Guest designer for My Little Sketch Book ~ June 20th
Hello, again! Hope you are having a great weekend and that you got to celebrate those dads!
I am so honored to be guest designing this week for Liz Qualman's My Little Sketch Book. Thank you, Liz, for having me once again. Liz is one of my all time favorite sketch designers. Her work is always so dependable and works so well with my usual style.
Here is Liz's sketch this time. Now, I will admit that this one was more challenging for me because I wanted to interpret it literally. I had decided to scrap some photos of my Dad since today is Father's Day. And the horizontal lines made me think of Old Glory. So I looked for some red, white and blue in my paper collection and came up with some older Basic Grey Boxer that I had bought last year. Underneath I used some navy Bazill cardstock and a fab die cut paper by Creative Imaginations that I had gotten and set aside for my Dad's album. Measuring everything took some time .. I am more of an assymetrical kind of gal, so I had to focus on keeping everything straight .. which is so against my nature but is perfect for this layout!
I used my Cricut to cut the frames for my photos (Sentimentals,) the stars (Wild Card) and the title (Stand and Salute.) Then I added in an old US Navy dimensional sticker for my circular element layered on a scalloped edge circle (Winter Woodlands,) some ivory trim to the left side and three buttons at the bottom. Considering that I don't work with these colors very often, I was quite pleased with the way it turned out. And as I worked with the sketch I began to see more and more ways to use it ... and have plans for some profile photos of my daughter.
Hope you get a chance to try it! You'll be glad you did! Be sure to visit Liz's blog and see what the other guest designers have done!
