march sketch challenge

Look at that... two posts in one day from me! Now if both of them had been scrapping stuff that would have been even more of a miracle. I spent the morning in the art room at the school. Actually I was in the hallways of the school hanging up some of the most beautiful artwork you could imagine for the school wide art show that goes on for the entire month of March. Those kids are truly talented.

Anywho... in the sketch challenge group I am in, this was the sketch for March. Pretty neat one. I do believe I shall use this again as it was pretty easy to do and I can see different ways to add pictures and such.

Here is my take on the sketch. I used my scoring board to make the flower medallions and used one of my EK Success border punches for the circle borders. I wish they would put the name of the punch on the punch. It would make it easier when trying to describe things. I guess I could have put it on when I bought it, but alas, I did not.

Alex got to paint an ornament while Kira was doing two projects for a Girl Scout badge. He took his time and was really careful about where he put the 'ornaments' on the tree. I did the trunk of the tree and filled in some of the paint on the sides that he missed but he did everything else. It came out so nice. He hung it on his Christmas tree and it will be a treasured ornament for years to come.

Thanks for stopping by to peek. I need to work on a card... hoping to get some inspiration. Wish me luck.
