Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on it: (Click on any image to view larger). I decided to stay pretty true to the design of the sketch and not rotate it in any way.
I kept the location of the photos pretty much the same as the sketch but opted to add the adorable vellum photo pocket in the middle to house my journaling tidbits instead of a photo.
The journaling is lots of little things I loved about my son at the age he was in the photos. I used the Dear Lizzy 3D embellishments (hearts and star) in place of the clouds and a shipping tag (not included in the kit) behind the doily for a bit of layering. I incorporated a bit of misting in various locations as well. I think the misting kind of added to the playfulness of my layout. The most fun I had while creating this layout was adding the embellishments (Love the enamel dots and the fabulous feather!!) and stamping in an ombre pattern using a masking technique. I really loved the soft feel it added to the layout and how it repeated the layout's theme. I am looking forward to seeing how each of you interpret this sketch and look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery! Please feel free to ask any questions in the comment section below!
