Challenge 35- Toasted Marshmallow Day
Well, amazingly enough, it's Friday again!! This week's challenge is so simple and dramatic. I love the flourishes underneath the journaling. I forgot to post yesterday but it was National Toasted Marshmallow Day!! Did you even know there was such a thing? I didn't but it sure makes a great page theme, doesn't it? I want you to get out this weekend with your family, toast a few 'mallows and document it on this fun page. I can already imagine which photos would go where on this one. Oh, and a little note for some of you who get a little stressed when I post sketches with large prints; consider alternative ways to use your photos while maintaining the overall design concept of the sketch. For instance, the above sketch could easily be modified by using two 4x6's stacked on top of one another, just be sure to shorten your 4x6 to 4x5.5 to keep the exact dimensions of the main image. Also, remember where you see circles you can always substitute a different shape and where you see flourishes, you may choose to apply ribbons or hand stitching. The page elements are simply suggestions for placement of elements and images. Get crazy and change things up!! Don't forget, you can also rotate the sketch to better suit your photos!!!
Enjoy this one.
