Happy Thursday! It's Jill here, with a sketch that incorporates some basic and bold elements while also leaving room for you to play with whimsical bits and pieces.
Lexi and I had a similar reaction to this sketch: we both reached for the October Afternoon Witch Hazel collection and our Halloween photos. The way that Lexi reinterpreted the grid portion of the layout by using patterned triangles is just spooky brilliant:
Lexi also added a playful touch to her layout in the form of Witch Hazel Designer Brads, which keep company with a few ink splatters. These brads also make an appearance on my layout, framing a journaling block.
I honed in on the center of the layout, using black cardstock as a foundation for the layout so that the colors would really stand out. I pieced together a grid from Witch Hazel patterned paper, items in the Miscellany pack, a page from a Here and Now Chapter, and postcards, and then ran strips of mesh washi tape (which you may have noticed that Lexi also used) vertically down the columns, leaving some squares off while I added the tape. I substituted a journaling block for the extra photos on the sketch, and framed it with brads, stickers, and chipboard pieces.
Both Lexi and I drew from certain basic aspects of the sketch, but we also welcomed the chance to adapt the sketch to fit our own styles. We'd love to see how you do this! Be sure to share your creations in the October Afternoon Flickr gallery.
