Ronda Palazzari is here today with a new sketch and her take on it. But before I show you her gorgeous work, I need to lay down the ground rules for you.
1.Project must be created new for this challenge. It must use the sketch in some discernable way.
2. Project must look like a MME project. We say
this every month-but we are not going to give you a percentage of MME that
you have to use. Just make sure that it is comprised mainly of MME
3. All submissions must be turned in by midnight on Tuesday,January 1. A random winner will be announced with the first January challenge on January 2. Please enter via the InLinkz form below.
4.Winner will win MME collection of their choice.

Ronda says:Instagram has changed the way I take daily photos. I love those little squares of everyday life. This sketch was a perfect way to capture our date nights that are so very special to us.
The background paper is so beautiful so I just wanted hints of texture that didn’t take away from the patterned paper. I used modeling paste & a stencil to create subtle details. I picked the bright papers of The Sweetest Thing to pop against the neutral background.
Like the sketch there are two layers of patterned paper on the bottom left & upper right corners. I interpreted the circles by using two kinds of doilies, one paper one and the other is a beautiful crocheted doily.
The enamel dots and stamped images really complement the splatters of spray ink and stenciled hearts. I placed the journaling on the side next to the stamped images to complete my layout.
Note about the sketch:Layering is easy with December’s Sketch. You can use two smaller square photos or one larger photo to layer on patterned papers. Interpret the circle motifs as you wish. Tuck in embellishments here and there. We cannot wait to see your takes on this month’s sketch.
Remember- link your submissions via the inklinkz tool below. I will be back later today with a winner for the first December challenge.
Have fun and good luck!
