Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing my layout created for the Friday Sketch over at Bella Blvd. This sketch comes courtesy of Becky Fleck and is just divine! *grin*
This is how my layout looks, after I shrunk the sketch down to suit my preferred scrapping size...
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Bella Blvd; alphas - Bella Blvd; other - Bella Blvd: buttons, cardstock stickers, paper pieces, tags; mist; tools - machine stitching, black pen, foam tape.
This sketch was such a fun starting point for creating my layout and I didn't need to change it very much at all. To downsize the sketch to suit my 8.5" x 11" layout style, I minimized the number of elements placed on the right side of the photo. I then used this opportunity to create layers and dimension on top of the square elements.
I also love the little details that can already be found in the Alpha+Bits negative spaces. The stars reminded me of the little bits that float about inside snow globes when you shake them. Adding details to the circle punched paper pieces, also reminded me of these shaken features inside "round" snow globes.
Don't forget to check out what the other designers did with this sketch as well. Lot's of Christmassy creations being put together! Thanks for visiting..x
