Challenge #8: Start with a Sketch

Sunday 3 August 2014

I'm a sucker for layering: I tuck things in, add extra bits, cover stuff up (sometimes accidentally and sometimes on purpose!) and therefore I struggle slightly with grid style layout a bit because they don't lend themselves to layering, so in the spirit of the UKS Summer Scrapbooking Challenge I designed this sketch to challenge myself. I still managed to add in quite a few layers though...

I had already done most of a facing page and used the sketch for the other half of that. I wouldn't call it a double because there backgrounds aren't the same (and I tend to keep my backgrounds exactly the same) but more importantly there are no elements that stretch across the join which is what I think makes a double layout. (well the title does I suppose...) So I'm calling this two facing pages rather than a double layout!

 Jen has put together a fab sample layout too:

Please share your layouts on Instagram using the hashtag #uks2014summerscrapbookingchallenge and also in the UKS dedicated Gallery.

Enjoy the sketch and we'll be back shortly with Challenge #9...

Happy scrapping xx
