Sunday Sketch with Melanie

Hello crafty friends, Melanie here today bringing you this week's Sunday Sketch. It's a fun one and I have a layout and a TN Spread for you today. But first let's have a look at the sketch.

For the layout I mainly used the Skyland Pocket Life Kit but also papers from the Skyland Scrapbook and the Pattern Paper Play Kit.

Instead of two landscape photos I used one vertical picture of myself 'hubby' took during our latest getaway while I was setting up the camera to take a picture of the two of us. Other than that I pretty much stuck to the sketch.

I used a stencil to add some splatters on the bottom of my layout and then started by matting my photo on coordinating papers. After that I added the base layers with patterned papers and put my photo on top by using some craft foam to add more dimension. The red exclusive paper of the Kit is so pretty and I also used some blue tones. For more layering I tucked some of the embellishments beneath my photo and made some tags of patterned paper. The cork circles give a nice texture on the layout, I always love using them.

For more texture I ruffled up the edges of the papers.

After that I worked on my embellishment cluster on the bottom right and added my title by placing the 'Oh yeah !' above my embellishment cluster and nestling in the 'SO ME' by using the gorgeous puffy stickers, they are my favorite alphas!

I placed the journaling above of my photo and to add more contrast I stamped the cute camera from the Daily Routine Stamp directly on my page with black ink. 

For the TN spread I rotated the sketch and used two small landscape photos we took on a recent bike trip.

I used the Skyland Pocket Life Kit and  layered some of the papers on both sides of the TN spread, placed my photos on the right hand side and a journaling card on the left. My title went on the very  top of the right page. I finished off by adding some of the lovely epoxy stickers and a little bit of stamping.

Now it's your turn!  I can't wait to see what you're all making, be sure to share your projects on Instagram and our Facebook Group and tag us so we can see your work.

Happy crafting, Melanie
