To me, sketches are the most brilliant thing ever in the scrapbooking world. Again, just my opinion, but here’s why. They can be adapted to any product you have on hand and they’re “legal” to use without feeling guilty. Not to mention, they’re easy to make yourself or print and file them away for reference. I mean, why reinvent the wheel when a sketch is there, it’s simple and quick to complete a layout you’ll cherish forever.
This week, I had the opportunity to make a layout based on Lisa Truesdell’s design from the INTO THE WOODS gallery.
To make my layout, I looked at the sketch, then put it away for a few days. I wanted to make a layout inspired by the sketch, but not an exact copy, and that’s the only way I know how to do it. If I have the sketch sitting right next to me, I tend to over-analyze it.
I came up with this layout:
Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzill), Twine, State Fair Die Cut Tags (Studio Calico), Wood Veneer Hearts (Studio Calico), Addy Alpha – Pink (Studio Calico), Nibbles Paper, Tickets Please Paper, Midway Paper, Button & Epoxy Sticker (Epiphany Crafts), “Talk of the Town” tag (vintage)
As you can see, I borrowed the banner portion in the upper left, then added a title below the photo. This layout was so easy to make since I based it on the sketch, but yet, it doesn’t look too similar either.
Now it’s your turn. You have until Monday, March 28 to upload a layout based on the sketch and link it to this post. You can copy it exactly, or make it your own. Whatever you’d like, just make sure to meet the deadline for a chance to win one of two $5 gift cards.
