I have a new method of doing sketch challenges, and it appears not to be working. This past week was #3 for CAS(E) This Sketch!, and I do mean WAS. I missed it by 6 hours. Boo. But I had my project in my grey matter and I needed to get it out onto paper, so I played anyway,
Here's the sketch:
I knew that opening needed to be an owl's home. Ah, well, hopefully I'll get to the next one in time.
Oh, that new method? It's called: saving trees. I usually print each sketch on its own page, which is how my craft desk gets so out of control. So I decided to get smart and now I open a Word document, then copy each sketch into it and shrink it down so I get lots on a page, then I just print one page. This is the second week I've done that, and I can't find either page of paper. I think my method needs refinement. Sigh.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Leslie I keep all my sketches in a folder on my computer with all my other crafty stuff I always use MCS to design my cards so then I just choose my sketch and drag and drop it onto my MCS page and print it off with my papers that way I can resize it to fit the smallest space (as long as I can see it) and then just discard it after as it is only on a scrap of paper love what you have done though even if you were to late for the challenge I think we have all done that at some point I know I haveReplyDelete
Sometimes it's more important to exercise the grey matter than to make a deadline.ReplyDelete
I really like the little circle of dark brown around the hole in the tree -- it's a subtle touch that makes it look way more finished.ReplyDelete
Since color doesn't matter in a sketch, would it be useful to print them off on not-white paper? If you used florescent orange or yellow (or even pink) those would probably be some pretty hard pieces of paper to lose!
adorable! I just love that owl. Which made me think I need that stamp set... :-(ReplyDelete
You may have missed the deadline but you nailed the sketch. That owl is adorable.ReplyDelete
I do my sketches the same way you just started doing them, but I have a binder clip that I use to attach them to one of my drawers on my desk. It's not pretty but it works. Mostly.ReplyDelete
These not-midnight deadlines get me often.
I totally LOVE this chubby owl - he looks perfectly at home :)
You're card's a Hoot. Really adorableReplyDelete
Love it! You could put the sketches in a 3 ring binder and have that binder be an inspiration jump start. I save sketches to my PC as well. I like both methods.ReplyDelete
