Just One Sketch | 2015

I’ve talked before about using a sketch as a jumping off
 point when putting a page together. 
I even took Kirsty‘s excellent class back in 2012. 
Our Texas album has lots of double-page spreads appearing, which I like.
But I also like to ring the changes with a few different designs making an appearance.
 Tweaking the design as I go, so it isn’t blindingly obvious 
to the viewer that all I’ve done is repeat the same few steps.   
A look through my collection of pages torn from magazines like Simple Scrapbooks and Creating Keepsakes saw this design make its way to the top.
Design by Laina Lamb, Creating Keepsakes, May/June 2010.
 A straight scraplift of the original design.
 Flipping the design from top to bottom and adding a large embellishment.
Swapping the text box for a photo and adding a 6×4  journaling card.
Clicking on each photo will enlarge the image.
Sketches ~ yes or no?
A straight scraplift or simply used as a jumping off point?

  1. Beautiful looking pages you have there!

    I don't often use a sketch. Actually, I very rarely use a sketch. But I will re-make old designs from my own pages, which I guess is kind of the same thing?


  2. I like using a sketch because it can take some of the decision making out a little. I can then focus on photos and words rather than exactly where the elements will go.
    Lovely pages as always Ruth.
