I based this page on a sketch created by Yolie Burke, for the monthly DCWV Stack-a-holic challenge. If you're not aware, each month DCWV issues a challenge to create based off of a card and layout sketch. You can see the DT's take on this challenge right here. The sketch is revealed at the first of each month. It's not only inspiring, but a fun way to be featured on the blog and even a chance to win a prize pack. I hope you'll check it out! Here's a look at the layout sketch for February:
As you can see, I mixed things up a bit on my page by replacing one of the photos for a journaling block and forgoing the banners. But the sketch was a great starting point for me.
I love to cluster and layer elements on my pages. Here the envelope, tag and scattering of hearts and gems provide a resting place at the end of the title and above my photo.
The whole idea surrounding this page, came from this awesome DCWV sweater print paper. It's hard to get a feel for the pattern in the larger photo, but this close up allows you to see the texture. Isn't it fun? A cozy sweater print, turned pattern paper - give me one in every color, please!
Thanks for joining me today! I'll be back tomorrow to share a page I created with an ALL NEW DCWV stack!
