One-Page Week, Part 5

We're calling today's post "the non-one-page layouts post", for lack of a better title.

Tammy has create a beautiful (with a capital B) canvas that is a fun take on the sketch. And you know we've always got to show a few two-page layouts based on the one-page sketch! This one-page sketch is super easy to stretch into a two-page layout and you'll see how Jennifer and I both adapted it for two-pages. 

One-page Sketch #4

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

"Wishes Do Come True" canvas by Tammy Tutterow
Supplies - Patterned Paper: BasicGrey (Hello Luscious: Raspberry Syrup, Inviting, Simply Grand, Rosemary, Jalapeño Jelly); Cardstock: Bazzill; Stickers: BasicGrey (Hello Luscious Element Stickers); Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts (Thickers: Marquise, pink and unknown, black), K&Co Glitter Alphabets (Light Blue and Coral), Making Memories (Paper Reverie Alpha Shimmer and Tiny Alphas); Embellishments: Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mini Paper Clips; Adhesive: Claudine Hellmuth Studio Matte Multi Medium, Tombo Aqua, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ Runner; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Vintage Photo); Misc: Donna Salazar Disstrezz-It-All, sewing machine

I wanted to create a display piece to feature some of my very favorite photos of my three children. This sketch was perfect for adapting to a canvas. Because I used a 12x12 canvas, I needed to add an extra layer to the sketch to cover the sides and edges.

I decided to omit the journaling from the sketch and use just a title to express the sentiment I wanted to

I also used three photos instead of four as the sketch shows. This allowed me to have a bit more space on the photo strip to add some added dimension by curling my paper edges up which gave a peek at the pattern on the back side of the paper.

To help the small glitter letters stand out more and be easier to read, I used a fine tip pen to outline them.

Here are a few more pictures of the details:

"Minnehaha Falls" by Jennifer Larson
Products - Cardstock: Bazzill (kraft); Patterned paper: Fancy Pants, My Mind's Eye, Adornit, American Crafts; Punch: EK Success; Oval Cutter: Coluzzle/Provo Craft; Chipboard letters: The Girls' Paperie, American Crafts; Paint: Claudine Hellmuth/Ranger; Grid stamp: Unity Stamps; Ink: Stampin' Up!; Stickers: My Mind's Eye; Die cuts: My Mind's Eye; Flowers: Jillibean Soup; Floss: DMC; Pen: American Crafts; Other: Brads, buttons

1. I wanted to use this sketch to make a page about our trip to Minnehaha Falls last year, but I had a lot of photos, so I decided to stretch it out over two pages. I essentially did the same thing on both pages, just in reverse and following the orientation of my photos.

2. I chose subdued, outdoorsy colors for the page and products that reflected the outdoors without being too showy.

3. I painted the raw chipboard letters yellow, then stamped on them with a grid stamp to rough them up a little.

"Sunny Day Exploring" by Allison Davis
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill (white) and Core'dinations (green circles); Patterned paper: American Crafts; Embellishments: American Crafts (trees, flowers, bird, stickers, felt sun); Alphabets: Prima (sunny) and American Crafts (day, exploring); Border punch: Fiskars; Embroidery floss: DMC

I loved the overall design of the one-page sketch and thought it would be an easy one to stretch to a two-page layout.

Variation #1 - Stretching the sketch is the perfect way to explain how I adapted the one-page sketch into a two-page layout. I kept the elements the same and stretched the whole design to fit over two pages.

Variation #2 - When I use a one-page sketch for a two-page layout I almost always keep the title in the original place it is on the sketch and then move my journaling to the opposite page. In the case of this sketch I moved it to the opposite page for more room since I had a story that wasn't going to fit in the space provided on the sketch.

Variation #3 - I added an extra piece behind the background rectangle. I wanted to add a little more color around the solid brown piece. 

Variation #4 - I loved this layout by creative team member, Noey Hunt and the cute clouds she had going across the page. I mentally tucked it away in my "must do" file. This layout was the perfect opportunity.

I followed the sketch with the sun and cloud embellishments but instead of just having the clouds near the title I also stretched them across the whole layout. I added stitching to a few of the clouds and used foam adhesive behind a some of them so they would pop up off the page.

Variation #5 - Since I had the clouds going across the top I thought I would continue the landscape look on the bottom too. I added a green scallop strip to represent grass along the bottom.

To complete the look I added trees, flowers, stickers, and a bird.
