This week, our layout sketch is a 12x12 layout with strips of patterned paper and a 4x6 photo in the center. Our card sketch features a fun starburst element & our Project Life sketch uses a simple banner, photo and journaling. Creative Team member, Aga Malyszek, is joining us this week & sharing her take on our card sketch. Be sure to follow Aga here at SC to see more of her work and keep up with her.
First, let's look at this week's sketches - our 12x12 layout sketch comes from Lilin Fang's Yummy layout:
Our card sketch comes from JJ Bolton's Paper Rays card:
And our Project Life sketch comes from Allison Waken's Spread 5:
Here's Aga's take on our card sketch:
I love using sketches as the starting point or when I need some direction for my cards. I love that I can follow them exactly or just use as an inspiration. This time I followed the card sketch pretty straight forward but I decided to turn it 90 degrees and to change a proportion of the layout. To create my rays I used a watercolour technique using Color Theory ink pads. I added a sentiment from the stamp set that comes with the Bluegrass Farm card kit and to finish it off I used a trio of paper sequins created with sequin dies. The tiny confetti dots are leftovers from the die cuts and I just love using them too!
