This week, our layout sketch is a 12x12 layout with one small photo and a grid of patterned papers. Our card sketch features a repeated sentiment and banner and our Project Life sketch uses a banner for a caption and journaling. Creative Team member, Marcy Penner, is joining us this week & sharing her take on our Project Life sketch! Be sure to follow Marcy 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 sketch comes from Kelly Noel's Oh You! layout:
Our card sketch comes from Robyn Werlich's Happy Something! card:
And our Project Life sketch comes from Geralyn Sy's Yokohama spread:
And here's Marcy's take on our layout sketch:
I love sketches when I'm in a slump or just stuck for an idea. They're a great jumping off point for me. I particularly loved this sketch because it featured a grid design. I'm a BIG fan of grids. They just are exceptional at pulling a page together.
I knew I wanted to re-create the square grid from Kelly's layout on an 8.5x11 page so I moved it to the bottom and left the top empty. I followed the sketch and didn't change too much of if. Simple and classic. A couple of alterations included having my photo take up one of the squares and moving the tag to the upper right and used it to house my title and hide my journaling. A little bit of embellishing on some of the squares wrapped it all up.
