Welcome to our new challenge blog...

Hello everyone!!! We are very excited that you found our brand new sketch challenge blog and hope that you will stay a while and get to know us a little better.

I have been thinking for a while about starting a site like this, and with the support of my good friends and fellow site administrators Irma Peredne and Lou Dalhstrom I finally took the plunge and started this blog...


So what are we about???

The main aim here is to get people journalling...telling their story. It seems as though people are not journalling on their pages as much as they used to. I have to say I am guilty of that too...A lot of us these days tend to go for more pretty or artistic pages and forget the journalling, which is probably the reason we all started scrapbooking.

How will this work?

Twice a month, we will provide you with a sketch as inspiration and ask that the only other requirement will be to add some journalling on your pages...or cards..Yes ...this is also for cardmakers..you can adjust the sketch and make a card from it...and try to add some journalling somewhere. Also beside traditional layout scrappers and card makers, artists that do art journals, and/or altered art are also welcome. Only requirement is that you use the sketch AND add some journaling.
All of the winners will be picked by out Design Team and you will have the chance to be our Guest Designer or to win a prize as well.

In the coming days we will introduce the rest of the Design Team and we hope to have the first challenge up by mid April.
Stay tuned.

  22. Well done Nadia!! What a great idea... and I agree, we've lost the journaling aspect in our layouts, I've been trying to add some more into mine lately because I realise I see so many LO's that look fabulous, but say nothing!!

    Best of luck... I look forward to seeing everything unfold!!

  30. This is really going to be a huge challenge for me as that is the one aspect of scrapping that I am not good at and always shy away from.This might just be the push I need to try and put words to my feelings on my pages!I am also new to sketch challenges but am starting to enjoying that to!Can't wait for our first challenge...
