Sketchabilities Reveal Day

Sketch #47 from Sketchabilitites' Blog:
It has been two weeks since the last Sketchabilities post, how time does fly. A guest designer was chosen from the members' gallery and her new layout is posted in today's blog along with the rest of the design team. If you want to play along with this week's sketch, you might be chosen to be the next guest designer. There is also a kit from WeScrap that will be a prize for one lucky participant.

Here is my take on today's sketch:

A layout of Jenn

Here is the original sketch:

Karan's current sketch
If you want to see 20 variations on the same sketch, take a look here.  If you want to join in, then post your layout in the members' gallery. If you want to be a part of the team, there is a call for designers for the a three month term beginning in July. The term goes by very quickly and the team is very supportive. Read about the call here if you are interested in applying.

The Layout:
I kept to the layout of the sketch this time, unlike last time where I changed it to a lemonade tag. I've been wanting to make a tree filled with butterflies with a few flying off, so when I saw the sketch I knew it would be perfect. I punched out a bunch of butterflies with a small Fiskars punch. I arranged them in a curvy flight path starting from the title, journeying through the photos, the tree and then off the page, to match the theme of having your dreams also taking flight.

The Background:
My sister, Jenn, has been taking acting classes the last two years and let me tell you about the latest scene she did in her acting class...sorry, I can't or she'd have a fit. Anyways, she took some head shots as recommended by her acting teacher and then posted them on Facebook. I downloaded them and scrapped them, hee hee, so be careful of what you post to cyberspace. I did ask her permission after the fact and she didn't care. So the photos, title and butterflies all work in conjunction to express an idea of striving towards your goals and isn't just to look pretty. Good luck kiddo and you can count of me to scrap your journey and provide plenty of color commentary along the way. 

Here is the only performance I've seen of Jenn. It was an improv soap opera as part of an acting workshop called, "Scandal Harbor". This layout was a make and take we both made at a Scrapbook Expo.

Jenn's Scandal Harbor performance
In case you don't know which one she is because she is wearing a wig and a Madonna outfit, here is an individual photo of her. 

Jenn's character

Of course, after the performance we all had to try on the wig. 
I know not to highlight my hair.
Kevin thinks the wig looks
like Bon Jovi hair. 
Surprisingly, this look
suits Dad the best.
Take care and thanks for reading,
