We asked Meghann Andrew (username megnard) to join us this week to share her take on our sketches. She has a fun way with embellishments and adding little details that add up to a big impact.
First, let's start with our sketches. Our layout sketch is from Tina Aszmus :
And our card sketch is from Dana Fleckenstein:Meghann couldn't help but see the potential in both of these sketches...so she made TWO projects to share. We always love to see a card sketch used for a layout!
Supplies: Roundabout scrapbook kit + Navy Pier add-on
I was drawn to this sketch because I often only use one photo on my layouts and because I like clusters of embellishments around my photo that create a visual triangle, so this was perfect for me. I began by layering pieces of patterned paper, my photo and tickets cut from the Basic Grey Carte Postale paper to layer up as embellishment. Like Tina, I used the white space in my photo to house the main part of my title, using the awesome Crate Paper letter tiles and added my subtitle above by stamping those awesome alpha stamps. Finally, I added the star embellishments, included arrows to draw attention to my title & finished off with a few drips of mist.
Supplies: Neverland scrapbook kit, Block Party scrapbook kit (polka dot paper only), watercolors, water brush, SC wood veneer birds
