Hello! It’s Junell on the blog today and it’s Sketch Day! I’ve never met a scrapbooker who doesn’t like a good sketch! And this one is really unique. Let’s take a look!
Here’s my take on the sketch:
I pretty much stayed true to the original sketch. When I first saw the sketch, I immediately thought that the large center area would be perfect for some longer journaling, storytelling, or a recipe in my case. I just happened to have two pictures of my favorite soup recipe which is perfect for fall and the colors of this month’s kit coordinate so well! They would go on both sides of the recipe.
I love that the title is split between the left and right sides of the layout. This allowed me to have a longer title and the Lizzy Alphabet Stamp was the perfect size to fill the space I had for my title. I also used some of the scallops on the stamp set to add weight to the bottom of the page and to create our visual triangle.
Once I had the layout designed, I used the Canva app to get my recipe to fit the exact space I had reserved. I wanted it to fit around the corners of the embellishments and photos. It was super easy to do! I took a photo of my layout and uploaded it to the app, then I was able to add text on top in exactly the space I wanted. I then deleted the photo of the layout underneath the text, saved the journaling as a photo, and then printed it onto clear sticker paper making sure my size was correct. I printed it out, then cut it into four sections to make it easier to apply to the layout, since it would have been difficult to apply a huge sticker without getting bubbles underneath. I love how it turned out!
Thank you for reading! I cannot wait to see what you create with this sketch! Share your project with us in the Facebook Group!
