Today I am sharing w/ you the latest sketch over at Sketches in Thyme.
Here is the sketch:
The 3rd sketch of the month is always a 2-pager, but as you already know, I don't do 2-pagers, so here is my take inspired by the Right-Hand Side of the sketch:
I hate the water but my husband and daughter love it! When they get the opportunity to get into a pool they do, and have lots of fun too! This layout not only shows them having fun in the pool but having fun together! They have a strong bond and absolutely adore each other!
Even though I cut the original 2-page sketch in half I was still able to fit 8 pics on one layout.
How cool is that?!
For me that is very cool as I wanted to scrap all these pics of my husband and daughter but wasn't exactly sure how I was going to do it.
As you can tell I cheated a bit w/ this though...
I made the picture placement easier on myself by printing all the pics out as a grid and then cutting that grid out into one large pic.
Which just goes to show you that sketches don't always have to be followed exactly. They are there to inspire and jumpstart your creativity. As a matter of fact, the rule at SIT is that you can "flip, rotate, and adapt the sketch to work for you- as long as we can still see the sketch in there".
So that's what I did...made it work for me.
And I love the finished product!
Now it's your turn to show us how the sketch works for YOU!
