Hey everyone, it's Elsie & Laureen here today and we've teamed up for this month's Sketch Saturday! Here are our takes on the sketch, and we hope you're inspired to join us this month.
I don't know about you, but sometimes I could spend hours and hours fussing around with my layouts, especially when every embellishment and paper is so pretty! So working with a sketch is such a brilliant way to streamline my whole process.
When I'm working with a sketch, I usually like to give myself the freedom to switch a few things up, if I need to. The dragonfly was the largest element on this page, but because of it's shape it didn't work as well on the left side of the photo, so I flipped that section of the sketch to make it work for me!
I absolutely love the FJ Essentials Paper Pack, that floral paper is a great paper to fussy-cut. And because it's such a minimal design, it meant that the cluster around my photo really stood out! Which was great because this month's yellow floral is just too gorgeous not to show off!!
Now, if my scrappy-telepathic abilities haven't failed me, Laureen has a really beautiful layout to share with you below... ;)
Hi friends - I hope you are having a GREAT day and that you can squeeze in some crafty time!
Isn't Elsie's layout the most beautiful?! She is the queen of subtle details!
For my layout I really wanted to make it look like the sketch, using frames around my photo, creating a horizontal design at the top with embellishments around.
I started creating my frame out of one of the journaling cards from one of the papers, removing the inside of it and attaching it onto my picture.
Next up I added the "Smile" sentiment with the arrow pointing to the picture from the stamp set - using Staz On ink allows you to stamp directly onto slick surfaces like the picture and it won't smear after you let it dry.
I layered up a whole bunch of papers underneath my picture and added bits of the cut apart sheet in between the layers.
I still had a few of the yellow florals from the beautiful paper left and used them around my horizontal design. My title is from the cut apart sheet as well - but before I cut it out of the sticker sheet I adhered it onto white cardstock to help stabilize the smaller, thin pieces of the "remember" and then used foam squares to pop it up of the page.
Using Black spray mist, I added a few dots here and there and some blue enamel dots from the kit scattered around the design.
We would love to see what you create, so make sure you leave a link to your layouts below or share on the Felicity Jane Subscriber Facebook Group!
Happy scrapping, friends!
