It's Stacey here...bringing you a sketch that is designed to help you use lots of photos - even if they aren't your favorites!
For me, the winter holidays are a source of wonderful memories but busy, indoor (so kind of dark!) photos. The inspiration for this week's sketch came from my large (digital) pile of not-so-great pictures of past Thanksgivings and Christmases. I would like to use so many of the holiday photos I've taken, but a lot of them are poorly lit and have pretty cluttered backgrounds. So I shrank them down, put them in strips, and added the story - lots of photos on a page with plenty of space for journaling. I really need to do this more often - using several of photos on a page is easy if the photos are smaller, and I can tell the whole story on one layout.
Here's my layout:
And here is the sketch:
I sent Wilna the sketch, and of course, she came up with something fabulous! Here's what she said about the sketch and her take on it:
