Today I have a layout to share with you based on this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy!:
Using the Trailblazer Daily Diary kit, I created this page sticking pretty close to the design of the sketch. When using sketches you don't have to make your project look exactly the same, but instead can use the sketch for a jumping off point, a source of inspiration instead of making and exact replica of the sketch in your project. For some people, though, copying a sketch really closely is very helpful.
One thing that I liked about using the Daily Diary kit this month is that there are lots of stickers and lots of alphas to choose from. In particular, I used a lot of these label stickers- not for journaling but as a design element on my page, both in the main focal area of the layout but also near the bottom.
I loved the look of the swirly twine on the sketch! I did kind of the same thing on my page, adhering it with liquid glue under my photo and also with some staples. I used foam adhesive on the photograph to help it stand out above the string.
For the "smile" cut I actually used one of the Jillibean Soup cards. I just cut out the word and discarded the rest of the frame. I liked the look of having a diecut title without having to actually do any work on my diecut machine ☺
I finished off my page with these cute star stickers and some enamel dots.
I hope you've enjoyed my post today.
