Sketch Day with Candace Perkins

Hello friends! It’s Candace here with you to share a fun sketch and the layout that I was inspired to create using it. I LOVE working with sketches! I can take the time to just play with paper and embellishments and not have to worry about creating a balanced design; all the work is already done! Let’s take a look at this week’s sketch:

Here’s the layout that I created from it:

Supplies | March 2020 KitAdventure StickersTiny Shapes and Dots Puffy StickersWood Veneer Adventure Tags, Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack

Using the sketch, the March 2020 Kit, along with the everyday-themed papers and embellishments, I created this layout about a recent family hike. I knew I wanted to make a bright, colorful and fun layout, therefore I wanted to keep the base of the layout simple and monochromatic. I used a basic word sentiment paper from the Flourish Paper Stack to act as the base to the main photo stack.  To bring color to the photo and make the layout pop, I added various papers and journaling tags to back the photo. I love the different angles and patterns this created.

To create the title on layout, I combined a tag from the March Kit along with die cuts and the adorable Wood Veneer Adventure Tags. I chose to vary the angles of the tags to create more variety. I love the final look! 

For the three blocks on the sketch, I choose to create blocks of patterned paper, photos and embellishments. I focused similar colors on each block, adding dimension and interest with contrasting shapes and textures.

I had so much fun creating this layout & it came together in a snap using the sketch! I can’t wait to see how you use the it to create a layout, card or travelers notebook spread! Get super creative, have fun and tag #EllesStudio when you share!  

Have a beautiful day!
