Sketch Solutions 5

I used one of the bonus sketches in the BPC Sketch Solutions workshop as inspiration for today's layouts. The sketch had space for one 6x5 photo. This first layout follows the sketch fairly closely, with the addition of an embellishment cluster on the top left.

For my second layout, I mirrored the sketch design and used two 4x6 photos in place of the one larger photo and also included an embellishment cluster along the top edge.

I altered the photo size on the digital template of this sketch to fit a screenshot I wanted to include with the story. I also added an extra (white) background paper to help set off the journaling and photo.

The first layout uses a photo from 2010 and will go in our Family & Friends Library of Memories album. These last two layouts are stories and photos from this year and will go in our 2014 chronological album.

You are doing so well on the digi :) Love those bright colours and that last photo made me smile when I saw it - remember spotting you in the video too.

Well, you are certainly making lots of progress with those sketches. I've enjoyed your last few posts and the pages shown there. You are an inspiration for me as I prepare to jump into my Sketchbook class as little late.

I love the assortment of embellishment, color and choice of photos on the second one. But the last one is just so FUN!!!
Great colors, photo and feeling there.
