Hi everybody! It's Lynn here and I wanted to share with you my project I created using the June sketch. Now I am the first to say that I LOVE a good sketch. Whether you decide to follow a sketch exactly or use it as a starting point sketches can be invaluable time savers and goodness knows I need all the help I can get in that department! LOL!
For this layout about my son Brandon I used my favorite Collage Press collection Knave of Hearts. I kept my design pretty close to the sketch which helped me create this layout in no time at all.
My little guy is definitely a mama's boy and I feel so very lucky to be able to call myself his mama and that he loves me the way he does. I used the "lucky" die cut for my main title popped up with some dimensional adhesive and placed on a journaling die cut. I slightly overlapped the bottom of my main photo to help ground all of the elements.
Since my layout is about love I decided to add a couple of hearts. I punched these hearts from a few different patterned papers, zig zag stitched down the centers, and folded up the edges for a bit of dimension.
We'd love for you to play along with our sketch contest as well. To enter simply create a layout using the sketch posted here.
