Hi Everyone! It's Susan here today with a new layout based off of the Sunday sketch of the week...
I absolutely loved this page by April in the Metropolitan gallery.
The central block format of the page is right up my alley (so to speak!), and very similar to my clean & simple, graphic style.
When creating my page, I used almost an entire pack of the super-cute Woodgrain Tweets rubons to embellish the top part of my layout - similarly to the way that April used the title sticker to embellish her own page.
Lots of various Mister Huey's mists added just the right element of dimension to my design. Mister Huey's Dark Calico is layered right on top of Mister Huey's Classic Calico in an attempt to "dye" a strip from my package of Documentary Fabrips.
I frequently use a lot of 4x6 sized photos and appreciate a sketch based around a single 4x6 (like this one). Instead of using a vertical portrait oriented 4x6 (as April did), I flipped things up a bit and used a horizontally landscaped pic instead. Since I changed the photo-focus on the sketch, I compensated by moving the title and large embellishment accent down to what had been intended to be the photo spot on the page. And that's what I love about sketches - you are free to switch things up and swap this with that and make the resulting page completely your own.
I hope that you have fun creating your own take on this fabulous sketch. Be sure to link up your creation to this post by next Saturday for a chance to win one of two $5 Studio Calico gift cards. Good luck!
