During the month of June, I am challenging myself to join the Best of 30 Days of Sketches series with Christy’s Beautiful Life. If you would like to join, I will add a link at the end of this post. For day two, I am sharing a scrapbook page I created for our Disney Album using the sketch created by Suzanna Lee.
This triangular design was a bit outside my comfort zone, but I challenged myself to use it. Not only did I need to figure out how to create the triangles, but I also had to pare them down to a smaller album size.
In my video, I show how to cut the larger triangle, but I cheated when creating the others. Instead of cutting triangles, I cut strips ofo paper and layered them under the photo. It saved me from having to figure out the angles and made the layout go together a lot quicker.
My fondest memory was of the gardens in Epcot so I chose to add some flowers to the page. These were cut from white cardstock using a wildflower die set, then shaded with distress oxide inks using my favorite mini blenders. I kept the colors to a minimum and left them mostly white so that they stood out on the bright pattern papers.
In the sketch, the title is placed on the right side overlapping the photos. I chose to add mine to the lower right corner as an anchor for the design. When you scale down a sketch, you often have to make changes to the layout to balance the arrangement.
On this page, I wanted the pattern to show behind my journaling, but, since I never handwrite my text, I printed it onto clear sticker paper. This is an easy way to add typed text to your page if you can’t (or forget) to run it through the printer.
In my process video, I share how to scaled-down the sketch to a smaller size and give you a few tips for creating those lovely flowers.
You can view the playlist of all the participants and join the challenge to see the sketches in the 30 Days Facebook Group. These challenges are a great way to catch up on some scrapbooking and use up those supplies you have been collecting.
I hope this project inspired you to try something new and give this sketch challenge a try. If you have any questions about the project or the supplies I used, please feel free to leave me a comment below.
