Creative Scrappers sketches always grab me. Always! This one was no exception. What I love about sketches, one of the many things, is that I can put a layout together lickety split with a sketch. Through in a paper collection that I love and it's that much faster! Such as the Jubilee, Mint Julep collection from My Mind's Eye. Swoon!!
So sketch number 277 from Creative Scrappers folks, that's the inspiration. You can find it HERE. It looks like this;
And this is my interpretation;
I decided to forgo the triangles for other elements on the side and some "garnish" to the header and footer of the layout. I really do make an effort to journal too, so that had to fit in there somewhere too! Isn't this collection just sublime with those black and white silhouette pictures? That splash of black and white just wraps the whole thing together!
I love the hints of gold poking out from behind pictures, the edge of the page and hanging from the top banner. Gold! It's a trend that I'm all aboard with. I can't say that about a lot of them but this one, it's golden!
Not part of the sketch but my own personal touch. I didn't have black mist so I had to compromise. I used the black Caran D'Ache crayon that came with my collection and flicked it around the page some for the little added depth to the page.
Jenny's sketch is quite the inspiration! Thanks Creative Scrapper's and Jenny! This layout came together in less than an hour thanks to the sketch and My Mind's Eye's awesome collection!
Oh! And Kristine is putting together another sketch book! You can find the details about creating a layout based on one of her sketches HERE!
