Sketch Challenge #28 with Guest Sketch Artist Emma Stafrace

Hello Crafters! 

Today we are revealing our July Sketch Challenge as well as introducing our

July Guest Sketch Artist
Emma Stafrace
"My name is Emma. I live on the East coast of Australia in sunny Queensland with my husband and son. My husband has a fly in fly out job and now that my son goes to Kindy I am finding I have way too much time on my hands so decided to start  a small freelance graphic design business called The Nifty Pixel . I occasionally do customized blogs and logo designs but mostly create digital scrapbook kits and also offer lots of great sketches called Page Drafts. Page Drafts were originally an entity on their own but now come under the umbrella of my main brand 'The Nifty Pixel'.

I scrapbook using many mediums, my main being digital however I am a sucker for playing with scissors so every now and then I'll create a hybrid version of a digital page that I absolutely love. This is a fun process utilizing the digital products by printing them and then trying to emulate the textures and overall design in a traditional way. Using chipboard elements, patterned papers and other fun scrapbook products like distress inks & mists still get my heart pumping he he.

If you are looking for some fun sketches to freely use in projects head over to Scrapstacks or alternatively to Pinterest  and check out my collections. To see more of my scrapbook projects pop over and say hello at my personal blog Just A Girl With Ideas  I'd absolutely love to meet you.."
