In 2013, I did a lot of sketches - a lot! And I love making sketches. I'm sure to make plenty this year, too. I thought it might be fun though to take one sketch and use it for several different layouts.
So here is a sketch I created for the 3 photo layout above:
I'll be using this sketch at least 3 more times over the next few weeks. I already have my next layout done! It is very easy to use and alter.
For the layout above, my photos are 3" x 4" and I chose to mat them to give them a little more weight on the page. The bottom border was something I found after I did the sketch. It is from a piece of Fancy Pants designer paper that I'd saved because I like the saying about finding comfort at home. That is so true and so relevant to the subject. The layout contains photos I took a few months ago when I had a cold. My husband just got over a cold at Christmas and these are the things we use to make ourselves feel better- hot water with honey and lemon (neither of us like hot tea), Nyquil for sleeping, Listerine and homemade chicken soup.
I can't promise these will make you feel better but they sure work for us. Oh, and lots and lots of sympathy!
For the homey page, I used some Cosmo Cricket papers, a lace trim and a pleated trim. The band on the bottom had some flourishes so I stamped a couple in other places on the layout to match. And of course I can't do a page anymore without wood veneer.
Here's the video introducing the series, the sketch and going through the process for this one. It was a pretty fast page:
