I have loved seeing how our other team members have interpreted the Anthropologie ad sketches this month and now its my turn.
I used the 7 gypsies tape and other embellishments from the September "Indian Summer" kit from Scarlet Lime to do this project. I let the tape mimic the random placement of the drawer elements in the photo background and used a blue sticker in the corner of the photo to echo the look in the sketch. Then I used buttons for bullet points and rubons and stickers for the journaling. I loved those yellow shoes in the sketch and the yellow felt key accent in the kit was perfect to pull just a touch of yellow into my page.
The second sketch was fun, too. I really liked the notebook paper accent so I definitely had to use that on my own.
I chose to use the September frugal kit for my second sketch. It all worked together perfectly for the idea I had in mind for this page and the flower and paper ribbon accents were the perfect contrast to my Mother's Day gift from my boys.
I had to use both photos of my boys because they both tell so much of the story with the one photo of them both picking glue off their fingers and the other of one boy pointing to the other and saying, "It was his idea," and the other saying, "You wanted to do it, too!" So I just used them both - close together - as the large photo in the sketch. By extending the patterned paper down the side I tried to bring emphasis to the photo of their artwork and then I added the text to the top just like in the sketch.
These sketches and kits were a blast to work with! Please join us this month and use the sketches to inspire you to create your own pages or projects!
