Operation Write Home - sketch 243
Topic: Sketch Challenge

I think sketches like OWH 243 are really 'back to basics'. The centered elements kind of hold everything together while the off center ones add interest.


The key for me was noting where the bordering elements were, setting the stage for the coordination of layers within them.

My starting point, as usual, was the two rose stickers. I chose a coordinating color for their background and an accent strip that mimicked the shapes and color in that background paper.

For the next layer down I chose a lighter version of the orange, in a solid, and a green printed stripe - low key but still pulling color from the stickers.

The final layer, the background, echoes the color and, a little bit, the shape in the most forward layer. This paper has roses in it as well, like the stickers.


I used blaks as the bordering throughout and reinforced this with the stamped sentiment across the blank space of the center layer.
