First, we are thrilled to welcome the talents of Donna Jannuzzi as our sketch designer. You are probably very familiar with her book from Ella Publishing and we couldn't be more excited to have her inspiring us each month with a new sketch. Thank you Donna!
Our first sketch encourages 4x6 photos for ease of use, and has lots of white space for you to leave or fill, depending on yout preference.
You may download our first Saturday Sketch here.
Beginning with Donna's sketch, I created this layout.
This month our second challenge is a color challenge. Seeing this beautiful autumnal photo, we were drawn to its soothing color palette.
If you study the photo, you will notice that the colors appear in their pint (grey/blue & brown), quart (dark forest green & chartreuse), and gallon (golden yellow) measures. Not only does this add to the harmony and balance of the photo, but also lends itself to a perfectly presented color scheme. I was also excited to see the colors separate from the photo to realize that the combination is as helpful for autumn photos as it is for non-seasonal layouts.
Here is the layout I put together with the colors.
Our final Scrapbook! Saturday feature is a little freebie for you, to say thanks! Beth Proudfoot, download designer extraordinaire, will create something for us each month. This month, she designed a subway art that also has some fun other uses. It prints out in 8x10 to easily fit in a frame as art.
But wait! Look at all the other things you can do with it as well. Treat toppers or wrappers ...
... cards or treat bags ...
... and even scrapbook layouts!
Here is the link to download.
And while it is very fun to use this as art, please consider using it to capture some favorite autumnal photos or memories!
Thank you for stopping by! We hope you accept the challenge to use the sketch, the colors, and the word art to help make your scrapbooking a little more fun this week. We can't wait to see what you come up with!
