Sketchy Sunday #24
The sketch this week over at Traci Reed Designs is one that showcases two square photos. The placement of the paper layers in a vertical over on the one side also gives the sketch a really clean and uncluttered feel. I knew that I wanted to use patterned paper for the background as soon as I saw the sketch but was unsure which collection to go for.
My photo stream is currently FULL of photos from my daughter's prom and I knew I wanted to start telling the stories of that experience straight away. We had so much fun while she was getting ready as I took photos of each step in the journey which I edited as black and white for that softer look.
I quickly cropped the first two to square and pulled out my basket of pre-printed collections. Having the photos as black and white made it really easy to work with any of Traci's collections as I straight away had no colour clashes or compliments to worry about.
Instead I decided to go with sentiments. Prom has been such a big thing in her mind for so long now, that the Dreamer sentiment's in the freebie collection "Beautiful Dreamer" made that the perfect choice.
As she is a girl who loves pink I quickly opted for that gorgeous pink as my background paper. I followed the sketch very closely with my layout. More closely than I have for a while. It just came together so easily. That is one of the things I LOVE about working with one of Traci's sketches - it takes alot of the choices and deliberations away (if I want it to). It also is just an inspiration point if I decide I want to go really 'off' sketch!!!
I'm so happy with how this one turned out, and I apologise in advance for all of the prom photos to come in my future projects!!! Proud Momma alert!!
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.
