Hey everyone! It's Kira and I am back with TWO layouts for you using the Sunday Sketch. Have you used the sketches for your travelers notebook layouts yet? I consider myself a TN newbie...or a TN dabbler? Lol. I don't know, I do TN spreads occasionally, but it's definitely not my main form of documenting. So I find sketches really helpful!
I used the sketch originally for this 12x12 layout. I chose this picture of my dog since it was horizontal vs. vertical orientation. And then I stuck very closely to the sketch.
I created a small cluster to the left of my photo using the camera from the thicker pack, a couple stickers from the Here & There sticker pack and finished it off with a puffy sticker from the PL kit.
I added a small amount of stitching on top of the layers in black thread. Along with a few puffy stickers from the embellishment kit and Pocket Life kit to add another pop of color above my photo.
I used the Here & There thickers for my title. And layered it with a sticker from the Here & There cardstock stickers. I brought the puffy stickers down to my title to create a diagonal design along my page and incorporated some more black by adding some splatters.
I added my journaling strips and a date stamp and called this page done. You can watch the entire process here.
Now see how I used the same sketch but in a TN format.
The first thing I did for this TN spread was flip the sketch on it's side. Most of my photos are portrait orientation since I take them on my phone. So it made more sense to me to flip the sketch.
I also went a little lighter on my layers. And honestly, finding the right balance was harder in this format than it was on the 12x12 layout...but that's probably because I am a TN newbie/dabbler.
You might notice that I did add some stitching on my layers here too. I did that before I adhered on layers into my album, and chose black since I knew I was going to add black throughout the rest of the layout.
When I started working on the reverse side, I knew I wanted to use one of the adorable Amy Tangerine paperclips as my title. This led to me deciding on sort of flipping my orientation again. I think it added a really whimsical look to the page.
I added the phrase "Photo Story" from the TN stamp set. Then added journaling strips underneath. I finished the page off with black splatters. You can watch the entire process here.
I can't wait to see how you interpret this sketch!
Until next time,
