Two-page Week, Part 2

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
We've got another three layouts to share with you today, including a one-page layout based on one side of the sketch. That's one of the great things about two-page sketches, a lot of times, you can get two sketches for one by using the left or right side as individual sketches.

Two-page Sketch #7


You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the two-page sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.



"At the Park" by Shari Thurman
Supply List - Patterned paper, chipboard shapes, borders, rub-ons: Crate Paper; Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink (chestnut roan); Adhesive: Thermo-web 3D; Embroidery floss: DMC; Tools: Sew Easy, We R Memory Keepers, and Cricut; Other: cardstock, machine and hand stitching

The wavy line on this sketch just screams "movement!", which was great for pictures of my boys at the park. I picked out seven photos I wanted to use and then adjusted the sketch to accomodate them. I added a brown stitched mat behind the photos to anchor the photos and give some relief from the busy background paper.


I moved the journal block to the lower right, so that it didn't break my photo grouping. For the embellishments I added some chipboard stickers and arrows to play up the movement and used machine and hand stitching to finish.


Here are the adjusted measurements: 

• Background: 9 1/4 x 11" on both sides, with the wavy line cut along the bottom.
• Red strips are 11 x 1/2", cream strips are 10 1/2 x 3/4"
• Photos and journal block: 3 1/2 x 4
• The background is 1/2 inch from the top of the page.
• Brown mat is 1 inch from the top of the page.

"Home Sweet Home" by Tammy Tutterow

"Fall" by Amy Roller
Supply list - Cardstock: Stampin Up! (background) and Bazzill (title); Patterned paper: Dollar Tree and Imaginisce, Sticker Embellishments: Karen Foster, K Marcella, and Jolees; Metal charms: unknown; Other: Brown craft thread; Adhesive squares: 3M

For this sketch I only changed a few things. I used a larger pattern for the background instead of a smaller one just for the fact that I liked how the big pumpkins fit the large pumpkin Mason is sitting on.

I stitched a solid line around the group of smaller photos because I thought it helped break up the orange a little and helped them stand out.

I also carried the stitched line from the right side of the sketch around my page in several spots to form the "swirling" path of the leaves which I used in place of the snowflake embellishments in the sketch.


I added stitching details to these as well. Really just because I liked the added contrast and depth it added.


I also chose to group several embellishments together instead of just 1 or 2 in the designated areas. And the little round embellishment by the 5 x 7 picture is not on the sketch but was a "mistake fixer upper"! I had a to cover a blemish on the photo and it was the perfect size.

L-
Sorry about that. The patterned paper is all Cosmo Cricket Early Bird. The flowers, crystals, and stars are all Prima. I tossed the packaging on the Prima stuff quite a while back (oops)so I don't have the exact names on those. Sorry.
