January 2020 Sketch Challenge | Creative TeamJan 22, 2020
Hello FJ Friends!
It's that time again when we get to share another fun sketch challenge with you all! This month's sketch has been put together by Creative Team Member Danielle and I think it's one of my favourite sketches yet!
It's the perfect excuse to use some of the super adorable mini envelopes from the Madison Kit! So fun!
Here's Danielle herself to share her gorgeous layout that she created with the sketch...
Danielle here, sharing my take on the sketch challenge using the absolutely beautiful Madison kit.
I put together this month’s sketch so I was pretty excited to have a chance to make a layout based on it – yay!
I wanted to create a layout that was all about the joy of the scrap. I chose three photos of my craft room/supplies and made some square mini envelopes to match using the fab Madison papers and a vellum pocket. I filled the vellum envelope with punched circle confetti and layered my photos behind more gorgeous Madison papers. My title was so much fun to make as I used a combination of the ‘beauty’ die cut along with the tiny puffy alphas from the Madison kit and finally some of my favourite chipboard alphas from Lola *swoon*
I hope you enjoy what I’ve created and I’m super excited to see what you put together using the sketch.

Next we have CT Member Lindsey to share how she interpreted the sketch...
Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! For my take on the January sketch, I created a layout in my A5 notebook that I’m using to document personal milestones and things that I’m currently enjoying. Since I was working on a smaller scale than the sketch, I used it as more of a loose reference and tried to incorporate some of the different elements in my own way. Those adorable mini envelopes were perfect for tucking in little positive reminders from the Madison Stamp Set.
I love the variety that you can have when using a sketch...you can either follow it as closely as possible or use parts of it for inspiration to create your own design like I did here!
Until next time!

Creative Team Member Sandra also has a beautiful project to share that was inspired by the sketch...
I adapted the sketch a bit and scattered the elements onto the layout in a more 'wild style'. For the bow, I combined a red Miniwide Paper Clip and black baker's twine. And I used two Madison Die Cut Labels for the journaling. Furthermore, I stamped the title 'Good Day' onto white cardstock with black ink and a stamp from the Madison Stamp Set. Last but not least, I added a final touch with some Noel Mini Acrylic Star Confetti and Harper Epoxy Stickers.

Now let's hear from CT Member Anne to tell us all about her beautiful page...
I really love grid layouts and vertical titles. So as soon as I saw this sketch, I decided to turn it 90° around and use it for some goals for this year. I didn't make a lot of hopeful new years resolutions, but I thought about some characteristics of myself I want to advance this year - my expertise at my job, I want to develop my gardening skills, I'm sure I'll learn a lot about the reconstruction of old houses and I want to be even more patient and kind this year. Think positive and don't give negative thoughts room in my head. Hold on at the thought that nothing is impossible. See wonders. So this layout is a 'no photo, only journaling layout' about 365 chances to build my character with a lot of scrapping fun around it. I'm excited to see your version of the sketch.

Last but certainly not least, we have CT Member Ulli to share her fabulous page with us...
I love to create with sketches and when I saw this wonderful sketch by Danielle I knew I wanted to make a layout with the gorgeous new and fresh Madison collection. I made a 8.5 x 11 inch page with a wooden Frame with the "Tiny Heart" & "Wooden" paper. The flowers and the fresh colors of the Madison collection are reminding me of tropical flowers and so I searched after a hibiscus metal die which I have since some months and which I never have used. I used the Madison solid papers and some other FJ solid paper scraps in soft pink and some in white and build some pretty tropical leaves and flowers. It was very time consuming, but the result was worth it. I added them on the upper third of the page. Then I stamped some of the leaves withe the Madison stamp set and fussy cut them to add them later too. I added a picture of some market women in Bali and glued only one of the Madison Mini Envelopes on my page. I added the big hibiscus flower with 3D dots beside my picture and the envelope. I used a bow metal die to make a cute little bow with my favorite paper of the Madison kit - the tiny heart patterned paper - and glued it under the photo. I love the small little black Madison Puffy Alphabet stickers and used them for my title under the bow. I typed a travel quote, printed it out and glued the paper stripes under the title. Then I used the wonderful floral Madison Die Cuts and some leaves and added them on the bottom of my page and under the top of the floral mini envelope. I used my scissors to cut the overlapping pieces on the border. Then I splattered some black ink across the page and used epoxy dots from the Henley collection to finish off my page. I hope you like my take on from the adorable sketch. I can’t wait to see what you will create with it.
Well there you have it...five totally inspiring projects from the one sketch! I love seeing how differently each project turns out as everyone puts their own spin on it!
We hope that you'll have a go at the sketch too and we would love to see what you come up with! Be sure to share it with us using #felicityjane on Instagram or on the Felicity Jane Facebook page. Happy crafting!
