Sunday Sketch with Laura Rahel Crosby

Hey lovely CTK fans, I am Laura Rahel Crosby, a new members of the CTK creative team. Today I'm sharing my first ever blog post here and I'm so excited to show you my take on today's Sunday Sketch. Here's the sketch I was working off of-

You can see how this entire layout came here:

To creative this layout, I'm using the March Life Crafted kit and as you can see, it sure is pretty. I love how I was able to pull the cool blue toned papers out of the kit and make them work for a summer themed layout of one of my friends and I having a lake adventure.

Usually when I follow a sketch, I interpret it the way I think it works with my photographs, theme of the page, and size of the page I'm using. You can tell I took many elements of the sketch and incorporated them into my 8x8 sized traditional scrapbook layout. I created a large horizontal mat behind my photos using that striped paper. I used the glassine bag that held those cute cork numbers in the kit as my envelope type of pocket in between my photographs. I created photo mats for my photographs using various patterned papers from the kit and some white card stock. My title is at the bottom, a ripped strip of patterned paper is at the top of the page, with black paint splatters and journaling also in their sketched place.

The only thing I really changed was not using one of the numbers on top of my envelope in between my photographs. My page wasn't really wide enough (because I made a scaled down 8x8 version,) to fit one of the numbers without it overlapping my photographs. So I substituted a cute phrase from the stamp set this month in it's place and I love how that looks.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my first project for Citrus Twist Kits and that you give this Sunday Sketch a go! Happy crafting, Laura Rahel Crosby
