As part of the Pages with Papertrey challenges I'm posting every month, I decided to post a sketch challenge mid-month as well.
I love sketches! I find them a great starting point for a layout. Sometimes I follow the sketch exactly, and other times, I'll change things (the # of photos, the placement of the title, etc.) or turn or flip the sketch. There are so many options with sketches....
For my first, Pages With Papertrey sketch, I decided to revisit a sketch that I used earlier this year. It's this sketch from the Crate Paper blog, posted in April.
Here's the layout that I made for it earlier this year...
I used AC cardstock, Crate Paper patterned paper, my Quickutz Jolly alphabet dies, Papertrey Ink dies (Mat Stack #1, Beautiful Blooms II #2) and My Mind's Eye brads.
And here's the layout I made using this same sketch last week:
As you can see, I used two photos instead of the suggested three and put some patterned paper in the space of the third photo instead.
I used AC (white) and Papertrey (sweet blush) cardstock, Studio Calico & October Afternoon patterned paper, Studio Calico & Lily Bee letter stickers, Papertrey Ink stamps (modern wood mats) & dies (Mat Stack #5, Bloom Builders #3) and My Mind's Eye decorative brads and a Fancy Pants fabric covered brad.
Here are a couple of close ups:
If you'd like to play along with this sketch challenge, just post your layout in this thread on the Papertrey Ink forum.
Thanks for looking!
