Hello everyone. It's Ronda here today bringing you the September Sketch Challenge. We are going for the top on this month's sketch, the top of the page that is. I love this sketch for it gives you ample opportunity to use your stash of My Mind's Eye patterned paper along with some fun decorative tape. By placing the photo and embellishments down the left side, we keep the layout balanced. The title & subtitles stretche across the page echoing the strips of patterned paper & decorative tapes. Remember the photo can be multiple photos in a strip down that left side.
Supplies: Cut & Paste: Charm - Sweet: 'Spin' Paper, 'Treat' Paper, Bits & Pieces Stickers; Charm-Smile: Decorative Brads, Enamel Dots; Charm-Hey You: 'Trends' Paper; Charm- Carefree: 'Relaxed' Paper, Chipboard Sticker, Label Stickers; Charm- Decorative Tape; Decorative Tape: Mint & Grey; Misc: Maya Road Mists, Black Pen, Jillibean Soup Alphabeans.
Every time I visit my husband in Doha, I have to step out on the balcony and take in the view. I just love taking my tea & breakfast out there to look at the downtown buildings and soak in city life. On my layout I wanted the one photo as my focal point. I split the top with patterned paper and decorative tape. The torn edge gives added texture to the layout.
I sprinkled mists on the background and let some of the yellow mist drip down the page. I love layering the chipboard hearts, brad tags, and an arrow sticker around the photo. The vellum clouds added the perfect touch to my photos.
I created a faux stitching along the patterned paper using a black pen. The enamel dots add in pops of color all around the photo. I snuggled the title & journaling right up against the photo.

The great thing about sketches is that they can be used for a multitude of projects including cards. I used the same sketch and leftover paper to create this simply cute card. The layers of patterned paper and decorative tape look great at the top with the stamped frame acting as the focal point.
