Announcing...WOW's May sketch challenge

There's two things most scrapbookers love...
  1. Using a sketch for inspiration; and
  2. The chance to win prizes!!

Well, this month at Words or Whatever, you have the opportunity to do both!  Simply create a layout or card based on the sketch below (created by Wendy Smith), and upload your take to the WOW facebook page, or email your entries to Entries close 31 May 2012.

There are some awesome chipboard packs to be won, and there are three ways you can win!

  1. One winner will be drawn at random;
  2. One winner will be selected by the WOW Design & Creative Inspiration Teams; and
  3. One winner will be chosen by public ballot.

For your entry to be eligible, your entry must feature WOW chipboard! Enough of the's the sketch!

Here's my take!  I love a sketch that uses standard sized photos!!  I was digging through some older photos, and came across these two. I had set them aside to do a layout about my cousin's wife's 30th birthday, but I felt these two told a completely different story.  Look at that pout! Poor little Seth was upset that his baby sister was getting so much attention from Nanny, Poppy and Aunty Beth. Until she came along, he was always the centre of their attention. Thankfully he got used to sharing...but that sweet little face gets me every time!

For this layout, I used the following WOW product:

  • 12x12 cog frame set C819
  • mini dragonfly set C1053
  • classic alphabet lowercase C1385

I have coated all chipboard pieces with markers in colours that coordinate with the patterned papers I've used. I then finished them off with glaze. I have also added liquid pearls around the cog.

Here's another layout that was recently featured on the WOW blog. This photo was taken in December 2011, just two months before Nanna passed away in February this year. I'm so glad we took a photo with her that day. She looks so happy to be surrounded by her grandbabies. This layout just reminds me how much I miss her.

For this layout, I used the following WOW product:
  • Lovebirds on a branch C1332
  • Girlie alphabet lowercase C1387

Once again I've coated the chipboard in markers and glaze. I swear, markers are a chipboard fan's greatest tool!  Here's a tip...colour your lettering in with marker before removing them from the base, as it's much easier to handle and reduces mess.

For more inspiration, head on over to the WOW blog. Are you scrapbooking this weekend? Have a go at the sketch. I can't wait to see what you create!
