Welcome to Sketchtember! Here is your first sketch. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create something based on this sketch. It could be a scrapbook page (any size), a card, an art journal page, whatever you prefer.
Here is my take on the sketch. I decided to stretch it out to a 12x12 page and to switch out the straight border strip for a wavy one that really fit the way dd & family did their cross country road trip, stopping at tourist attractions along the way.
Points: one page created & shared (2), #1 Sketchtember page (1) twist (1) & bonus (5), #4 outdoors (1), #5 trip (1), #6 dd's pic's (1), #7 4x6 (1), #8 three pp's (1), #12 inked edges (1), #21 premade words (1), #53 rectangular photo (1), #54 square page (1), #71 dog in photos (1), #80 dots (1), #95 dd's family (1). total: 21
Each sketch challenge is Sketchtember will have a TWIST. For mine, today, I want you to try some DIY colour. I painted a wood element to the colour I wanted it. You could use paint, mists, inks. Maybe colour a stamped image with pens or crayons... Digi scrappers can add colour to an element or to a background.
Everyone is welcome to take on this challenge. Please share your takes on the sketch in this thread so we can all be inspired.

Dictionary, your take on the sketch is awesome! I love the pretty soft shades and patterns, and you did an amazing job colouring that flower. Also love that you have a photo of the longer view and then a close up of her face!

Butterfly I did did a travel notebook double page, uploaded it to the Flickr group, and I’m struggling with how to display it in my post. Im open to any ideas! i did sketch one with the twist! the links work to view in Flickr but I can’t share the actual image in my post.
To share it in your post here open it in Flickr, click on the arrow in the right hand corner, go to BB Code in the top bar of the pop up box, copy the URL, paste it into the body of your reply here. As a guide, I've got this set to Medium 500 x 473 size.

That is a lovely photo, elaynef. No wonder everyone likes it. Love it scrapped with the blues, and great idea to rotate the whole sketch, including the scallops. Are those blue doilies? Or a border punch?
