Hi! Welcome to my challenge! This is week one in my 52 week 52 sketch challenge. For 2011, I want to try and get more 12x12 layouts done. In 2010, I got introduced to a new world of scrapbooking. Sure inking, stamping and distressing were out there for a long time. I on the other hand had no idea. I was a basic scrapbooker. So in 2010, I started watching youtube videos and got inspired to try all sorts of new techniques and start making mini albums. They're fun to do and I won't stop making them. For 2011, I decided to put it aside one day out of the week, every week for a year and get some layouts done. 52 sketches in 52 weeks sounds hard but that's why it's called a challenge. The layout is already planned out so that makes it easy and having 52 different sketches will make your album look that much more interesting. Trust me, I got 52 more for next year! (If all goes good this year)
So here's week 1!
Ok so first thing Is I chose a picture. I knew the sketch asked for one so I chose it and chose paper that would coordinate together. I chose a shade of blue to match the shirt in the photo. Then looked in My Minds Eye All About Boys paper pack and chose papers that coordinated together as well.
Since there are 3 layers of background paper, I chose to take a blue glitter polka dot for the back page. I then cut a brown page 11x11 and another blue paper at 10x10. That way it would create the layers like in the sketch. NOTICE there are no measurements in the sketch. Make it fit to your liking. If you prefer half inch borders or 2 inch borders,do it! make it so it's eye catching to you.
You are a connection to life,
A Tie to the past,
A road to the future,
The key to sanity in a totally insane world."
Hope you like it and join me next week for another layout challenge.
