Topic: Sketch Challenge
Sometimes a sketch just hollers out what it wants to be! Such was the case with OWH sketch 96:
When I saw this I immediately thought of a paneled door with a wreath on it. The effort was all in execution.
I had an awesome woodgrain scrap and cut that up into the 4 panels. Since I did not have any more for the door base I created some on glossy paper with ink pads and markers. It did not have to be precise because so little of it shows in the end.
I used a scoring board to score 1/8" from all the edges of the panels and turned them back to crease. I had to clip the corners so they would not wrinkle or bunch up. Each panel got a full coverage of foam tape on the back and was adhered to the door base. I then used alcohol markers in warm greys to shadow the sides of the panels (Copic W7 for right and bottom, Copic W5 for left and top).
The wreath is a clear sticker adhered to a green printed background and trimmed out. The same green was used to back the clear text sticker.
I added tiny green rhinestones to the wreat as a finishing touch.
