We know that you all love a great sketch.
Sketches have so much life in them. Use different collections each time, and you are sure to have endless possibilities. You can also rotate the sketch right or left, and get a whole new take on it.
Sketches are created as a “jumping off” point for you. They can be interpreted exactly or very loosely. There are not measurements, so you can make it yours.
CHALLENGE #4: Create a spread using this sketch as your inspiration, incorporating one of the following pinwheel techniques to your spread! When you are done, take a quick photo and post it to the event page before 5:00 pm CST to qualify for the prize.
