Hello one and all! I hope that your week has been filled with apples, falling leaves, blue skies, and crispy air. I haev enjoyed the posts this week and have felt so inspired to make some layouts, and Halloween decor. Thank you, Aliza, Lisa, Valerie, and Amy for a fabulous week.
I was intrigued by her "quilting" on the top of the layout. The missing pieces. The patterns. Mmm. It was just so intricate and innovative. And an interesting way to incorporate the season!
Here is the sketch.
(There are mattes on the bottom photos if you look closely!)
I was so excited to get to work with the sketch. Picking and adding the photos was fast and easy. But then, boom! stuck. I tried a million papers with the triangles and colors and background papers, and then nearly gave up. But then, I remembered that the sketch police are on vacation and that I don't need to build it the same. And then I just knew exactly what to do.
I used stars to emulate the triangles, skipping one here and there to keep the part that I found so wonderfully whimsical. Then I took off the background paper and tada! I was in love. Hooray! It went from a struggle to a favorite. Just like that.
I hope you will try this sketch and see what you can do to make it your own and make it something you love. Thank you for coming by!!
