Hi everyone! Today I’m here to share the 5th sketch in the
This week me and Ella Friend Jennifer Larson are working with this sketch for a double-page spread
You can use this sketch to make a double-page layout or you can adjust the sketch and make just one page. As always, feel free to adapt the sketch to suit your needs. Here is the layout that I made from the sketch
As I went to make this layout of my favorite photos from last summer, I had a hard time narrowing down my selection to just six images. Plus, I noticed that I had a lot of portrait orientation photos versus landscape orientation photos. So, I switched-out two of the 4 x 6 photos for four 4 x 3s. It’s a simple switch, but it’s one of the ways that I often stretch my sketches.
As I said above, joining me this week is Ella Friend Jennifer Larson. Here is the layout that she made from the sketch this week
Jennifer commented that she already had several 3x3 prints ready to scrapbook, so she used those in place of some of the 4 x 6 photos. Jennifer used mist in place of patterned paper in her background and she added some hand stitching to add some movement to the page. If you haven’t already, you should read Jennifer’s Scrapbook Ellaments article on misting, Misting Magic. Her latest article is all about embellishments, Little is Big.
