Way back when, I did a giveaway to celebrate my 400th follower!
I offered to sketch the winner's home as a gift.
Sissie, from the popular blog, Sissie's Shabby Cottage
was selected and I finally finished her sketch.
It took her a while to get it to me,
and then I was off on summer vacation~so here it is.
Sissie's house is beautiful and has a lot of details like multi-gabled roof lines,
so this was a little bit of a challenge for me.
My sketch style is simple storybook style~
so here is how I interpreted her home.
Since the house was all brick with white trim and a lot of roof showing in almost the same color as the brick, this sketch does not have a lot of color~it is more about the shapes of the windows and the lines. With a fine tip sketch pen I drew in all of the windows and the roof shingles and some of the bricks and then added the color with my pencils.
Isn't her house glorious? I love it's classic style!
This "sketch" is something anyone can do by going
to Picnik.com and uploading a photo of your home,
then add the "sketch effect" to it~and voila!
Your home has been sketched! I hope Sissie likes her sketch.
Her house is on the market,
and this sketch just might become a fond keepsake.
