When I heard Kristine Davidson from Creative Scrappers, was putting out a third volume of her amazing sketches, I was so excited! I’m a big fan of her work and her sketches, and I chose Volume 2 of her book as one of my Fab Friday Finds back in April because I was so smitten with her sketches. Well, I recently got to work with one of her sketches for this book, and my layout will appear in Creating with Sketches Volume 3!! Here is the layout:
I created this layout with the Scraptastic kit from August (called Celebration) along with a few things from my stash. I love how the colours of the kit compliment the reds, blues, and green in the photos. The sketch provided a great opportunity for me to play with the papers without worrying too much abut the overall design of the layout.
I also decided to pull out some of what I consider classic scrapbooking supplies: brads and stickles! I love how the turquoise stickles on the rosette ties in with the blue glitter Thickers.
I followed the sketch pretty closely for this layout, but one thing I love about using sketches is that you can use them as a jumping off point, or follow them closely, or anything in between!

Now, here is the process video which shows the layout come together from start to finish:
