Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 2.11.13

This week’s sketch features three elongated photos.  Or does it?  What if you used a larger photo or paper and cut into three smaller pieces?

BG scrapbook designer Kelly Noel used this week’s sketch to create this fabulous layout utilizing our new Hey You and Hey Boy collections.  Kelly says, “I have fallen completely in love with these lines! As a boy mama, I’m loving the colors and embellishments so much! I also adore how well these lines go together. I mixed them here using the sketch as my inspiration for the design. The thing I love about sketches is that they can be interpreted in so many different ways. I was inspired by the three strips that were intended to be photos, but instead used strips of patterned paper and a 4×6 photo across the strips. The large flower element on the left is replaced on my page by the adorable pocket and journaling tucked inside. I mimicked the circles on the sketch by using a mix of buttons and brads along the bottom edge of my photo and the title placement on my layout is similar to the sketch.”
