Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 3.5.12

Lens Love | Mary Rogers

[BITTERSWEET] BIT-D993 Starter Kit [ROMANI] GYP-D831 Flourishes [PHRESH & PHUNKY] PRE-D365 Elements [PERHAPS] PER-D812 Textures [SUBLIME] ACS-D228 Textures.

This week’s sketch is based on this layout by BasicGrey digital design team member Mary Rogers.  The perfect layout for focusing on a single photo and the story behind it.

Mary notes, “My husband captured this shot for me and I loved it.  It is really representive of where we are right now with our photography.   This lens has made such a huge difference in our ability to capture our son’s sports shots, something I know we will be thankful for over the years.  I decided to keep the focus on the photo + the story.  The Bittersweet collection worked perfectly with my color hue, I added additional papers for depth and some textures through my brush work.  The little calendar on the bottem of the layout was the perfect touch.”

This week’s sketch uses a single image but feel free to use it as simply a starting point for your project!  Perhaps you have several photos you can stack together to form one large image?  You could even use it as one page of a single page layout.  The choices are all yours!

We’d love to see what you create from this week’s sketch. Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one commenter at random to receive a collection pack of your choice. Comment must be posted by March 11, 2012 at 11:59p MST.

    • Michelle, all you have to do is create a layout based on this sketch, leave a comment with a link to your project and you will be entered to win. Have fun

  1. Are you kidding me? A “sketch” with one photo and a mat? I’m all for simple with clean lines but no one needs a sketch to create this layout.

    • Hi, Ariel!

      We try to appeal to all different types of crafters so while some might find a more clean and linear style “easy” others who often create using many layers and products benefit from more stream lined sketches.

  2. I`m not a c&s girl but still I like the sketch a lot, there is always a place for adding layers etc, I will play for shure!

  3. I agree with this traditional theme of karnevalskostueme, as it reminds the reflection of royal aristocratic European culture. The definition of this special costume is gradually modified with the changing fashion mood of 21st century. Tradition and modernity are combined together and taken a new form of aristocracy.
