Sketch Thursday 01.26.12

Hello and happy Sketch Thursday! This is the last sketch of the month and it’s a fun one full of layers and texture… This one is based on Leslie’s S&S layout from the December inspiration gallery.
Once again two of our very talented designers created layouts using the sketch and this is what they came up with:
Kim said: The 3 photo blocks on the sketch were perfect for the 3 photos I  had taken recently of my son playing lego, they were the perfect orientation. I wanted to create a bright layout with primary colours which matched the lego pieces so  I chose some bright tags including the Today will be foreveer treasured tag. I replaced the circle element with a lil snippets days of the week tag to house my typed journalling and then created a blocked feel with the remaining tags!

Megahann said: When I saw the sketch, the two things that really drew me to it were the grouping of photos and embellishments, which I do quite regularly, as well as the strong vertical axis along the side. I used these two aspects of the sketch to create my layout, The Rock. 
And we have a bonus for you this week 🙂 I also played along with the sketch and created this layout using January’s kit: A Love Story. I turned the sketch sideways and was inspired by the multiple scallops and tilted photos.
