Time for another Sketch Reveal

The new Scraps-n-Such Sketch Design team is really flowing with the mojo and cranking out some gorgeous layouts! They knocked this sketch out with their creative elements and design styles. I'm so glad this isn't a competition because I don't think I could pick just one! Each layout is uniquely created and really shows the versatility of sketches. Remember that's one of the best parts of using sketches, you can alter the original design to fit your page, sometimes that means changing a couple of elements and other times it means turning the sketch a different angle. All that really matters is that you have fun and experiment with different techniques and ideas and of course, SCRAP!

The Sketch for the Week

Gina's Example
I love how she used a scalloped heart instead of a circle for the background. By using the black, red, and white colors she was able to really make the pictures pop off the page! The black flowers help to anchor the layout whle adding extra texture.

Pat's Example
By using a solid background along with the busy b&w swirly paper she really got her pictures to stand out. The rounded photo corners add a soft touch and the round embellishments keep you circling the page.

Michele's Example
The glittery swirls in background paper really add a magical touch to this beautiful Romanesque wedding layout with the red and pink flowers and title adding just a hint of color.

Heather's Example
The colors she chose for this layout really add a touch of whimsy especially with the scalloped edges around the circle. The yellow flowers draw your eyes from picture to picture.

Bethy's Example
With the circle off center she was able to extend her photos so that the main subject was framed just outside the scalloped edge. Then she used strips of journaling that pull your eyes back towards the other photos. The soft pink glittery flowers add an extra girly touch.

My Example
In order to make my title fit, I had to add an extra picture and turn the words sideways. To not overpower the title I used chipboard and rub-ons along with a cute fish stamp. The fishing stickers added an authentic touch to the page. Mimicing the astrological sign for Pisces, the two fish stamped in opposite directions add a personal touch, since he is a Pisces. Maybe that's why he likes fishing so much!

I hope you enjoyed this week's designs from the Sketch Design Team! Be sure to check back next tuesday for a brand new sketch and more fabulous examples. Happy Scrapping!
