketches are more complex than the earliest ones. If you're new to cardmaking, it might be good to start at the beginning.

Are you getting sick of seeing these papers yet? I have been working to use up 6 sheets of 8x8 paper from this line and it's making a lot of cards. The pad of paper came with die-cuts and stickers, plus I also have epoxy buttons and acrylic tags that coordinate. There's lots left to be made from this set, but I'll put it aside when the 6 sheets are used up and choose something else to work on.

Cards shipped to OWH in 2012: none thus far, but my box is filling up nicely!

  1. Kathryn, This card is so nicely done. The papers aren't one's that I would have thought would go good together, but they do look lovely together. I will try to experient more with different papers now. This is why I love blogging. I can get to see other people's visions, visions that I don't usually have myself. Thanks for sharing your talents with all of us.

  2. Been without power or internet for a bit, so I'm trying to catch up tonight. Saw this (and your earlier versions with this paper) and it really caught my eye. Nice job. Like Donna, I'm not sure I would have tried these together, but their scale and common color helps pull them together into a very successful design! Good show, Kathryn.
