Imaginisce's April Sketch

This month the Imaginisce sketch was designed by none other than me. How fun is that? I am such a sketch novice, so to have my sketch featured is sooooo exciting. Here's the sketch and my take on it.



Play Hard: My toddler is such a ham. He stages all sorts of silly photos for me to take of him. While at his brother's soccer practice, he slid into the net and then posed. Complete with the ball.




I used Imaginisce's Live LOUD collection for this one. I thought the colors worked well with the photo even though it had nothing to do with music. You can't see much of the music images anyway since I chopped up the paper so much. I love how the pops of black in the doodling, buttons, and alphas really draw your eye in. The layout seemed a little boring until I journaled around the star. That fun little element made me feel better. LOL!


The rest of the designer's takes on the sketch are amazing and represent soooo many different Imaginisce lines. Be sure to check them out!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll give this month's sketch challenge a try. The prize is TOTALLY worth it.

Great sketch and layout! I wouldn't have imagined to use stars instead of circles. I guess I'm a baker and not a cook...I follow a recipe exactly.
