This week we are once again offering you TWO sketches...one for cards and one for layouts!! The card sketch is from Jennifer Picard's Spencer's gallery:
And the layout sketch is from Becky Novacek's Spencer's gallery:
We invited member Jennifer (starxlr8) to choose one of these to use as a starting point this week, and she was drawn to the layout sketch!! Check out the fun details on her layout...
Supplies: Front Row Card Kit, February Grab Bag (BasicGrey tape stickers, transparent alphabet, Yearbook pocket), Kraft Woodgrain cardstock, Sundrifter Thickers, Studio Calico grid cards, My Mind's Eye Sweetest Thing word stickers, Crate Paper border sticker, Stamp from Block Party Project Life Kit, Brilliance galaxy gold ink, Hero Arts black dye ink.
Here, Jennifer shares her thoughts on using this sketch:
I began knowing I wanted to tell the story of my daughter Emily's first steps and her journey as a beginning walker. I had several photos to choose from, but decided on two to best fit on an 8.5x11 canvas. I often crop my photos square with a white border, but left them Polaroid-style to elongate their space on the page. With just 6x6 papers in front of me, I first wanted to tackle the banner across the top in a clever way. Two uneven strips layered with a transparent tape sticker and a border sticker allowed me to re-create that look. Next, I knew I wanted to use a journaling card in the stitched pocket. I added the journaling and embellished this first (using my go-to Tiny Attacher), before adding the photos, paper layers and titles. I don't do a lot of embellishment on my pages and like to add small bits and stamped images as finishing touches.
We love the Polaroid style photos, the kraft woodgrain cardstock as a base and the pocket to hold her journaling. Thanks for joining us this week, Jennifer! You can see more inspiration from her in her SC Gallery, and on her blog.Jennifer is also active in the Twitter community: @jenniferswilson
