Sketch 4 - Melissa Goodsell

Welcome to our new guest artist, Melissa Goodsell. Melissa lives in Tasmania, is married to Richard and has two beautiful children James and Isabella. Mel is a designer for Tarisota Collections and part of the Aussie Scrap Source Design Team.

Melissa loves and adopts all kinds of styles in her work, from simple and elegant to collage with her main inspiration being her family. One of her favourite techniques to use is stitching, either by hand or machine. You should check out some of Mel’s felt and other stitched creations and her amazing cards that she regularly puts together using the DCM dares.

So here are this weeks' inspiration layouts from Melissa and the design team!

Mel I really enjoyed your sketch this week - I know I'm repeating myself but I have never worked off sketches until now and I'm loving it. Your LO is so sweet and all the DT gals - terrific work, I too have spent ages looking at them all.
