I love to use sketches for my layouts, or at least get inspiration from them if I'm stuck. Today I'm sharing a layout using the My Scraps & More Sketch #93 created by Audrey Yeager. I love her work! Here's a look at the sketch:
And here's my take on it showing my sweet kids sitting on a caterpillar at the Houston Butterfly Center earlier this year. We had so much fun!
I mostly used the BasicGrey Vivienne collection. Everything about this collection makes me happy: the colors, the patterns, the ephemera, the adorable chipboard circle alphas -- all of it! You may recognize the collection from my updated blog header. :) And I know I'll be using this a lot more, including some cards soon!
I stuck pretty close to the sketch, starting with the chevron patterned paper that I fussycut into the pinking pattern. I also sewed along the pattern to highlight the chevrons, which you can see below along with a journaling spot and some flower embellishments.
For the photo area, I also messy-sewed along the side to create some additional interest and added a couple of sequins.
Finally, I used the circle chipboard alphas to create my title, "Two Peas". This is a play on words for me because their names both start with the letter "P". I almost used "Two Ps", but it wasn't going to work for the layout.
Do you like to use sketches, and what is your favorite way to use them?
Thanks for visiting, and I'd love to read your comments! Stay warm with some hot chocolate today, my friends!
