Baby Canvas

This week is Add On Sketch week at Sketch Support and it's a cute one. If you follow Sketch Support at all, you're use to these sketches. If you don't, you might be asking yourself, "what the heck is an 'add on' sketch?"  Well, I'm glad you asked! I like to think of them as handmade embellishment inspiration. Usually, Allison has come up with some adorable image such as a cupcake or balloons (like this week) in a very creative way. She gives dimensions and ideas just like her other sketches and then the Creative Team comes up with their own ideas for added inspiration. I'll admit I was a little hesitant at first but when I started to use them on my projects, I realized how fun they are!

Take the balloon sketch for this week. You can find the sketch with original dimensions and such by clicking here. But what I did was added an inch to make them larger in order to work with my canvas. And this is a CANVAS not a card. LOL The reason I stress that is because I guess it kind of looks like a card in the photo. Nope... it's a canvas. :)

Supplies - Patterned Paper: Lily Bee Design; Cardstock: American Crafts, Core'dinations; Alpha Stickers: Basic Grey; Paint: Craft Smart; Spray Ink: Clearsnap; Glaze: Glossy Accents by Ranger Industries; Adhesive: Helmar; Pen: Uniball Signo; Electronic Cutter: Silhouette SD; Canvas, Jute: Unknown

I kept the canvas clean and simple. After hanging it on my own wall to test it out, I realized that less is more with this one. I plan to sell it and personalize it anyway. So whoever purchases it can request having the name added and possibly a little framed photo up by the balloons.

Add On sketch week is happening all week so come on by Sketch Support and check it out!

hugs,
Melissa
