There are times where I need a starting point to create. Nowadays, it is so easy to find a challenge site that will start your creative juices flowing. Well, I found out too late that a photo is NOT worth a thousand words…..you actually have to read. I saw this sketch at The Sweet Stop site:
and went with it! I knew I wanted to play with the new Zoo Babies set and the “Tony Soprano” (RIP) DSP (That is what I call the Modern Medley paper) ( I feel like I have to explain: The striped paper looks like a Mob Boss suit to me…and then there is the music sheet in there….pretty sure the music on it is the theme from The Godfather….but then again, I can’t read music. Then there is the brocade looking paper—that looks like wall paper from the and old Italian grandmother house…..you get the picture!)
Here is what I came up with….not straying from the sketch much at all:
I was pretty happy with the results as it was the look I was going for….but when I went back to The Sweet Stop to post it, I realized that the “twist” on this sketch was “It is a girl thing”….And this —-well—–not so much. But that is ok. Do you have any sketch sites you like to visit? If so, let me know—always looking for new challenges…..like raising teens is not enough!
Happy first day of summer!!
