We asked Studio Calico Member Stephanie Baxter to take on this week's sketch for us :
From Steph - "I was so excited to work on a sketch based on Laura's 'Today' layout...it was one of my favourites from the July gallery! I wanted to keep the idea of three elements going horizontally across an 8.5x11 page, so I backed the three tags with a piece of patterned paper to use as the foundation of my layout. Typing my journaling on to one of the tags, I kept the idea of having it displayed on one of the three elements, but swapped it over to the other side of the page. The tag wasn't big enough to hold the whole of my title, so I added the other half underneath my photo. To finish off, I added a few elements to layer things up a bit and some embellishments from the kit to give a bit of dimension."
I love how Steph was able to take such a clean and simple sketch and adapt it to her fabulous layered style. Thanks for sharing your work with us!! If you'd like to see more from Steph, stop by her gallery here at Studio Calico or her blog.
Now it's YOUR turn to show us how you'll use the sketch. Whether it's a layout (two pages or one!), a card or something else, link us up to your project by July 23rd for a chance to win a $5 gift card to the Studio Calico shop.
