Sketch Day with Daniela!

Today we have a new sketch for you, designed to help you get creative with our newest March 2020 products, or whatever else you have on hand to inspire you! Let’s take a look at the sketch, and how DT member Daniela is using it to document a fun memory!

Hi, friends! It’s Daniela here with a new sketch-based layout. I love using sketches because they give you an idea of what the layout could look like in the end. You can just follow this basic composition and creating becomes so easy! Let’s take a look at this week’s sketch:

I think scrapbooking is the thing to do right now. It takes off your mind from all the scary news and obligation we’re all coping with, and it helps to focus on something good. I wanted to highlight a picture taken during carnival last year. My daughter was a ladybug, so I wanted to create in a cheerful and playful style. Here is my page:

When I saw the sketch, I knew right away that I wanted to build four paper clusters. I decided on a color scheme first, which is red and green in this case. Then I went through my March 2020 kit and add-ons and picked all the green and red papers and tags and started layering. I also ripped the paper here and there and added tiny details like the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers and Adventure Stickers. The “Love This” tag from the March 2020 Kit is one of my all time favorites, honestly, I had to use this one, so it is the highlight on my first cluster.

I love the fact that the Black Typewriter Cardstock Alphabet Stickers have the same font found on my favorite tag, so I used them to build a big title on one of the other clusters. I also worked with the Title Builder Vol. 4 Puffy Stickers to create my individual title. The Wood Veneer Adventure Tags were perfect embellishments, because here in Germany, the kids go out and collect candy on carnival.

Combining different textures always is a fun thing to do. I love the Acrylic Clovers from the kit, so I picked the green ones and used it on one of the clusters. The page holds a mixtures of different embellishments: wood veneers, puffy stickers, die-cuts, stickers and these awesome acrylics.

I hope you like my cheerful take on the sketch! Thanks so much for stopping by today and don’t forget to share what you create with this sketch using the hashtag #ellesstudio on Instagram, or in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group!

All the best for you and stay safe!
