What a fun sketch! Shannon mentioned that she designed this sketch with the summer sun or July fireworks in mind. I had no summer pictures to scrap, nor did I have three photos in those approximate sizes that would work together. I ended up using the one photo- the group picture I took on New Year's Eve.
I'm not sure how I feel about this layout. It doesn't feel like me. This is the first time I've ever painted directly on cardstock. I love how quick and easy it was to make a journaling space, but I'm not sure I can deal with how messy it seems. I'm rethinking whether I should have painted behind the photo too (again- not my usual crisp and clean look). I'm glad I tried a new-to-me technique and I'm glad that the sketch pushed me out of my comfort zone.
