Today we have a lovely sketch that Valerie created from one of her favourite DT layouts, she chose a layout that Jules created for 1st April challenge. Here is the sketch Valerie created:
This was a great sketch to play with! I made my layout using the lovely Photo Op kit from Crafty Templates!
Not only I glued the hexagons down as they were, I also used them to make some pinwheels out of them - with six wings instead of four! Very effective, right?!
I love to use sketches! Sometimes I follow them exactly and other times I use them as a starting point with the end result looking nothing like the sketch. I stayed pretty true to this sketch although I replaced the little banner with one large wooden banner piece.
Here's my take on the sketch! My last two layouts have featured hexagons, so I thought I'd go with a slightly different shape this time, and used circles instead. I had great fun playing with all the lovely goodies from Leo at Crafty Templates, all I've added from my own stash is string for the bunting, the Thickers and the glassine bags for the confetti circles.
Loved the sketch this month, another excuse to play with hexagons. For this page I dug out my gesso, and sequin waste and lots of Echo Park This and That papers. The shot was from the summer, of my son and his friends enjoying an open day at the local cricket club.
I love the versatility of sketches and adapted this one to suit my needs. I was very inspired by the background shapes and the banner in the sketch. I replaced the hexagons with circles and changed the location of the banner slightly. Instead of one photo, I used a row of 3 wallet-sized photos.
