July 1 Sketch and Moodboard Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Let's Get Sketchy!  This week we have another great sketch for you along with a mood board to commemorate the upcoming holiday! Please use the sketch AND board to create your beautiful piece of art!  

Joining us this month as a guest designer is the talented Helen Mazengarb.  
Here is what Helen had to say about herself:

Hi, my name is Helen and I’m a scrapaholic! I have been addicted since 2002 when I first got introduced to this wonderful hobby. My style has changed dramatically since those days, however, my current style is difficult to define because it depends on my mood. I like to create messy mixed media backgrounds, clean and simple layouts and layered patterned paper pages; it really depends on the photo, the supplies I want to use and the emotion I feel at the time. In my craft room I scrapbook, make cards, create mixed media canvases, art journal and paint abstract paintings. Really, I enjoy anything that feeds my creativity. By day I am a West Australian primary school teacher and by night a single mother to teenage twin boys. I love sharing my projects and hope that people find some inspiration from what I create.  My blog address is:
Check out Helen's beautiful take on the sketch and mood board:

(Helen was inspired by the Statue of Liberty and made a layout about her visit to see her)
My inspiration was from the colour scheme and the big alfa's, the moodboard let me to christmas with a lot of red and blue.

My inspiration was from the colour scheme and the big number three {it looked like a 3 to me}and the guys climbing the ladder {interpreted it as climbing the ladder to success} 
(My inspiration came from the stars and colors)
(the inspiration for this one came from the colour scheme, the lace up shoe and the layout with 4 pictures)
(Inspired by the Black and White Colours, the Alphabets and Number)
(Inspired by the red white and blue colours)

(inspired from the sketch and stars)
(inspired by the blue & stars)
(inspired by the black & white photo, the shoes & the pattern in the moodboard)
(inspired by the grey and blue colours)
Michelle V
(Inspired by the red, blue and white combination)
(I was inspired by sense of discovery of the world and every step of humanity)
(inspired by the color red)
