Good morning everyone! Brenda here with yet another sketch. I was excited upon seeing Teresa Collins' "Hello My Name Is" because there are numerous elements that would lend themselves well to Project Life spreads, but what excited me even more was realizing how versatile those elements were. It inspired me to create a sketch that could put some of those 3x4 journal cards to use on a layout.
I have two variations of the sketch today. The first is with a traditional landscape 4x6 photo.
This was initially the direction I was going to go with my layout, but over the weekend my husband and I went on a quick trip to the mountains above our city and I got a great panorama photo that I wanted to scrap. So I modified the sketch a little to include a longer photo.
Here is my layout:
I used Photoshop Elements to size my photo and printed it out on 8.5"x11" photo paper and trimmed down to size. If you are without photo editing software, you could use a free program such as Picasa to make a landscape 8x10 collage and use the top 2/5ths to insert your panorama and then print at your favorite photo lab. If you need more help figuring out how to print one, feel free to ask in the comments here or on the Scrapbook Steals Facebook page.
I just had to use some of the 3x4 cards so I used one title card and one with journaling space. Also, there's this perfect sheet of patterned paper full of polaroid frames that I cut up to use in place of the journal spots. I had extra photos that I wanted to include so I thought these frames would be the perfect way to feature them.
I finished off the layout with some of the chipboard stickers, sequins, and enamel dots from this collection. There are so many cute, usable embellishments in this line!
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creations this week!
