Sketches Revisited: Sketch 6

This sketch feature is about bringing back some of our "oldies-but-definitely-goodies" sketches.  The Got Sketch? team will be doing this periodically to show you a new approach to some old sketch favorites.  I'm excited to share these again!

Chrissy's Notes:  I chose the Got Sketch? sketch #6 based on the photos I had.  I knew I wanted to use a large portion of all of my pictures and since sketch #6 allowed for 4- 4x4 pictures I knew it was perfect.  I was even able to keep one of my pictures (the upper right picture) a little larger (4x5) than the other three.  I also loved the simple design and wanted to really focus on my pictures.  Instead of the curve on the bottom of the sketch, I added a simple 1 1/2" border with a border sticker underneath.  

  • I stayed true to the journaling strips by adding them to the bottom right of my layout as the sketch shows.  (see image #2)  
  • For my title I added a long journaling sticker to tie together my large tree embellishment, apple, and title.  (see image #1). 
  • Instead of a photo corner as the sketch shows in the upper right corner of the layout, I used a small tag and added twine for dimension.  (see image #3)
