Sketch Day with Nathalie Leonelli

Hello, it’s Nathalie and I am happy to be here for sketch day! I will share with you my latest traveler’s notebook spread based on an adaptation of this great 12 x 12 inch layout sketch: 

My project documents the (few) books I read in 2021 and features several items from the January 2022 kit and add-ons including my new favorites, the Large Heart Jane alphabet and number stamps.

Supplies | January 2022 Kit, Love Notes Die Cuts, Heart and Star Chipboard Stickers, Love Chipboard Stickers, Love You Paper Stack, Warm Solids Paper Stack, Large Heart Jane Alphabet Stamp, Large Heart Jane Number Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die, Large Jane Number Metal Die

I made collages of the book covers that I read and printed them as two photos. Their placement is similar to the sketch, but in order to work in a notebook format, I rotated the sides of the sketch, title and border  to become the top and bottom.

The background papers are from the new Love You Paper Stack and I selected them because they match most of the colors in the book covers. I added a few layers with vellum from my stash, a tag from the January 2022 Kit and a die-cut from the Love Notes Die Cuts.

I think that the “piece de resistance” is the title, stamped on plain cardstock from the Warm Solids Paper Stack and cut using the matching metal dies. 

I hope that you will feel inspired to grab your supplies and create something based on this sketch, in any format, and that you will share it with us in our Facebook Group or on Instagram using the #EllesStudio hashtag!
