Sketch Thursday 02.16.12

Welcome back to Sketch Thursday! Today we have a clean and simple sketch inspired by Rahel‘s Fun layout from January’s gallery.

Lots of white space + fun elements… what’s not to love, right?  Meghann and Valerie played along with the sketch this week and look at the beautiful layouts they created:
Meghan said: I really loved this sketch and I was intrigued by the simpleness of it, as well as the diagonal line of embellishments. I’m not a very simple scrapbooker, so I put my own spin on it by adding much more but using more tonal elements, such as the teal alpha stickers in my extra-long title and the teal confetti against the teal background. This is a great way to add more without it looking like too much more!
Valerie said: I love how Rahel uses white space and small strips of paper and tried to incorporate both elements into my page. I moved the strips to the top and bottom and replaced the photo with a strip across the page.
