Sketch #4

Remember the layout sketches I drew on vacation?  It only took a few minutes each to convert those rough pencil sketches into clean digital versions, using Open Office Draw. Here's my Sketch #4:


I originally intended it for some more Young-Me-Now-Me layouts that I'm planning.  But I had two random pictures of Trevor from Home Depot and Lowe's kids workshops that worked perfectly with this sketch.  So that's what I did.  This layout came together incredibly quickly.



A few fun facts about this page: 

*I've had the hammer/lumber stickers for at least a decade.  There's no date printed on the sticker back, which is a shame.  

*In contrast to the ancient stickers, the patterned paper (from the Heidi Swapp 'No Limits' line) is the newest supply I own.  

*The letters in the title started out turquoise (let's) and yellow (BUILD).  I inked them to make them both look brown, but it's pretty clear that they started out as different colors.  My eye goes right to that, but I decided that most people wouldn't notice.  And even if they did, it looks fine.

  3. These photos are soooooo cute. Great page. I love how you turned your vacation sketch into a digital one and a scrapbook page. I like the different fonts for your title. I didn't notice the color difference until you pointed it out. You can also paint your alphas. That gives a more opaque coverage than inking.
