Here we are at another Sketchy Saturday and it has been rather sketchy here with horrid Sydney Summer heat and me with a horrid headache with a little nausea thrown in for the fun (not) of it!
Here is todays Diva Sketch Challenge #14 set by Alicia. When I first saw it I thought it was a tad plain and I wanted to do something a little different and I know my ‘circle’ is not in the middle like the sketch and I’v just realised I’ve changed the orientation and that bar across the middle …. I suppose these sketches are open to interpretation arent they?? I hope its ok :/
Here is what I came up with.
I was going for the ‘rustic’ look and think its just about there.
I’ve used the Outlaw Designer Series Papers and the Wanted stamp set.
I’ve also used a chipboard ring from the On Board Blossoms and Basics and used a scalloped circle from Sizzix and using my Big Shot machine.
I’ve also added some wide stitched brown grosgrain, twill and a buckle from the Hodge Podge. I frayed the twill ends to give it a bit of a worn look.
I do hope you like it – its not exactly what I’d thought of at first but sometimes the original idea is nothing like the finished project.
I tried taking a close up so you can see the pieces to the wheel. The chipboard and natural ivory is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the centre image is also raised with Stampin Dimensionals.
I do hope my variation from the original sketch is ok and that you like what I’ve done. Dont forget to check out the Utah Diva’s Blog to see what the other girls created.
Now I’m taking myself and my bewdiful headache back to bed.
