Are you ready for today’s scrapbook sketch? I don’t know about where you live, but April has certainly come in like a lamb here in Utah, but I hear the lion is about to rear his ugly head with rain and wind today. Sounds like a perfect day to get a long awaited scrapbook page completed. In today’s single page scrapbook sketch we have a great page for beginners. There is no need to crop your photos down as this sketch features 3 of your standard 4 x 6 photos. You will want two vertical and one horizontal if your are going to follow the scrapbook sketch exactly.
When I completed this sketch I used a paper tearing technique to add some depth to the upper side of the layout and a middle strip for contrast.
While my finished layout has the who, what, where and why it is missing the when of the journaling. While this page is part of a vacation series to Nashville in the 90’s I neglected to reference the actual date anywhere.
Now as you may recall, I have a strict rule against re-doing scrapbook pages I am not opposed however to adding to them when part of the story is left out so I will go back today and add the date (as soon as I can find it).
Scrapbook sketches or page maps as they are also referred to can be a great wake up to your own creativity. They give you a base but leave lots of room for your own additions. How will you interpret this scrapbook sketch? Don’t forget to send me a picture of your layout so you can be entered into the April Layouts giveaway. Leave a comment below and tell me how you made this sketch your own.
