Hey friends welcome back to the blog with Jess. I am sharing one of the first pages I have made using my January petite kit for my November Week In The Life. I decided to spend the week of my birthday doing a WITL style project of taking photos and documenting stories. I often miss oput scrapping November because I’m finishing up Autumn projects while getting stuck into December Daily and my birthday month just gets missed so I decided to ‘document now’ in November in order to ‘make later’ in January. I just got all my photos printed through Truprint as they had a 1p print sale and I have a desk organiser full of gorgeous product based around the OneCanoeTwo Willow collection – from this months kit, previous months kits and a few bits I purchased or got as a gift for my birthday.
Long intro aside, I decided to start with this months sketch:
I rotated it to fit a 6×8 layout and made the squares 1.5inch and re-printed the photos to be a bit smaller. I chose my favourite papers and some of the Amy Tangerine speciality acetate paper from my kit for the squares.
I backed the photos with white to help them stand out against the different colours and used a gold foil Heidi Swapp word ‘daily’ for the title.
I embellished with stickers from the Willow collection that all tied together.
I really enjoyed this sketch and how it turned out on a 6×8 page – I think it is a quick and easy way to get a really effective design and use up small pieces of patterned paper. It’s definitely going to become one of those designs I use again and again.
I hope you enjoyed this look at my take on the sketch, hopefully soon I will have even more Week In The Life pages to share.
