This month was my turn to create a sketch. I decided to use a rather simple design. I also made it a personal challenge for me. I tend to put lots of photos on my pages. scrapping just one photo is actually a challenge for me! So I only created a spot for one photo.
However, the sketch is simple enough that you can embellish it with additional photos if desired.
Here are the layouts that each of the artists made from this sketch.
Nancy's page packs a punch! I'm not just talking about her daughters expression, which is priceless and so well teamed with her title! But the way she has pulled all the elements together really brings home the message of this memory. I just love her selection of patterned papers, they complement the page without distracting from the mood, but then again, with a cute face like that, how could you get distracted?
This page by Sara has so many fine details. Her use of brilliant colors and subtle patterns allows them to all blend together to create an artistic feel. I really like the playing card journal spot and background, doesn't that add such a vintage feel to this page?
Lastly is what I created with the sketch. The layers in the center worked well with the Steelers uniform stripes so I did a page about my youngest and his love for his favorite team. I framed the photo with a cluster of elements and a bunting banner above. And I'm proud to say that I met my own challenge and kept the page to just one single photo!
I hope that this gives you some ideas for projects that you can do with this sketch as well. You can download both the layers .psd file (for digi scrapping) and the .jpg sketch (for traditional scrapping) by clicking HERE.
We would love to see what you create too! So if you use the sketch, please share your creations with us by sending an email to: email@example.com Perhaps your project will be featured on an upcoming Reader's Pages post!
