Hi there, OA fans! Alex here today with another Thursday sketch.
This time, I wanted to share a design I often go back to when I want to use both vertical and horizontal photos on my layout. First time I used it was 5 years ago when I started to scrap. I don't remember if it was inspired by someone else's sketch or layout, but I know that I love it. I have at least three layouts based on this simple design :-)
And here is my layout:
I have played with the gorgeous Daily Flash Milk Money collection. Since I have the colorful Science paper as my background, I chose to keep the area around my photos pretty clean. Instead of adding more patterns, I drew the rectangles that were not photos on the piece of Lunch paper.
I cut the words laugh, play and learn from the Spelling paper. And don't you just love that alphabet washi? I know I do!
I sent this sketch to Mandy and I knew that she would rock it! Here is her awesome take:
And a close-up:
This is what Mandy had to say about her layout:
"When I saw Alex's sketch I knew it would totally work for me a simple grid design is a go to design for me. I did add some layers to make it a little more me. When I started creating I knew I wanted to try to use this photo of Mav I've had on my desk for ages.When I was rummaging through product I came across the new Daily Flash All Boy line and knew instantly it would be perfect to use. I love all those fun squares and colors from this line. Really love how this layout turned out. Thanks Alex for sending me this fabulous sketch challenge!"
Thank you SO much, Mandy!
I hope we have inspired you to pull out your OA goodies and play along with us! If you do, please upload your work to OA's Flickr gallery. We would love to see it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
