So I ALWAYS have a stack of photos printed on hand for scrapbooking. I like having the opportunity to scrapbook if I have a moment. I don’t want to be held back jsut because I don’t have any photos on hand. In the case with this sketch, I just dug through my pile and pulled out this photo to use.
This is such a horrible photo to scrapbook, but I loved it anyway. It was from my Dad’s birthday last August and I liked that it captured a fun moment of his laughing and telling a story. I focused on the fact that it was an imperfect photo so that was the theme I went with for the layout. I basically turned all the patterned pages so they were not aligned. I then made the title and the journaling on an angle as well. Def out of my comfort zone but that is the point of this class- try something fun and new with the sketches.
Great take on the sketch! I love to scrap “imperfect” photos. 🙂 It’s all about the feelings they bring up when you look at them, right? Lovely tribute to your dad!
love how you “shrunk” down the bkgrnd for the sketch! and I love that you scrapped the photo anyways! (happens to me all the time!)
