Happy Monday! This week on the Use Your Stuff Blog the challenge involved using a predesigned sketch to create your project. I had a little of a challenge with this layout based upon the placement of the three photos but once I had found the right combination of pictures, the rest of the layout came together pretty quickly.
I chose to use Vellum for the layers underneath the title as there was already a lot going on in this layout. This is an easy technique to add some layers and dimension in a subtle way and allow the rest of the colors in the layout to stand on their own. Tissue paper layers would create the same effect! I also created by own epoxy dimensional stickers for both the sun and the lifeguard symbol on the bottom using stickers, cut-aparts, and clear epoxy toppers. This is another excellent (and easy!) strategy for when you don't necessarily have the embellishments that you are looking for.
I hope that you enjoyed this layout and I can't wait to see what you create for the sketch challenge! Make sure to visit the Use Your Stuff blog to see what the other design team members created and to link us to your project so we can send you some love! Happy Crafting!!
