It's time for the monthly sketch challenge which I am sharing over at Cocoa Daisy today. You can find the sketch and two of the other designers' layouts HERE.
Gotta tell you, I was relieved to see that there weren't circles on the sketch this month! I did struggle with the sketch this month as it was rather disproportionate to me. I made it work though, that's the beauty of sketches! I just love the DITL cards and used them here on the layout along with that awesome title and the leaves which came from a BYOAO - Doodlebug Odds & Ends.
I pop dotted the title up for a little added depth and dimension to the layout. I just love the colors, so rich and so much depth to them. That chevron journal card from the DITL kit really was the color inspiration for this layout. See the little bit of the wood note pad sticking out from the bottom of the layout? I think you find bits and pieces of that through out layouts to come, I'm a fan!
Please pardon the empty journaling spot. I'm still waiting on Michael to do something about that glaring white void on my layout. He thinks he's going to mess it up and doesn't want to write on the layout... I told him the kids would appreciate seeing his handwriting years from now. Someday, perhaps, it will say something. Hopefully before the memory is forgotten.
I would love for you to join us and play along! Be sure to check out the October Cocoa Daisy kits - there are still some available!
