I think we should just rename this blog....my love affair with sketches. What do you think? With my motivation to get stories and memories documented up to 2013, I have been relying a lot on sketches because they provide such great foundation to a page. I love that I can change up the orientation and sizes of my photos but still base it off of a blue print. Do you feel the same way? What do you guys love most about sketches?
Anyways these two that I'm about to share came from the latest sketches at Stick it down blog.
The first one is a double page sketch...
and here's my take on it...
I had way more photos for this event than the sketch provided so I made my title smaller but still made it span both pages. I based the colors scheme to the long sleeve shirt that I was wearing in the photos. I thought that was a good complimentary color to the otherwise neutral based colors on most of my photos.
I've been watching a lot of card tutorials on YouTube lately and one thing that I am inspired to do on my layouts lately is to pull out my punches and layer shapes. That's what I did with my title treatment. It got me to use up more papers, plus the layered circles framed my title stickers well.
I had waaay to many photos of this event so to document most of them, I made another page for this event but this time using the following sketch....
I liked how the two sketches helped me preserve this memory without having to create a whole mini album for it. I'm leaning more and more towards pages lately as my mini album basket is brimming to the top.
With this one I used the paper line Solstice from Pink Paislee.
I added some Wink of Stella glitter to the "hello Summer" word to give it a bit more shine. Sorry it doesn't show on the photo
Since I already did the journaling on the two page spread, I just added a travel quote on this one.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have fantastic day.
Till next time,
