Hi everyone, Mou here with today's sketch and a layout!
There are several different components in a layout. I feel that the photo is the most important factor deserving the focal point of the page. In my sketch, I put the photo front and center with a few rectangles to keep moving your eyes around the layout. And here's my take on this sketch.
On this layout, I used papers, stamp, and designer brads from the Saturday Mornings collection along with a little bit of a darling older collection called Cakewalk and Daily Flash elements. Yes, I save all savable scraps of my October Afternoon papers because most of the collections work superbly together! For my background, I chose Hashbrowns 12 x 12 paper from Saturday Mornings in keeping with the theme of my layout about my little one starting solids. The paper instantly added a colorful and playful touch to a milestone layout. As the backdrop for my matted photo I used the TV listing side of Bacon paper as we often watch TV during feedings. I stamped a cardstock using the Clouds stamp and used it to mat my photo as another fun touch. I added strips and scraps of Orange Juice paper and some Designer brads to embellish. I finished the layout using Daily Flash alpha Strawberry Ice Cream Shop Front, Photo Booth Flash chip, and Apple Cider pop Drops.
Here's a close-up of my layout.
Hope you find my sketch useful for one of your upcoming layouts! Thanks for stopping by :)
