Hello! Emily Pitts here today with a brand new-never before seen- exclusive to Crate Paper-sketch for you. I'll be popping in the third Friday of every month as the Official Crate Paper Sketch Contributor.
I'll post a sketch for you to interpret as you like. I'll also post some examples from the design team and myself to help get you started. You have ONE week to work on your project, scan/take a photo, and send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'd love to see how you creatively use Crate Paper products, all entries should use at least 50% of our products. It doesn't have to be the newest release, it has to be at least half Crate Paper.
All entries must be received by the next Friday night 11:59 P.M. MST. I'll pick one winner and make an announcement the next Monday. For this month's challenge, that makes the deadline Friday, August 27th. Winner will be announced on Monday, the 30th.
In the future, we'll be adding the sketches, designer layouts, and the winning entries to a gallery so you can access them whenever you need a creative boost. Be on the lookout for that.
So you've got the who, what, where, why, and when of this challenge, what else do you need to know? What will you win? Winners will get to choose the collection kit of their choice!
Here's the sketch for you, a bunch of blocks, in a bit of a skeewampus design. You can use lots of photos or focus on a single large image. This sketch works great turned any which way, it's very flexible. There's not a suggested place for your title and journaling, you can put them anywhere you want!
This is my interpretation. I turned the sketch 90º counter clockwise and rotated one of my blocks to make it fit the title better. I used the Pink Plum collection, but add some SEI, Studio Calico and Jenni Bowlin. Doesn't the Pink Plum go well with the butterfly? I love that about Crate, it stands well on its own, but it's also very easy to mix with other manufacturers.
Larissa stuck pretty much to the original, adding her title over the blocks. Her measurements coming from the top right support her theme so well. She used the School Spirit collection for her sketch interpretation, and I love how she rolled up the measuring tape beneath her photo, such a clever touch.
