SUMMER DAYS - Scrapbook Nerd
This week the Scrapbook Nerd DT has been working with sketches. I chose to create a multi picture layout all about the girls love for our outdoor pool. The sketch was the perfect starting point for this page.
My choice was to stay close to the sketch with a few modifications. First, i added some mixed media to the background using Vicki Boutin's watercolor marker onto Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.
Once the mixed media dried, i used papers from the Kaisercraft Paisley Days collection to create the triangular paper strips at the edges of the page. In this case, i chose to move them around so that they guide your eye to the top of the page.
I chose to replace some of the pictures with a cut file from Handipaper which was backed with papers from the collection, and then used the some of the ephemera to complete the clusters just like in the sketch.
To finish the page, i used the larger ephemera pieces to create the floral cluster at the bottom of the paper strip, then added a title to the page using chipboard stickers from a 1Canoe2 collection, and mini Alphas from the Joyful Day collection from Pinkfresh Studio. Here is the final layout:
This page came together rather quickly as the sketch was a great starting point. I hope you stop by the Scrapbook Nerd Friends page to check the sketch and more inspiration from the DT. As always let me know if you have questions on how this came together.
