Happy Thursday! If you're looking for inspiration to scrapbook this weekend - you've come to the right place! This week's sketch is based on this layout by Design Team member Melissa Mann. The single large photo she used immediately caught my eye and I couldn't wait to try something similar.
Although this week's sketch is very straightforward, feel free to put your own spin on it. Instead of a single large format photo, what about doing a collage of smaller photos - even index prints! - to fill the space?
Because I scrapbook using a 12x12 page format and I used an 8x10 photo, I used a strip of patterned paper along the width of my photo to fill the area in the sketch. I could've printed a larger photo but had this one in my stash waiting to be scrapbooked and just went with it - why make things harder than they need to be? I love that by using the sketch and a handful of Elle's Studio tags this layout came together for me in less than an hour. That NEVER happens!
Elle’s Studio products used : Handmade Layers Date and Place Strips, Vintage Months Flashcards, The Details - Brights Tiny Tags and Fun Striped Tiny Tags.
Other product used : Studio Calico's Paper Moon kit.
