I took part in a layout tag challenge and thought I'd share my layout here. It also occured to me that I never ever do tutorials anymore (just no time!) so I figured I'd do a teensy mini- tutorial.
If you're a long-time follower you'll know that I always like to make a sketch before I scrap anything. I definitely still do this! This is the sketch I used- based off of the layout I received for the challenge
I decided to make the single photo into 2 but other than that I stayed pretty true to the sketch, although I did move it up and to the left a wee bit. I loved these pictures of Charlie and his friend Gracie playing and tugging on each others faces hehehe.
Before I glue anything down I like to arrange everything and take a picture. Then I piece the layout together piece by piece using that photo as a reference (this helps when I need to sew between putting layers down and would otherwise forget what I'm doing and where I wanted things to go haha)
I didn't like how the title was floating in mid air so I decided to anchor it using an October Afternoon label sticker. All materials from this layout are from the NoelMignon.com kit "Mary Ellen" by the way :) So anyways, I changed the layout a wee bit and took another picture.
Next I started sewing and using my punches. I also decided to outline my pieces of paper with black ink to give it a little POP. This is the final product :)
Aren't those photo's just darling? I hope you like the layout, be back for more soon! Have a fabulous holiday weekend everybody!
