And a few thoughts on how Erin interpreted the sketches:
The card sketch was so much fun to work with! The
four "homes" for products were easy to fill with embellishments and a
sentiment (on the card), and it translated easily to a layout sketch. I
started out with my journaling, which I adapted from a Cathy
Z. digital template. I found a great photo of my son, and used various
embellishments for the open spaces.
The layout sketch was a definite stretch for me. I am usually linear and "orderly", and this sketch is v-e-r-y random and scattered (a look I usually can't pull off!). But I was able to create a layout I love by reducing the size of the layout to 8x8, and working with fewer embellishments.
Wow...so many great things happening on Erin's projects! Most of all, we love that she was so inspired by both the kits & sketches, that she turned in 4 projects...thank you so much for joining us this week, Erin!! You can see more inspiration from her in her SC Gallery, and on her blog. Erin is also active in the Twitter community: @erintaylor718
