With May being a long month, I have extra time to participate in a couple more challenges. I'm so glad that I got to make a page for the sketch challenge at Playing in Paradise. Just look at that lovely sketch!
I interpreted the row of photos as a banner, to which I added lots of voluminous layers.
I also added one more photo, where the embellishment cluster is in the sketch. I added lots of layers/embellishment to this area as well; thus, it stays true to the spirit of the sketch.
I substituted a block of journaling for one of the photos. The journaling reads: "We don't have to go up north to appreciate Northwoods nature. It's all right here on the Minnesota Trail at the MN Zoo!"
I cut out a sign from a photo to use in my banner. Instead of throwing away the rest of the photo...
...I used it as a stencil with chalk!
My chalk arrows highlight the names of the different animals that can be seen on the Minnesota Trail, since I don't have photos of all of them. As a finishing touch, I mixed and matched alphabet stickers to create my title.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Enjoy these last few days of May!
