02/15/16 - MIM #54

Good Monday Morning!

The latest "Make it Monday" is up live over at "The Memory Nest".
Here is the sketch:

MIM #54

And here is my version of it:

"David Spade Date Night"
Journaling: "Date Night is not complete until... David Spade "likes"
your "Date Night " photo. 01/13/16"

You may notice...
It's a lot busier than the sketch.
Yes, it is! But if you look closely you will see how it follows it!
    1. 3 photos
    2. 3 half-circles (although mine are full circles partly covered up to mimic the "half-circles")
    3. Washi tape strips to mimic the "arrow" elements of the sketch
    4. The journaling tabs have an "arrow-like" feel to them to also mimic those elements in the sketch

I have to be honest: I tried to follow the sketch more precisely; I even printed out tiny versions of my photos. But, despite my love of negative space, it was just too much for me!
I guess I'll save "tiny" photos for my art journal.

It's okay though, because my version just proves you don't need to follow a sketch precisely to be inspired by it.
I like the layout and the sketch was a great starting point!

Don't forget to link up your layout:  precisely created or inspired by... by the end of the month to be in the running for a prize!


  1. Great take! I have a tough time with negative space too. Your interpretation is fantastic. Cool on the Spade comment :)


  2. Fantastic layout and fantastic take on that sketch! How cool that David Spade liked your photo!

  4. I like your version of the sketch better than the original. I like to be able to see the photos! Very cool that David Spade likes you. :)

  5. I always love your interpretations! So inspiring :D


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
