Operation Write Home sketch 33
Topic: Sketch Challenge

Forced compliance... when you take two papers that really have nothing in common and force them to work together. This is the story of OWH sketch 33:

I started in the scrap bin envelopes with the red patterned paper and the slightly violet script paper. Nothing in common whatsoever. they are different in color, in style, in value, everything!

So I introduced yet another color with a vibrant background cardstock, keeping it un-patterned to provide 'white space'. I layered up the two feature papers even though the central piece was not as large as the sketch.

Needing something to provide focus, I punched a sentiment on gray paper with a round punch and then used Distress Ink in Milled Lavender to bring the color into the same color family as the script paper. A lavender ribbon trapped underneath reinforces this.

I used faux stitching on the backbround and the punched circle to tie these elements together.
