This month’s sketch is “hot off the Press” as it were. I held my scrapbook Crop today and the subject was “Vertical Page Design” and I made a page (8×8) and this sketch is based on that page.
It’s a multi-photo scrapbook page again and I will write a little more about vertical design in another article.
I will post the picture of the scrapbook page when I have finished it… that’s how hot off the press this is! LOL
UPDATE: HERE is the finished page layout !
HERE is Kerri’s Layout based on the sketch>>
It’s a Colour Combo challenge – the three colours of these buttons I have on my desk.
This is a true sketch! It’s even still in pencil – I haven’t drawn it out in pen! I’ve just photographed my sketch for you here. I actually sketched this one whilst sitting in the hairdresser’s chair last week. I always take a scrapbook magazine and a pad and pencil with me… but I digress!
This is a 4 photo layout and an example of a type of colour blocking. I have even managed to make a scrapbook page from it as an example for you this month!
It’s a digital page (I don’t make many of those!) and I made using the digi kit “Everyday Memories” by Juno Designs.
February’s challenge was inspired by these…
Yep they are crisp packets! But I was inspired by the colour and the flower/starburst graphic on them actually!
So the challenge is to use the blue, pink and yellow on a layout and include a flower, over a starburst or something of that nature!
I am in the process of making a scrapbook about a holiday we took in 2007 to Disneyland Paris. I realise it’s nearly 2010, but I’ll get there eventually!
I just thought I would show you this page because it is a page made using the Sketch from the September Newsletter. I always had these pictures in mind when I thought of the sketch and that’s been for months, if not more than a year! Please note that this is actually the right hand page of a double page layout and the words on the left hand side say “And then it…”
And here is a closeup…
I will show you the whole album when I have finished it!
The November 09 Sketch for the Newsletter is a multi-photo Scrapbook page. One large photo and up to 4 smaller photos (and/or blocks of embellishment). As part of my demo at my crop last weekend I wanted to show that you can easily adapt a scrapbok page sketch into a card sketch with only a little adjustment. I’ve digitally reproduced my hand drawn sketch here (below left) and have morphed it to make a greetings card.
The dark red block which would have been the main photograph on a scrapbook page could easily feature some lovely patterned paper on the card, with maybe a striped or more muted paper behind.
BUT… with respect to pictures… many a greetings card features a picture and you can add them to yours too. Of course many people stamp an image, but you can print an image to use, see this post for free downloadable vintage images and a card example.
So you see the photo element of a scrapbook page is not so disimilar to that of a card either!
I decided to join in with the Basic Grey Challenges Blog this week and so here is my interpretation of the sketch…
It’s an 8×8 scrapbook page. I have noticed that there are mostly cards posted on the challenge blog as examples, but I scrapbooked it. Here is the sketch…
The Red and the Grey papers are Basic Grey, the middle grey paper is from Scarlett’s Letter and the red background paper is from the Blush Collection. And here are a couple of close-ups.
