This week we are offering you TWO sketches...one for cards and one for layouts!! The card sketch is from Dani Flanders' Block Party gallery:
And the layout sketch is from Sasha Farina's Block Party gallery:
We invited member Anabelle (agomalley) to choose one of these to use as a starting point this week, and she chose the card sketch...we adore this layout she designed!
Supplies: Block Party Kit, Block Party Printables, Chipboard Hearts from Wildberry Court add on
Here are Anabelle's thoughts on the sketch:
I had so much fun using Dani's card as my inspiration this week. I decided to use diagonal strips of paper on my page, as she did on her card. Since I love adding texture to my layouts, I included the chipboard on two of my strips. This gave the page an extra pop of color, as well. Instead of the hanging star, I decided to add my photo on the bottom right hand side. This photo of my friends, my husband and me is from the Mummer's Parade in Philadephia. It's one of my favorites from that day, so I wanted to highlight it on the layout. I balanced the picture with a small cluster on the top left corner. I love the printables this month, so I used the small circle for my journaling. Using cards as design inspiration is something I love to do. I probably wouldn't have chosen to do a page with an angled feature on it, so using the sketch really pushed me creatively!
