Sketch Challenge By Chriss Hird

Happy Friday everyone!  Looks like its going to be a beautiful day!  Have you ever moved your scrap stuff outside and scrapped in the lovely summer fresh air?  Today could be that day!  Why not take this sketch from Beck Fleck (January 2009 Page Maps), a few supplies and get out into that warm summer day, doing what you love?!

This was indeed a challenge for me, I don't work from sketches very often.  I'm really not sure why, I had fun with this one!  So it just goes to show, if you step out of your comfort zone once in a while, you may be able to surprise yourself.  I did!  Here's what I came up with...

And here's a shot of the details...

When working with a sketch, don't be afraid to stray from the plan.  Get your basic idea, and then add your own ideas!  This makes it truly your own!  Have a lovely day, enjoy the weather and happy scrapping!
