I loved this sketch because it made me use two photos on the one page. I normally just use one photo on my layouts, so I was thankful for the push out of my comfort zone.
I loved our most of the elements in the sketch were diagonally from each other too. I didnt want to make the layout look to grid like, so I add in some circular embellishments to add more interest and take away that box feeling.
I used a lot of shimmerz on the background to create my mixed media. I wanted the background to just peek out behind the photo.
Of course I add in lots of layers and tucked in bits and pieces. I finished the page of with lots of handstitching.
Be sure to pop over to my You Tube channel and see how this came together.
