I created this sketch while playing around in Photoshop:
I started with a square format—perfect for a layout or a card.
Here is what I came up with:
Instead of going with a square card, I went with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card. I covered the Bonfire patterned paper from the Apple Cider collection. I ran strips from 6 x 8" Paper Pack and Hayride along the top, and then I layered Snap Caps in the middle and added a patterned paper heart, a Designer Brad, and a couple of Buttons in place of the photos. I added a scalloped strip of Dictation patterned paper from the 9 to 5 collection and a white twill ribbon bow to the center.
I finished the card with some Snap Cap sentiments and a few pearls in place of the journaling.
Nicole used the sketch as a guide but added her own unique touches to make the layout work for her. Don't you just love it?!
I hope you enjoyed today's sketch and the samples Nicole and I created using it. If you get a chance to play along, don't forget to post your project in the OA Flickr group. We can't wait to see how you interpret it.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
