SKETCH - LAYOUT
This months sketch was by October Afternoon. I really liked this sketch. It is always fun to work off of sketches, it takes a lot of thinking out of making a layout. I decided that instead of using three little pictures to use one large pic. Since I had two similar sized pics of each kiddo (4x7 1/2), I made a layout for both. Each month, the kits that Kimberly puts together have such a range of colors and textures. With this one kit, I was able to make a masculine and feminine layout that are the same but completely different. I love that the kits are so versatile.
BEAUTY BLOOMS FROM WITHIN
This is the femine version. I used the flower die cuts and the floral patterned papers. I splatted some Mister Huey mist and backed the banners in white card stock.
GROWING UP TOO FAST
This is the masculine version. I used the chevron and bright colored patterned papers. I backed the banners with the charcoal paper. I was fortunate that the die cut stickers from Dear Lizzy had a whole bunch of 7's, they fit perfectly for this layout as my son is 7 right now.
SKETCH - CARD
My card isn't exactly like the sketch, (not even close), but a sketch is there for inspiration and sometimes the inspiration and the finished projects aren't the same. When I had first envisioned it, the hexagons would overlap each other some popped up and some not, however when I was done, it was very linear. I think it turned out really cute. Don't be afraid to use a sketch, you may never know which direction it will go.
