LCTS sketch #145 reveal

It's reveal day over at the Let's Capture These Sketches blog,  Here's a look at the sketch #145 by Natalie Roy:

I will fully admit that the free form design and overlapping pictures, had me a bit stumped at first.  However, once I settled on using just one photo, and substituting banner/tag elements in place of the others, the rest of the page fell together pretty easily.  It goes without saying that my layout is much more linear than the sketch, but what can I say - I like my straight lines! ;)

Supplies used - Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle Saturdays Collection, Meet Me in the Meadow (floral) and Blue Reverie (blue/white medallions and grid); Diecuts/Tags: Little Yellow Bicycle Saturdays Collection tear-out ticket and journaling card book; Embellishements: Jolee's Boutique (small grey flowers), American Crafts thickers (title) and brad (Amy Tangerine), Bella Blvd (yellow/white chevron tape), Colorbok (stick pin), My Mind's Eye Lost and Found (label stickers); Stamps: Jillibean Soup ('anniversary' and numbers); Other: October Afternoon sprinklers, machine stitching, button, Autumn Leaves ink

I love that the title stickers provide a tone on tone feel to the layout, but also have their own presence and pattern to make them stand out against the background paper.  I have seen these particular Thickers used all over the scrapbooking world as of late, and finally scored some of my own!

From the next two close up shots, you'll see that I spent lots of time dressing up the beautiful tags/tickets/banners that coordinated with this particular Little Yellow Bicycle paper collection. I love the collage-y feel of all of these elements and layers.

I hope you stop by the Let's Capture These Sketches blog, to check out the other amazing designer's pages and play along with this month's sketch!  Leave me a note and let me know if you do!
