Sketch Support August

It's time for another sketch from Allison Davis and Scrapbook Generation! The sketch for August is up at Allison Davis' blog. You can find it here.

Here's what I did:


I kept to one-page, but I added two photos. The general orientation worked still, but I divided the main photo spot to take two photos, and I added one photo to the photo grouping to the lower right. For some reason I wanted the main color throughout to be orange--probably because of the blue in the photos--and the striped paper I used had some greenish-aqua, so I made that an accent color.

And the details:


The title I kept pretty similar to the original sketch, but I added an embellishment cluster next to it.


One photo I adhered with dimensional stickers--I like to lift at least one item in a cluster to add more interest to the page. I also added another embellishment cluster to the right to complete the visual triangle.


The journaling I kept in strips and inked with grey. It took me a while to figure out how to make it fit in the space I had!

Thank you for checking out my page! I hope it gives you some ideas to adapt the sketch for your own.

I love this!!! I love the color palette too. Now, can you talk my hubby into go to the Ren. Fest?? Every year, I want to go. We have never been. Can't talk him into it. He prefers, so he thinks, the State Fair. Hopefully the weather will be good on Labor Day has that is when we are going (his birthday).

Your color selection really makes me think of fall. Like how your 3 smaller photos are matted with the one popped for dimension.
