Sketch Challenge with Allie Stewart

Welcome to another Sketch Challenge day here on the ES blog! This month’s sketch was inspired by Jen Schow’s “Living the Dream” layout from our April DT inspiration projects:

Allie Stewart used the sketch to create a layout all her own. Let’s see what she made!

I used Jen’s clean and beautiful layout to inspire a page that was more my style. I flipped the layout and used just one 4″ x 6″ photo.

Supplies | Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, Live Laugh Love Puffy Stickers, Live Laugh Love Washi Tape Stickers, Orchid Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Spring Sequins, March 2017 Digital Cut File

I added pops of color and floral pattern, using the Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, but kept the layered background and stitching like on Jen’s layout.

Where Jen stamped, I used the March 2017 Digital Cut File, coloring it with oil pastels. I added Spring Sequins and Live Laugh Love Puffy Stickers for embellishment.

I love the bright and happy colors, and it’s fun seeing how two different layouts can be created with the same sketch!
