Magical | For the Love of Pretty Paper Sketch Challenge

Saturday 6 August 2022

Hey everyone, I’m playing along with the August For the Love of Pretty Paper sketch today. I’ve rotated the sketch 180 degrees but otherwise kept to the sketch quite closely.

I’ve used two portrait photos instead of one landscape photo and I’ve put my title below my photos instead of above (as represented on the sketch when it is turned 180 degrees). I’ve also made my embellishment clusters quite a bit bigger but otherwise everything is in roughly the right place!

I’ve used the Witches & Wizards collection by Echo Park Paper and I’ve chosen papers and elements that have meaning and relate to my photos. For example, I’ve chosen a black background paper to represent the darkness of the Harry Potter series, I’ve chosen the green paper to represent Slytherin House because the Cursed Child play revolves a lot around Slytherin. I’ve used a large train embellishment because the train features a lot in the play, and I’ve used footprints from the Marauders’ Map because that features in the play too. It’s not always possible to choose scrapbooking supplies to suit your photos, but I do it as often as my photos and supplies allow because I do like my layout to have meaning rather than just always because the supplies were pretty! There’s nothing wrong with this approach of course but I like to have some links with my photos when I can. These things aren’t always obvious to others looking at the layout, but they do have meaning to me.

Enjoy playing along with the August sketch and happy scrapping
