Hello friends! Today I am here to share with you a fun sketch and the layout that I was inspired to create. I LOVE working with sketches! I love that I can take the time to just play with paper and embellishments and not have to worry about creating a balanced design; all the work is already done!
Using the sketch, the everyday themed papers and embellishments, along with the March kit I created this layout about a recent family hike. I knew I wanted to make a bright, colorful and fun layout, therefore I wanted to keep the base of the layout simple and monochromatic. I used a basic word sentiment paper to act as the base to the main photo stack. To bring color to the photo and make the layout pop I added various papers and cards to back the photo. I love the different angles and patterns this created.
To create the title on layout I combined a card from the March kit along with die cuts and the adorable wood veneer adventure tags. I chose to again vary the angles of the cards to create more variety. I love the final look!
For the three blocks on the layout I choose to create blocks of paper, photos and embellishments. I focused similar colors on each block to create a pattern and add a bit of dimension and interest to the blocks.
I had so much fun creating this layout & it came together in a snap using the layout. I can’t wait to see how you use the sketch to create a layout, card or travelers notebook spread! Get super creative, have fun and tag Elle’s Studio!
Have a beautiful day!
