Happy Sunday! It's Lisa here, and I can't wait to share this week's sketch with you.
It's based off of one of Stephanie Howell's layouts from the Who's Who gallery. I love Steph's design - the vertical lines contrast so well with the horizontal photo, and I adore the texture that her embellishments add.
I have to admit something - most of the time when I follow a sketch, I look it over, come up with a general plan of how I want to interpret it, and then head to my desk. I don't refer back to the sketch till I'm done - and it's usually a bit of a surprise to see how well I have (or haven't!) stuck to the design.
Supplies: Patterned paper - Elementary Show Your Work, Elementary Atmosphere, Elementary DieCut Blue, Pelaton from Napa Valley; Stickers - Elementary Label Stickers; Wood Veneer - Stars, Alphabet, Frames; Mist - Mister Huey's Atmosphere, Mister Huey's Lunch Tray, Mister Huey's Applejack, Mister Huey's Sunshine, Mister Huey's School House; Staples - Tiny Attacher
As you can see, I maintained the strong vertical lines from Steph's original layout. Instead of using patterned paper, I masked off sections and used my Mister Huey's Color Mists to create a rainbow background. I also took a cue from Steph's page and added my title to the white space in my photo. I kept my journaling along the left side as she did, but contained it in one corner with a veneer frame.
To add a little interest to my color blocked background, I added patterned paper, stickers and embellishments to each section. The Mister Huey's Mists are matched to the Elementary line, so it was easy to find accents that would coordinate with the colors.
I can't wait to see how you take on the sketch! Add a link to your project by Saturday for a chance to win one of 2 $5 gift cards! Good luck!
