My Layout Based on a Sketch

Hi, it’s Gael here today and I’ve done a layout based on the following sketch by Pam.
I loved the look of this sketch when I saw it and knew I wanted to try using it.

I started by white washing the green background paper, by painting it lightly with white paint, just to soften it slightly.
I then rolled the edges of the green paper to give it some dimension. 
I used a border punch on both the pink and white papers and overlapped them as the border behind the photos.
The fancy circle shapes are all cut out with a die cut on the cuttlebug. 
The Hall of Mirrors image is one I downloaded from one of my favourite websites – the graphics fairy.  I added the text to the image in photoshop and then printed in onto card at 75% the original size.
I then cut around the image and inked the edges and added some bling to the frame.
The butterflies are from an Australian company called  Collections.


  1. Beautiful page, Gael! The photograph is exquisite.

  2. Love that sketch and your LO from it is beautiful.

  3. So very soft and pretty! Very nice layout.
