Sunday Sketch with Marsha
Hey friends! It's Marsha here today with this week's Sunday Sketch Challenge. I love using sketches, and this one is so perfect! I used the NEW May Life Crafted Journeys Kit, This Is Life Daytripping Stamp, and some of the digitals from the shop.
Here's a look at the sketch:
Here's my Life Crafted layout using the sketch:
To begin the layout, I printed a ledger paper from the Documenter TN Basics Digital Papers onto white cardstock. These papers are perfect to use as background pages in the Life Crafted Album! I trimmed a few patterned papers from the kit and layered them behind my photo, following the sketch. Next, I added an ephemera piece and some labels from this month's Printable Cutapart Elements. I used the Daytripping Stamp to stamp a few sentiments using black ink. To embellish, I added an embossed faux leather sticker, an aqua puffy ampersand, and a chipboard sticker.
To complete this page, I typed my journaling onto a piece of vellum, stapled it onto the page, and stamped a camera icon using the Daytripping Stamp. I also stamped the date using a roller date stamp from my stash.
For the right side of the spread, I printed a Digital TN Paper to use as the background. I trimmed one of the journaling cards from the kit into a tag shape to hold the title, choosing to add it upside down for added interest. I stamped the word "exploring" using the Daytripping Stamp and completed the title using the puffy aqua alphabet stickers. I continued to follow the sketch and added some patterned paper behind the tag and layered an ephemera view master reel die cut to the edge of the layers. I also added another one of the puffy faux leather stickers above the title.
To complete the page, I continued to follow the sketch and added a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of the layout. As a final finishing touch, I added some machine stitching to several areas of the spread. I love the texture and interest this adds!
This layout came together so quickly using the sketch! I hope you will join in on this week's sketch challenge and share your projects with us on the CTK Fan Page on Facebook or use #citrustwistkits on Instagram.
