Adventure Bound - Rikki G

 Hi Rikki here kicking off my May design team shares. You would have seen that we run a monthly challenge and it  has a moodboard and a sketch.... did you know you can enter either challenge? Or  you can combine the challenges.

So I had a little brain wave, why dont I work my posts this month around the challenge. So I will start with the sketch, how to break down each step, each layer and each embellishment.

Theres even a process  video for you to follow along with.


*** If you do the sketch part of the challenge you  can complete it in any colour you like.
