The first layout was featured on the CK Blog a couple of weeks ago. CK asked the MME DT to interpret this sketch from the May/June 2012 issue.
I created a one page layout, using multiple inspiration from both pages of the sketch.
From the right side of the sketch:
- photos (one large horizontal and two smaller vertical)
- two circle elements (two brad flowers)
- large top “banner” element (zigzag cut paper)
From the left side:
- large vertical element (blue patterned paper block)
- square element (tan patterned paper block)
- title (Bangkok subtitle)
- smaller bottom “banner” element (pennant garland)
I used the lovely Indie Chic Nutmeg collection for this layout.
If you get a few minutes, you should check out how Jana and Danni interpreted the sketch.
My next share is my take on the June MME blog sketch. Anam created another awesome sketch for us to play with this month.
I really 'expanded' the sketch idea, and used one of my favorite MME collections, Indie Chic Ginger. The colors and design of this collection is so perfect for many types of layouts, and to add more interest, I used the stamp from the collection to add my own personal touch.
Using the solid background of 'Relax' I created my own unique stamped design, using a lovely shade of pink distress ink that matched the pink in this collection perfectly.
I clustered several regular and chipboard buttons on the right side, and used a wooden title for my left cluster. **Special tip - the wood color didn't match my color palette as well as I liked, so I changed the color with white distress stain!**
I made a small banner for under the photo, and created a cute 'decorative tape banner' using an industrial sized safety pin, decorative tape, and twine.
