I am back today with another catch up post. I never got a chance to post my last Felicity Jane layout for you on my blog. So here it is. I was very excited when it was finally my time to play with the Sketch Saturday theme over on the Felicity Jane blog.
The beautiful Dannielle at Banning Lane created a beautiful structured sketch which is very different from what I am used to but it was fun to play with a different style and still create something that was uniquely Nae.
I am really anti theme when it comes to my paper and embellishment selection and so I wanted to show you just how easy it is to transform a neutral kit into a Christmas theme layout. Its all about the photo and this little cutey in my photo is all the Christmas you need. You can tell just from the photo and his santa hat that this was Christmas Day. You don't need a dump truck of green and red paper and a bazillion christmas stickers to know this is a christmas layout.
Of course when playing with a sketch, you don't have to always be following the sketch exactly. Merging elements, adding layers are all part of making the sketch and your layout original so don't be afraid to play around a bit and make that sketch 100% your own! Remember, you layout still needs to resemble you and if you jump over to the Felicity Jane blog you will see just how different two styles can make the same sketch feel different on their layouts.
So when scrapping Christmas layouts, I do tend to pick Christmas motifs, but not themed. Stars are a prime example of that. On this layout I included a spattering of stars, none of them are traditional christmas colours and so give the illusion of Christmas without being WHAM in your face.
Finally guys, here is the process video for my beautiful sketch layout. Don't forget to jump over to the Felicity Jane blog and check out the beautiful Danielle and her process video and layout as well. That is Nae 100% up to date on blog posts, now to get out there and create more videos and posts for you all to read.
Love you guys,
