I've spent this week playing with sketches to make myself pages. This week's sketch at The Paper Variety is no exception...and I think I may love this sketch the best (I know I keep saying this for every new sketch that I try).
The original sketch had the photo block "floating" in the middle of the 12x12 layout. I have a hard time with layouts like that, so I always have to find ways to anchor these floating sketches.
I had this paper (links coming soon) that had pretty dandelion-like flowers. Because I had a couple of sheets of this paper, I took a second sheet and cut out some of the flowers. Using dimensional foam, I laid the flowers directly on top of where they are on the main piece of paper. I strategically placed them in locations where the sketch called for an embellishment. I instantly felt better about the overall look of the page.
