While I absolutely adore modern technology and the overwhelming amount of possibilities that comes with it, it does occasionally fail (like my hard drive failure last year), and that has happened this week :(
Whilst filming Start with a Sketch #15, #16 and #17 my memory card corrupted. That's never happened before (and I am now scared that I will one day lose all my photos stored on SD cards) and I have absolutely no idea why it happened. I was filming as normal, nothing wrong whatsoever but when I went to download the files onto my pc, none of them would open and they had all corrupted. I have most of Start with a Sketch #14. The last part of the video has no sound but you can see what's going on, but the final part of that layout was lost, as were the whole of #16 & #17. So I've tagged the completed layouts onto the end of the video and they are on here too, below, for you to see, but there are no process videos to watch. For those of you who regularly watch my videos, I'm very sorry that this has happened but believe me no one is more annoyed about it than me!
Start with a Sketch #15 features three small photos (around 3x4) and one title card, all across one horizontal strip with a small amount of embellishment at the top and bottom of the page. I am still using the ME-ology Collection Kit by Fancy Pants Designs along with coordinating embellishments and a few other bits and pieces from my stash.
Start with a Sketch #16 has three small-ish photos all layered together, with some paper layers behind and a vertical strip down the right edge of the page. I sometimes find it quite difficult to cluster photos together and I tend to default to putting them all in a line so I wanted to move away from that in this sketch. Clustering photos like this can lead to awkward gaps and spaces but I just always then make sure I fill those in to ensure they don't look awkward on the finished layout.
And finally today, Start with a Sketch #17 contains one normal-sized photo and two tiny square photos with a large block of pattern on one side of the layout and several paper layers beneath the photos.
Apologies once again for the lack of these videos, I sincerely hope nothing like this happens again and I'll be back next week with Start with a Sketch #18, which will be a full video!
Happy scrapping xx
