Saturday Sketch - January

  • Well, it's past midnight in Singapore, so technically it's Sunday. But it's Saturday somewhere, so we're gonna roll with that! :)
  • I'm here to share my first ever layout as DT for Come On Get Crafty - based on this sketch 
Saturday Sketch - January 2014

  • If you're thinking - but that doesn't look like the sketch! Okay - let me walk you through it. :D
  • I translated the sketch into a 8.5 x 11 layout - so the squares are rectangles on my layout. Instead of circles, I stitched and misted three sun rays and switched their placements a teeny bit. I also didn't mat my photos but I misted the background and stamped a little bit, and instead of small typed or handwritten journaling as indicated by the lines on the sketch - I decided to use up my thickers and that action supersized my journaling maybe 3 fold.

  • Well, I guess what I'm saying is that - never feel like you have to limit your creativity just because you're working based on a sketch! :) Play! If it's not fun, it's not worth it.
  • Speaking of which, please head on to the COGC blog to check out more layouts from the rest of the girls on the team and also, to link your layouts when you play along for a chance to win gift certificate to the shop! :)
