My One Sketch

Here's my sketch for Miss Smith's Just One Sketch Class.  Still way behind on the prompts thanks to the feed issues, but hopefully I can catch up a little this weekend.  I started fiddling about in Photoshop Elements before deciding that there was nothing wrong with good old pencil & paper (& marker pen & scanner LOL).

Thanks to some welcome extra feed-back about my "style" as seen on my example pages I've added a couple of extra points (thanks guys):
  • Layering and overlapping √
  • L shapes: either formed with the photos and papers or the photos themselves √
  • Curves: curved shapes or at the very least rounded corners √
  • Not a lot of visible journalling √
  • Big, bold title (Julie) √ 
  • Not wishy-washy or frou-frou (Helen) √
  • Framing (Siân) √

Love the sketch!

I'm working on putting together a little book with the faces that we colored as part of Mel's project, and I just wanted to tell you how happy I am to have a little piece of your artwork to include in my book! :o)

Don't worry I'm behind too and haven't produced a LO yet. Do like the not frou-frou comment - I can relate to that!
