I have to admit, this sketch gave me fits at first. It was my natural instinct to do a more abstract interpretation of the sketch, and I tried several versions, all of which wound up in the scrap pile. I finally realized that my "muse" wanted to do a landscape scene. Go figure! Once I let go, and stopped trying to force myself to do what I clearly did not want to do, it came together, and this is the result:
I used some torn scrap paper as masks to create the various hills, and just sponged on many shades of greens and browns. Added some grassy stamping (some even heat embossed) and the birds in the sky. The little house was stamped on cardstock, cut out and glued on. I used a mini alphabet set from SU at the last moment to add the "Home Sweet Home" sentiment because.....I just thought it belonged there, following the curves of the hills.
Don't forget to head over to Heidi's blog to see what the rest of the team did with Marty's sketch. One thing is for sure.....we all saw it differently!
