I really wanted to play along at MDS Monday this week with the sketch challenge. Man, it was definitely a challenge for me. Here's the sketch that was posted, and the challenge to go along with it was to find some fun ways to attach my photos.
First of all, I really struggled with that big picture... not because I don't like big pictures... (I knew right away which pictures I wanted to use) but it just wouldn't center it within my bleed area enough when I stretched it the full 12". (I've had a bad experience with that bleed area before, and have since learned my lesson!) So I settled for a 10"x6" photo with nothing other than a Downtown Grunge frame around it! I 'attached' it with stitching that I recolored to Brilliant Blue to match the slide. I messed around FOREVER with how to attach those smaller pictures. Nothing looked right, I wanted something different... and I was starting to try too hard... and that NEVER works! Usually gets worse!
Then I thought of BRADS! I haven't used brads (the real or the digital version) in ages! So I plopped a few of those babies in and called it good! I actually like them! Now all I have to do is save this in Carlye's album... then change the bottom three pictures to apply to my other two daughters, Gemma and SarahLynn, change the journalling a bit, save 'em, and it's THREE layouts done, just like that! Gotta love that!
Thanks for looking! Have a fabulous weekend!
