Hi Friends! Today is Sketch Day and it’s Katarina here with you again bringing some more inspiration. Today I am sharing a sketch-based layout using the October 2021 kit and add-ons. Let’s see what I created!
This is the sketch I used today:
And this is my layout:
Supplies | October 2021 Kit, October Labels, Home Sweet Home Cardstock Stickers, Gold Puffy Heart and Star Stickers, White Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Autumn Fun Wood Veneer, Warm Solids Paper Stack, Cool Solids Paper Stack, Thankful Paper Stack, Autumn Tab Stamp, Small Tile Alphabet Stamp
This sketch was so fun to work with! I just loved the composition and followed it almost 100%. I used the beautiful wood grain paper from the Thankful Paper Stack at the top and bottom of my page. I used my scalloped border punch for the top part. As I really love layering, instead of putting the three vertical columns next to each other, I brought them closer and layered them. I used both the Cool and Warm Solid Paper Stacks as well as the Thankful Paper Stack for this.
In the sketch, the title is a combination of regular and tile letters and this inspired me to use the Small Tile Alphabet Stamp in my title. After stamping and cutting them out, I combined them with the Autumn Fun Wood Veneer, overlapping the patterned papers to keep everything compact.
I placed my photo on top of the three paper stripes, matted with a beautiful mustard yellow journaling tag from the October Kit and added one of the October Labels. Inspired by the sketch, I also put three labels from the Home Sweet Home cardstock stickers at the bottom of each stripe. I wanted to create a list of what we enjoy in autumn. I numbered the labels with White Puffy Alphabet Stickers and stamped phrases from the Autumn Tab Stamp. I used the Small Tile Alphabet Stamp again to stamp and cut out “we enjoy.”
In the top right corner of my page I created a little cluster combining the Home Sweet Home Cardstock Stickers and a die cut from the kit. I repeated the falling leaves in two more places on the layout to create movement and balance. As a finishing touch, I added dots from the Gold Puffy Heart and Star Stickers and splatters of black ink to bring some more of the black color that I had in my stamped titles.
Using the sketch was so fun! It was very inspiring and helped me create this simple page in no time. I hope you give it a try too, using the beautiful October 2021 monthly kit and add-ons.
Thanks for stopping by, friends!
