Mojo Monday Sketch

Yes, I realize it's pretty early Saturday morning but sometimes that's the only time I get to create. My friend Teri calls herself The Midnight Artist...maybe I should change my blog name to The Early Morning Creator! Just kidding but I do wish I could sleep in on the weekends once in awhile.

It's no secret I love to use sketches to help me create. Back when I started scrapbooking and cardmaking I thought it was cheating but now I just realize it's smart. I'd much prefer to use what little creative time I have to actually make something usable. With that being said here's a sketch from Mojo Monday that I was inspired by:

And here's my take on it. I literally had only 15 minutes to make this while my pizza was in the oven last night!

I modified it slightly but think I stayed pretty true to the design. I used the Wings Level 2 Assortment to create a rolled flower. If you want to try this flower make sure to use several glue dots or strong adhesive to hold it on the base.
