Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events.

Sketch Solutions 3

Today I'm sharing three more layouts created from a sketch in the BPC Sketch Solutions workshop. I didn't follow the sketch exactly in any of my layouts - the sketch called for one 5x7 photo and two 2x2 photos. In this first layout, I omitted the two smaller photos.



For my second layout, I turned the sketch a half turn and used an embellishment in place of one of the smaller photos. I didn't have a 5x7 photo, so I matted the main photo several times. I also moved the title to the side of the photo (rather than underneath it).



I used the digital template for a companion layout to the one I created on the first day of class. This time I added two additional smaller photos.



I'm feeling extremely productive this weekend! I doubt I can keep up this level of productivity throughout the 4-week workshop, but it's definitely FUN to have several days in a row to crank out some layouts! What are you up to this weekend?

I love the matting on that middle page - such a nice effect and a gorgeous photo. Fun to see you do a digi page too. We're packing and moving.... although I just ran a workshop so am sitting down for a bit. Hoping to get some cards done at least today.

I absolutely love all three of these! It's a great sketch. I'm hoping to get to play awhile tomorrow. At least me being behind, I get to see all the inspiration beforehand! Hope your weekend is going well.

This really does look like a great class. I spotted another version of that top sketch on another blog a minute ago and it's fascinating to see the different interpretations. Cool scrapbooking.

I like all three layouts a lot! The colors on the first one draw you right in, and the little photos across the last one work so well to tell the story.

You have been busy! I really like how you've adapted the sketch to suit your needs.

Love that second layout especially - great colors and I like there being more variety in the paper choices.
Admitting to being a big jealous of all you're getting done!
