Welcome everyone to day 2 of my "Week with Sketches" week.
I hope you liked yesterday's sketch, and you are ready for more.
Today I want to focus on using small scraps of paper on your layout. It could be stripes or cut elements, paper embellishments, buttons, stickers etc. They can make a great layer to your photo.
This is sketch #2.
And here is my take:
I cut all these feathers from patterned paper and sewed it together on my layout. I like to make this on my projects.
My other projects with similar composition:
This is Jennie's layout:
Jennie: I was excited to work with this sketch, as it's a style I am used to. However, the one photo was a little different for me -- and I was excited to see how it would turn out.
Amy said: Since I went with a larger photo on my layout (I used a 5x7), I decided to flip the three rectangle shapes on the right. This let me use a few scraps of snowflake paper I had left over from another layout. My favorite thing about this sketch was the jagged lines of the journaling; I love displaying journaling in different ways.
Sam said: Love love love the horizontal grid on the layout. So I line up the three instagram photos by following the sketch. I love how I could incorporate 3 photos into one layout to document about my current obsession - crochet amigurumi (making stuffed dolls). I switched the title of the layout to the top of the horizontal grid, it is just a tiny title type with my vintage typewrite.
As you can see this is very fun, versatile sketch, and easy to use. 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!
