Sunday Sketch with Patricia


Hello Beautiful CTK Friends!  Welcome to the first August Sunday Sketch.   Here is a look at the 12x12 sketch that I used to inspire my 6x8 layout using the August Scrapbooking Add-On Kit.

I used the Life Unscripted cut file to start my 6x8 layout on the left by flipping the hearts so that the flow would resemble the drops and motion at the bottom of the sketch.

I cut the Life Unscripted cut file separately.  First, with just the hearts for the background of my layout and backed with the book paper and then using the the rainbow pattern paper you see on the right for the title.  I made sure it cut where the rays would be seen in the title to add that affect.  Next, I used more of the book paper, transparent die cut, frame die cut, and pattern paper to create the blocks going across the page, but instead of copying the sketch, it inspired me to lay them in a layered look with just one photo adhered across the layers.

Once that design was in place, I started added more die cuts, stickers, and stamping to finish the page.

For the right side, I used the Page Protector #3, 4x6 + Journaling spot.  I trimmed that same pattern paper used from my cut out title on the left to help create balance between the sides.  Then just finished that top pocket with another photo and a few embellishments and stamping.  I used the new Stories stamp set for all of the stamping on this project.  So love the embellishments and stamps to create this light layered look for this pocket.  Those tiny stickers and the foam flower stickers are a must-have!  The L and the R foam alphas are from the Life Crafted August kit.  It helped to create just a pop of color.

To help the flow of colors and balance, I trimmed a solid piece of that same pattern paper I used for the title and top pocket to type my journaling to finish this project.

My new favorite kit!  Just amazing and I hope the kit as well as this new Sunday Sketch inspire you to take some time to create!
