Lots of Stars

Lots of Stars

09 june basic sketchstar gazing

It’s a new Allison Davis sketch!!! I was so excited when Allison asked me if I wanted to participate in Sketch Week on her blog. I’ve missed Sketch Support so much and couldn’t wait to get started making a layout based on this sketch.

We took a trip to Griffith Park Observatory during Spring Break and Mason loved it! I enjoyed just watching him explore the exhibits and soak up all the information. For the layout, I used five different constellation patterned papers (American Crafts, WRMK, Echo Park, Studio Calico, Pebbles) and one piece of constellation vellum (Studio Calico).

I added lots of star accents and some other theme embellishments I found in my stash. I used outside photos and light colored papers on the left side and transitioned to inside photos and darker papers on the right side. I wanted to imply the earth turning and causing the day to change from light to dark. Too abstract? I agree! That’s way too much thought put into a scrapbook page!! 8-O I kept the background cardstock the same light blue color on both sides and used a strip of vellum as a border across the bottom for continuity.

Two reasons this sketch is awesome:

1–It’s versatile. You may have noticed that I did not follow the sketch exactly. I changed the photo sizes, the location of the embellishments, and omitted the stitching. You can tell that I used the sketch, but I also made it work for me.

2–It’s free. FREE!! You can download it here.

Don’t forget to check out Allison Davis’ blog to see more interpretations of this sketch!

It’s really nice to see you ladies from the sketch support DT posting again as a guest designer. I’ve missed seeing all the creativity and how everyone interprets the sketches!
