I enjoy working with sketches because they always give you a great starting point. Sometimes I choose to follow them almost exactly, but you will see that this time I took some liberties with the original design and I love the way my layout turned out! Here is the sketch provided by the very talented Lynn Shokoples:
I started with Honeycomb 105 as the base for the layout. The 2 strips creating the upper and lower borders on the sketch were converted on my layout to one strip of green from Urban Oasis 101 with a punched edge. I also changed the sketch by using a much larger photo than the sketch suggests - this is one of the pictures from my daughter's senior photo shoot!
The title was created with pieces I had left over from the February Club Q kit but don't worry! The good news is that there are similar elements you can use from the Chiffon Collection: Chiffon 500 and Chiffon Strip. I cut them out and matted them with the green before mounting them on patterned paper from the Earth Wind and Fire Collection (EWF-109).
The sketch challenge closes at 11:55pm PST tonight so you still have today to get your entry in! You can check out all the details HERE.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
