Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone,

I recently found out about a blog called The Paper Variety which hosts weekly sketch challenges and offers prizes. Their about page says they offer Prompts, Projects and Products. A new challenge is posted on Wednesday and the submission is due by the following Tuesday. There are a few rules about submissions, but they really aren’t a big deal. The “big” rule is that it must contain paper!

Currently, it looks like a quite blog– a personal feeling blog– which is really what I am looking for. I’ve struggled with online scrap communities because I tend to feel lost in the crowd. In spreading the word about this site I’m sure it will increase traffic, which is good for their viability. That will make their community grow but I hope it doesn’t grow to be so big that it will lose it’s personal feel. Right now, I’m hoping to use this blog to have some fun and get to know some other scrappers. You might check it out too and see if it is something for you.

On to this week’s sketch challenge…
