Sketch Challenge

November is here and that means another DCWV sketch challenge. Check out the sketch.

I was inspired by the triangle layers and decided to use them to draw focus to photos on a two-photo layout (instead of the three in the sketch). I added in more arrow type elements to keep the eye flowing around the layout. I used the Blue Citrus stack, a 6×6 Printed Cork stack and a mat stack from DCWV to make this layout. Hint, that white paper is just the backside of a print from the Blue Citrus stack. This is a great use for those prints that aren’t your favorite. The solid white adds a calm foundation to a busy mix of pattern and shape.



If you don’t know what scoliosis is, it is an abnormal spinal curvature. There can be known causes for this condition, but more often its onset happens in adolescence and is of unknown cause. A simple bend-forward test can be done to check for the typical hump of the back of scoliosis patients. Two of my children now have this condition, which isn’t surprising since there is a genetic link. You should have your children’s backs checked for scoliosis, especially daughters as this condition is far more likely to become severe in girls.
