Sketch Challenge no.58

Hello Everybody

In my part of the world, 01 September is the start of Spring! ;-) So to all the southern hempispherians...welcome to Spring! ;-) It certainly puts a spring in my step! ;-) LOL

So to start the month, we have a super sketch challenge. Here's the sketch.

You can create a card, tag, layout, an altered project, journal pages or even a digital project! You can create whatever you like! ;-)

Guest Designer Badge

We have some amazing Guest Designers for this challenge and our Special Guest Designer is this super crafty and talented lady, Valerie Ouellet.

I'm Valerie Ouellet from Québec (Canada) and I've been scrapbooking for 6 years now. I'm a stay-at-home mom happy to be taking care of 3 little monsters which are often the main subject of my pages. While I'm creating, my style is quite lively and colorful and I tend to use watercolor often and medium.
I'm a designer for 2Crafty Chipboard for 2015-2016, Guest DT for Faber Castell Design memory craft for july to october 2015 and guest Dt for Cuts2luv for august 2015, a company of scrapbook flat flair sold on etsy.
I am so passionate that I own an online store that I administrate at home.

You can follow me on my blog and on pinterest: http://leblogdevall04.blogspot.ca/, https://www.pinterest.com/vall042/my-scrap/

We have another Guest Designer for this challenge and she is a previous TOP HAT
Paivi Jankala. Paivi is a wonderfully talented, crafty gal! ;-)

Hi, my name is Päivi and I live with my family in a small town in Sweden. For a very long time, about 20-25 years, I have made my own cards for different occations but I started with scrapbooking 2009 when I made my first layout. Nowadays I mostly do layouts and cards but also sometimes other projects.
Can´t say that I have a specific stile when I create, it is quite simple but not Clean and Simple.  I love colors and using colors on my projects, often on white cardstock to realy bring out the colors.
I have designed for some Swedish stamp and paper manufactors over the years and have been guest designer for some scrapbooking stores. Currently I´m on the design team for a Swedish and a Finnish inspiration blog.
Just love Denise's sketch for this challenge. I made a page with photos on our little family taken this summer. For the background on this layout I used  watercolors, modelling paste, micro beads and a mask. Patterned papers are from the Swedish manufactor I used to design for. The clock and the square on the middle are cut out with Silhoutte.
 Finally, I would like to thank you, for being picked as Top Hat and got this opportunity  to be a guest designer here at the Scrap Africas blog.

Paivi created this stunning page.

The background is so beautiful and textured and the colouring so amazing!

Thanks so much Paivi for this fabulous and fresh page! ;-)

As always we have the Design Team also create some projects and I am sure they will offer lots of  inspiration! ;-)



Thanks so much to the Design Team for their beautiful projects! ;-)
