Sketch Thursday

Hey hey everyone! Maggie here with my take on a sketch based off of a layout by Allie Stewart! Yay! Working from a sketch is one of my favorite ways to jump start my creativity…it’s like half the work is already done for  you!

Allie’s layout is so awesome, I stuck with the same basic design…the grid is really right up my alley.

For my page I chose a few everyday photos of my daughter studying and printed 2 of them in the Portrait orientation and 2 of them in Landscape. I arranged them on my page and added my title “Little Moments” right smack dab in the middle.

To mimic the lines on both the top and bottom of Allie’s page, I added strips of paper under my photos and some hand-drawn lines above the photos.

I used a regular old hole punch to create a few “bubbles” to add around my title, and a few stamps colored in with watercolors finish out this page. Thanks so much for taking a look!
