It's sketch time again! I am here today to share with you a fun layout with many tiny layers. There are two photos but turn that one larger photo into two smallers ones. There's a large circle underneath the photo which could be patterned paper, paint, ink, etc!
I added lots of little layers, like triangles, arrows, circles, and banners. The important thing about adding little layers is grouping them together, overlapping on occassion.
Remember...you are interpreting the sketch so feel free to rotate the sketch or change out the one photo for multiple photos. Envision the pieces and see how you can make the sketch your own with embellishments, paint, patterned paper, and other wonderful My Mind's Eye products.
Supplies: Jubilee: Tangerine - Adventure 'Be Daring' Paper; Tangerine - Awesome Mixed Bag, Tangerine - Story: Journal Cards; Wildberry - Today: Flair; Wildberry - Life: Mixed Bag, Enamel Dots; Wildberry - Hey You: Rubons; Wildberry - Wonder: Chipboard; Other: Stencil: TCW And So On & Positive, Ranger Ink: Archival Ink, Distress Ink;
I had a lot of fun creating this layout! I started with the big circle on the background. I used a variety of distress inks and archival inks with the stencil. I added another stencil layer over top using black ink. I then layered the patterned paper on the background and placed my photos on top. I cut the background and layered it on the patterned paper to have that pop of woodgrain at the top.
I then began all the small layers on top of the photos. First i placed the "hello" journal card over the top of the photo of my darling grandbaby. I like the layers to touch to ground them.
Repeating elements are also a good design element. I repeated elements like triangles, arrows, circles, and banners. Here you can see the circles overlapping.
I also repeated colors around my page using the "flair" as my inspiration. Black is also grounding so you can see it scattered around my page. I love the big bold title of "1 2 3 Love" around the page. I finished my page with a little journaling around the title!
Okay. Now it's your turn.
