Nathalie with you today to share this week's Sketch challenge. We love sketches around here, as they make it a breeze to create projects -think of them as your layout's blueprint!- This week's sketch is a fun one, and it can easily be used in many formats. Let's take a look at the sketch.
And here is what I have created for my 6x8 Life Crafted album using the new CHANGE IS BEAUTIFUL digital collection.
I love Fall, and the new October Release was just perfect for this spread. All the rich colors, and patterns just mixed seamlessly.
I decided to use the sketch to add my pictures to the spread. I changed the 2 picture design to a 3 picture design by simply replacing the journaling spot with a picture.
I followed the paper strip design of the sketch for the layers in my spread. I cut a few of the strips from the new CHANGE IS BEAUTIFUL digital kit, and also from the new Farmstead Harvest 6x8 paper pad -available in the shop-. I focused on warm tones for the paper layers, so that I can contrast them with the journal cards and embellishments.
I made a few changes to the original sketch in my page. I decided to bring pops of blue in the embellishments, and also change the design of them -from word strips to round labels-.
To bring more of the blue tone to this side of the spread, I decided to use the Sadie Alpha stamps and Distress Oxide ( Blue Mariner) to create my title. Then added an extra stamped sentiment -Gratitude 6x8 Stamp set- to the bottom of the page.
My choice was to move the journaling out of the page to a journal card inside a pocket. For this, I am using the new CHANGE IS BEAUTIFUL digital journaling cards to create my story card, and the filler card - I fussy cut the wreath and covered the sentiment of the blue card with it-. A few enamel dots to tie the colors on both sides of the spread together,
I hope this inspires you to take a chance with this week's sketch and all the new products available in the CTK shop!
