Today I'm up on the 3 Birds Studio Blog sharing my take on our August Scrapbook Sketch. The layout turned out much differently than what I had originally planned. Have you ever had that happen to you? Have you ever started out with this "grand idea" and then things just don't turn out the way you imagined? Well, that is exactly what happened to me with that layout. I even started with totally different photos.
As I struggled to try to make my original idea come to life, I realized the photos, papers and colors that I wanted to use just weren't working together. So I "started over" and I searched for a new photo to use on that layout. I put my original photos to the side and decided they would be perfect to use to create a second layout using the August Sketch for inspiration.
When you look at the sketch, you will see that the only real thing that I borrowed was the triangular shaped corners. And even then, I didn't cut true triangles...I fussy cut the roses from the paper and used them.
To fill in the center area, I used a variety of circle stickers from the Nestable Festival Sticker Pad along with some circles that I die cut from the green chevron patterned paper.
I embellished the page with more roses and leaves that I fussy cut from the Nestable Festival Sticker Pad. To give them more dimension, I adhered them to my layout using double sided foam tape. I also used a couple of stickers from the new Sticker Flair Kit. The sentiment that I used as my title goes perfectly with these photos of my niece. She definitely leaves some sparkle on the world around her!
If you are looking for more scrapbook sketch inspiration, make sure to visit the 3 Birds blog today, where you can see my other layout - Pure Joy. Also, my fellow design team members will be sharing how the sketch inspired them this week and next week. If you are a 3 Birds fan, we would love to see how you use the August Scrapbook Sketch to create a project. You can share it on the 3 Birds Facebook page. We will be selecting one of the projects and the designer to feature on our blog and Facebook page in September.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
