Sunday Sketch with Diane

Hi everyone, Diane here with your Sunday Sketch challenge! I adore sketches as a jumping off point for any layout. Today I decided to adapt this 12x12 sketch for a spread in my Life Crafted album.

Here is today's sketch:

And here is how my spread turned out:

Because I was scaling this sketch down from a 12x12 to my Life Crafted album, I had to shift a few things from the sketch around to fit. For instance, I moved the banner flags from in between the photos on the sketch to above my photos on my page so I could allow for slightly larger photos.

I used a combination of punches and hand trimming to create enough flags for both the top of my page and a few under my title cluster. I stuck with the yellows and blues from the Peachy Keen paper pad but also threw in some woodgrain paper and a few teal elements from the die cut pack and tiny word stickers to add a bit of interest.

Before I adhered everything down, I typed my journaling directly onto the background and then added my title in black foam alphas to tie in my black and white photos.

I also stitched down my clusters and top strips, I love the texture I get from my sewing machine but it also helps to make sure all those small elements are adhered nicely. Lastly, I added a cork sticker for a bit more texture.

Here's a look at the process this spread took ...

Thanks for stopping by today and I'd love to see any page you create using this challenge so don't forget to tag me and share over on the Citrus Twist Facebook Fan page!

  1. Good day friends. The truth is that GREAT MOTHER IS REAL AND UNIQUELY POWERFUL. Contact the Great Mother today and she will help you. when my husband left me for another woman, i thought that was the end but i contacted many spell casters but there was no positive responses and everything seemed not to be working and i was losing my mind until my cousin told me about the GREAT MOTHER who also helped her to bring back her man and also helped her to cure her herpes disease. I gave it a try and i contacted the Great Mother on her Website and i saw various testimonies about her on her good works how she has helped a lot of people. I explained my problems to her. she laughed and told me that, everything will be okay again and that she will help me bring back my man in 3 days time. I actually thought that it was a joke but since i had no other options, i gave it a try and i did what she instructed me do and to my greatest surprise, my man came back to me begging in 3 days time just as she told me. Contact the Great Mother now on her website:   and you can also reach her on her email:  or you can equally contact her on her whatsapp number: +17025514367
