Welcome everyone in day 4 of my "week with sketches" week.
I hope you like this week so far! We have only two days left, so it's high time to start using those sketches.
Today I want to focus on using lot of circles on your layout. Of course it could be triangles or hexagons,but I like circles so today's sketch has a lot of circles. It could be not only paper circle, you can use enamel dots, badges, brads, or even twine or pencil. Everything will make a great background on your scrap.
This is sketch #4.
And here is my take:
I used twine to make a large centered circle. Small circles are from paper, enamel dots and pencil drawings. It was fun!
Lisa said: Circles are a little challenging for me since I am a pretty linear person when it comes to design. But it is always fun to think outside your box! The photo has lots of different colors, but I picked out yellow and orange for the papers.I wanted to use the circles as embellishments, so I roughed up the edges and added wood veneer hearts to them.
Marnie said: Oh, this sketch was fun! At first I thought it wasn't really me with the circles in the diagonal but then I realized that the diagonal was a linear element and that it was still really structured! I did swap out a couple of the circles for circular elements. Is it okay for me to admit that might have happened by accident when I ran out of coordinating color papers? :)
Sam said: I have always love the use of repeated shapes on a layout. I am inspired by the circle elements on the sketch than span across the page so I decided to die cut some round doilies and sprinkled them all over the page.
This is very creative sketch, and easy to use. You can use lot of embellishments and patterned paper. If you will use it, please let us know and leave link in comments. If you prefer, you may download a layered template here.
See you tomorrow!
