Happy Saturday everyone! Today I’m sharing a layout sketch I created for the Victoria Marie Facebook Group this month. I posted this sketch within the group last week Monday and am enjoying being a part this fun creative community. Here’s the sketch I created for one of this month’s challenges.
And here’s my layout with a few close ups. I used Dear Lizzy’s Serendipity collection and mixed in some of my favorite little including Dear Lizzy wood veneers, SpiegelMom Scraps white doilies, a white medium shipping tag, sequins and cork embellishments!
I think the fastest way for me to scrapbook these days is to use 3-4 patterned papers, 1-2 photos and a few embellishments. I choose 1 or 2 papers to use the most of and the others to compliment them. Sometimes I choose those supporting papers to add contrast and sometimes I want them to be subtle. In this case I wanted to use the bold floral as a photo matte because it was just too bold for me to use as a background this time. I also used a navy blue print for the othe photo matte to add a little more contrast.
Above you can see a closeup of my journaling section. I used those edge stripes from the 12×12 Dear Lizzy Serendipty papers to create this little journaling area. I also wanted to pull a little more of the aqua color across the layout so I added some washi tape from my stash & Elle’s Studio ephemera, along with a Chunky Cork Star for a little texture. I really love how it balances the layout out more!!
