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 the basic composition of the sketch and creating becomes so eas1. Let’s take a look at this week’s sketch:
I loved the large paper column on the right-hand side. You can use three pictures on your page, but you can also replace one of the pictures with a journaling tag, like I did. Here is my full layout:
Supplies | June 2020 Kit, Summer Stickers, Chipboard Star Stickers, Puffy Alphabet Banners, Cerulean Blue Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Vacation Wood Veneers, Acrylic Bicycles, Summer Fun 6 x 8.5 Inch Paper Stack
My layout follows a simple color scheme: blue, red and white. I picked these colors because they match my son’s sweater he is wearing in the picture. I decided to use the star patterned paper from the new Summer Fun Paper Stack as a base, then I added paper layers under my photo, just like in the sketch. After finishing the paper cluster, I used different embellishments to add some nice details. The Cerulean Blue Puffy Alphabet Stickers and one of the Vacation Wood Veneers were placed on top of one of the pictures, so all the different elements and embellishments are linked in some way.
I love the Chipboard Star Stickers, and they add a lot of dimension to the page. I chose the red and blue stars and placed them on the blue patterned paper background.
The sketch shows two titles, so I added some of the phrase stickers from the Summer Stickers under the picture. One of the Acrylic Bicycles created a perfect addition to the page, and the ripped paper edge and the fussy cut banners added even more interesting details.
I hope you like my take on the sketch! Thanks so much for stopping by today and don’t forget to share what you create with this sketch as your starting point using the hashtag #EllesStudio on Instagram, or in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group!
