Hello everyone. I thought I would share another sketch with you that I did while I was enjoying a warm cup of tea. I don't have any fancy computer program where I can create the sketches - I like to do them free hand. I went to my favourite scrapbooking retreat this past weekend and I took this very rough sketch with me. I ended up doing 6 layouts using this sketch. I did add some pieces and moved things around to make the layouts look different. But I was very pleased with how they turned out and I plan on doing this more often. Here is the sketch.
Here are a couple of the layouts I did following the basics of the sketch.
For both layouts I used the "Capri" Adorn It line of paper which is two-sided paper. Using papers from the same line really helped as they have the colour flow that I like.
I began by placing my picture onto the layout where I wanted it to go without adhering it down. I then started to cut some of the main pieces according to the sketch making sure that the patterned papers had a colour flow and went well together. I didn't care about patterns as long as the colours were okay. I also cut pieces with cardstock that blended well with the patterned papers. As I cut my pieces, I did not adhere them down right away. I wanted to make sure that they were placed correctly. I only added a few flowers to the layouts and some small brads. I did add some flags which are not shown on the sketch.
I now plan on getting out my box of scrap papers and co-ordinate colours and patterns that go well with each other. I plan on mixing and matching papers from different companies. This will be a great way to use up some papers scraps rather than letting them collect dust.
More sketches and layouts will be on the way soon.
I hope you enjoy!!! Try this idea. I am sure you will create some great layouts.
Until next time
