Using patterned paper from Studio Calico, I created this layout based on Sketchabilities' latest sketch. Now I know it is Summer, and the pictures on this page are from Christmas, but my Christmas 2012 pictures are all I have left to scrap from last year, and I am bound and determined to get them done.
I do not often layer my title on top of patterned paper, and if I do it is on a faint pattern. Following this sketch, I slipped pennants, cut from bold papers, under my pictures, and then layered my title on top. To be honest, I was a little apprehensive at first, not sure if I liked how this looked...but now I love it! The title is written using Thickers from American Crafts and small letter stickers from Glitz.
Like I said, a great sketch to work with - clean and simple which matches my scrapping style, yet still encouraging me to try some new layering techniques and embellishment combinations. Awesome!
I am very happy with how this layout turned out....and that I have one of many 2012 Christmas layouts completed.
