Hope yours was memorable...
in a good way! :0)
Just stopping in to let you know that Sketches in Thyme is up w/ a new sketch today.
Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on it:
As you can see I did a one pager.
I do not like scrapping 2 pagers.
In fact I think I have only completed one 2 pager in the over 14 years that I have been scrapping!
I think it has to do w/ my ADD.
I get bored easily so after completing 1 page, I really don't want to try to scrap another coordinating page... I need it to be completly different, which doesn't work w/ 2 pagers.
Also I turned the sketch on its side.
That's me, always have to be a rebel...LOL!
A little bit about the layout:
I bought the scalloped circle paper because I loved how pretty it looked on other people's layouts in the Scrapbook.com gallery. But once I got it, I could't get it to work for me. The white space of it was just too much! I am a total "Negative Space" kinda girl, but I think the fact that it was 'white' negative space threw me off! I am not very good at scrapping on a white BG!
(Add that to the list of things I'm "not good at").
I had the paper in my stash for a while and I was afraid it would become one of those items that gets lost in the stash for years! Which would have been a real shame, because I said, it looked great on other layouts.
So since the sketch called for a giant circle and it is a giant circle I challenged myself to use it.
A challenge w/in a challenge I guess you could say.
Finally when I was so frustrated that I was about to put it away and work on another layout, I had the idea to cut the circle in half and layer the two halves on top of each other in order to make the white space less 'white'.
Once I did that the rest of the layout basically came together in no time!
So how 'bout you?
Do you think you could create something fabulous using the sketch?
I bet you can!
And if you do and share it w/ us you just may win a prize!
