More Scrapbook Magazine layouts to share with you today.
I'm a big fan of sketches and have talked about it before. I very often grab a Page Maps sketch before I even pick up a piece of paper when I want to move things along more quickly. So the idea of creating a sketch and then designing two quite different pages from it to show how versatile they can be, was a lot of fun.
I went to a design that is similar to a few pages I have made recently. It's great for a stand alone photo or a collection of smaller, wallet-sized photos on a die-cut background which is a combination that I love.
So, first came the sketch (yes, I'm very bad at drawing these things!)
And then came the layouts.
This first one features R's incredible Cosmopolitan. I try these wherever I can when I'm out but his are by far the best I've tasted! They are delicious and so I thought that it deserved a layout of its own. These MME papers were a delight to use and were such a gorgeous combination of colours and shades - loved using them. The cocktail glass rub ons are years old and it was so good to finally use them! I have a whole sheet of similar images that I really must find a use for.
And then I flipped the sketch and used 2x3 photos to highlight some details of our Easter decorations. Something very bright and pink and featuring a banner rather than paper strips.
Sketches are whatever you want them to be and are such an excellent way to start your pages.
Do you use them often? It would be great if you could share your sources - always on the lookout for new places to get inspiration.
