Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 2.4.13

This week’s sketch from BasicGrey sketch artist Jana Eubank and is the perfect starting point for your next multi-photo project.

BG scrapbook designer Shannon Tidwell used this week’s sketch to document these photos of her husband and daughter.  Shannon says, “I was immediately drawn to the cluster of photos on the sketch, but decided to use that inspiration to cluster a few embellishments.  I used the embellishment cluster to base my title on as well.    I loved the circles borders, and envisioned something with machine stitching. Once I started playing with all the goodies in the True Love Collection I decided to replace the circles with hearts.  Also instead of adding the journaling strips next to the photo I replaced it with a banner. I really got a lot of inspiration from this sketch and was able to come up with a layout all my own!”

Digital designer Kathleen Summers also used this week’s sketch to create a layout along the same color scheme.  Kathleen notes, “I stuck pretty closely to the sketch. It’s a great 3-photo design and I love the balance and the plenty of white space for the eye to rest. It turned out to be the perfect way to document our 18th anniversary!”

Now it’s your turn! 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 comment at random to receive a $10 credit to shop at basicgrey.com. Comment must be posted by February 10, 2013 at 11:59p MST.

If you upload your layout to your blog or online gallery, we hope you’ll also upload it to our BasicGrey flickr pool and note what products you’ve used so that other BG fans can find inspiration from your work easily.
