Sunday Sketch with Ettiene

 Happy Sunday. Welcome back for this weeks take on Sunday sketch. I love using sketches as a starting point for my layouts. This weeks sketch is so fun. Let’s take a look at it.


I was originally drawn to the simplicity of this sketch with the large focal photo. When I look at a sketch I try to pick out what parts are standing out to me. For this sketch it’s that photo and the 2 strips of paper going vertically on each side of the photo. Usually I take these couple of quick notes as my starting point and then close down the sketch so I can make it my own. 

Since this months kit is all about me I chose a selfie I took of myself after a haircut. I decided because I was documenting a current photo I would use the right now paper as my background paper. I then selected 2 additional papers for my strips. The sketch has some sewing that would be beautiful but I decided to not do it because only a little bit of edge sticks out on my page to sew down. 

I added the florals on a diagonal surrounding my photo just like the sketch has. I felt like I needed a little more layering so I layered some ephemera on the left side of my photo. I typed my journaling up and added it to the page.  

Hope you enjoyed my take on the Sunday sketch. If you use this sketch on a page I would love to see it.
