Beate's Weekend Challenge #20
Wow! Twenty weekends of sketches by Beate! Has it really been that many? I've completed a handful of her sketches and each one has been a fun challenge indeed. This time around I didn't quite get my first card right with her sketch so I made another one that was closer to what Beate had posted. Part of the reason I messed up is because my computer is no longer anywhere near my stamping room. This leads to me either hand drawing the sketches or print them out. Most of the time I hand draw them on a 2"x2" piece of notepad paper. I've been stashing all these tiny treasures away to make a mini sketchbook someday. Anyhow, I didn't take my sketch with me when I made the first card and I hate to admit it but my memory skipped some of the finer details. It was just as fun to make a second.
In regards to photo taking. Laurie and I are in the midst of trying to make a lighted box for taking pictures of our stamping art. So far we aren't having any luck with our labors but Laurie is determined and I know by the end of the week we will have a better studio set-up. Got any suggestions? Keep in mind that we live in a very remote area and have to do most our craft shopping online.
I look forward in reading your helpful and encouraging comments. Thank you for visiting me today! :-)
