Our March Sketch Challenge Winners!

It's so much fun to announce winners and we love to give away prizes to our challenge participants.  But first, we want to show you how our design team member, Keren, used our April Kit, Victorian Roses.   I just checked and we have one kit remaining in the Store.

"Memories with You - Together" by Keren Tamir

This is a picture of our family on a trip last year!! it was taken professionally with a black background. I wanted to use the black flowers from the kit so I thought it would match the picture. I used the Blue Fern Floral Clock. I covered it in gesso, distress stain and then I masked it with the Prima marble mask using textured paste. Finally I sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst. I don't usually use trim or seam binding on my pages as I don't make the nicest bows. However I really like the way Erin makes her bows so I tried to make some of those too. Not as professional but not bad for a rookie.

"Strong Willed" by Keren Tamir

I made a layout about myself. I looked at the word strong in the Prima frames and I really thought it fit my character as I've been through so much when I was in my 20's. G-d made me strong willed so I can overcome all obstacles he put in my way.

 Now we would like to announce our winners and show some of YOUR layouts!

The winner of the March Sketch Challenge, selected by a random draw is:
