We were excited to see how Wendy (wendy mckee) interpreted the sketch to make her layout, and love how it turned out!
Here are Wendy's thoughts on using this sketch:
I loved the original layout that matched this sketch...there were many points to it that I wanted to use as a starting point to my page...
1.I loved the fact that the title across the middle broke the page up into two parts.
2.I loved all the squares and rectangles on the page.
3.I loved the font of the title...also that she mixed several different fonts.
4.Having lots of photos ( which I don?t tend to use on my pages) and that they are different sizes.
Using all of those elements from the original page, I came up with this page...
The little heart in the tag was really easy to make, you just use up some scraps of your favourite pattern paper and lay them out in a fan shape.
I used my Cameo alot on this page, for cutting out the title, the tag with the heart in the middle and the vellum arrow across the bottom.
I loved the bright colours of these pattern papers, so I kept the background cardstock plain to bring out the colours even more.
This page had inspired me to really try to add more photos onto my page especially in different sizes. It?s like putting together a jigsaw puzzle, trying to fit them all in, so I didn?t glue things down right until the last minute.
We adore the tone on tone elements here, as well as the pops of color...and the little details as well, like the word strip below the photos. Thank you for sharing this with us, Wendy!
