Sketchy Sunday at Traci Reed Designs


I am LOVING the sketches that Traci is putting up on the blog. They are super versatile and always push me to try new things … this week … circles!!As someone without a die cutting machine I tend to avoid large size circle sketches as much largest punch is a 3 inch one!!I dragged a long forgotten tool out of my stash for this though - a Circular template and blade cutter!I knew I wanted to work at this Traveller’s Notebook size so simply cut the sketch in half in my mind. The circular photo is cut just over 5 inches and it works well on this size of layout.I stuck to the sketch pretty closely. I’d even lined up stars to use for my embellishments originally.I knew I wanted to work with Traci’s current collection Happy Day as I am in love with the colour palette. I’ve got quite a few papers left printed but am running low on die cuts so decided to use up my florals before printing another set off (hence substituting florals for stars)I wasn’t sure whether using white cardstock in the background would make this page a little boring but the papers and embellishments are so gorgeous that the white space just makes them shine even more! Love this project!! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s take on this sketch. Remember, if you don’t have a die cutting machine or circular cutter, there’s always the option to draw around something circular and just fussy cut! I hope you enjoy the sketch as much as I did.

I'd love to see what others in the scrapbook community make with this sketch.  Use the hashtag #TRDSketchySunday on Instagram to be sure the team see your posts and to see more inspiration from the Team.
