Hello Lovelies! Candace here back with you today sharing a fun layout using the July sketch. I am a pretty simple scrapper. I like lots of white space with intentional embellishments. The July sketch is right up my alley with lots of space to add journaling and fun, simple embellishments. Here is another look at the sketch incase you missed it.
Here is at my final layout and my take on the sketch.
I started my layout with a smooth piece of 8.5 x 11 card stock. I printed out my photo at 4×6 and backed it with patterned paper to create a border, or frame, like in the sketch. I placed the photo stack on the top third of the layout to create space on the bottom for a large title and simple journaling.
For the title I used the “adventure” acrylic and the “together” chipboard. I adhered the acrylic piece with three simple hand stitches. By using the hand stitched detail it not only adheres the acrylic to the paper but adds special detail and dimension. Instead of doing traditional journaling I thought it would be fun to use the chipboard phrases under the title. I love the fun sentiments on the chipboard and a new take on telling our family story. Under the chipboard phrases I used the ADORABLE letter stickers to add the location of the photo along with the year.
To mimic the small embellishments in the sketch I added a few of navy enamel hearts. I created a visual triangle with the hearts and finished off the spread with the sun chipboard. The final spread, though simple is a perfect reflection of our day and my feelings about it.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! You can pick up the goodies that I used on this layout in the shop here
Have a beautiful day!
