Skipping Stones ~ Guest Designer for October ~ Sketch #148

I'm so excited to share that I will be joining Skipping Stones Designs as a guest designer for October!  That means that all month long, I'll be playing along with the weekly sketch challenges which start every Tuesday!  And the best part is that I get to do with my pal, Miriam Prantner (check out her awesome blog here)!   Here's the first sketch for October, Sketch #148 by Pamela Young!


Today I resisted my usual urge for bright rainbow colors and did something a bit more subdued.  To contrast the hard lines of the stripes, I chose to use the soft images of the stamp set Dandelion Dreams.  I only used a little bit of bright yellow in there to break up all the gray:)



I hope that you play along with the sketches this month on the Skipping Stones Designs Blog!  One lucky winner is picked at random to win a free SSD stamp set!  And don't forget to check out Miriam's blog too!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
