Inspired Blueprints | Sketch 117

Mini photos and loads of white space are the key feature of this week's sketch...
Layout by Azumi Izuno
Azumi has stayed true to the sketch, creating this fun-filled layout about her son's 3rd birthday! Azumi has used mists for her background instead of paint splotches. Coincidentally, Azumi created this layout on her actual birthday. We hope you had a lovely birthday celebration Azumi!
Layout by Cassie Wiscarson
Cassie has used slightly larger photos (3.5x5) and flipped the sketch horizontally to better work with her photos. She also added extra embellishments and layers to create this fun layout about her daughter.

Layout by Elina Stromberg
Elina has stayed fairly true to the sketch, only adjusting the position of her title. Love all the little strips of paper and washi she's added too...a great way to use up those scraps!
Layout by Maria Featon
Maria has kept the orientation and size of the photos the same as the sketch, adding a texture paste background using a mask where the "splotches" are found on the sketch.
Layout by Mariko Hisazumi
Mariko has add diecut chipboard in place of the painted background shown in the sketch. I love how she has highlighted her babies holding hands by creating a love heart made from twine.
Layout by Marlyn Ramirez
After converting the sketch to 8.5x11, Marlyn didn't have any space on the top left for the title so she placed her journaling below her photos instead.

Layout by Rikki Graziani
Rikki has misted her background with 3 different Heidi Swapp Colour shines and add a texture paste doily. Instead of the tag, Rikki added  multiple layers of vellum and patterned paper. For the title, she has added a small amount of paper and a speech bubble. As you can see, this sketch looks just as effective with one photo, in place of two!

Layout by Sharryn Thomson
Sharryn had a bit of a play with this sketch by flipping it to the right and using one 4" x 6" portrait sized photo rather than the two smaller landscape sized ones. She has also tried a completely different style to what she usually does, having loads of fun using bright coloured paints, inks, stamps and washi tape to create her background. Sharryn has changed up the embellishments a little by using a chipboard sentiment as her title, placing it slightly further down from the top left of the photo. Sharryn has also omitted the journalling tag and replaced it with a few funky bits and pieces.

Layout by Tessa Wise
Tessa has stayed true to the sketch using mists and sequins to create the splatter element. Tess cut down her original background to create a smaller canvas to work on - all the white space was a little daunting for her, though she needn't have worried. Her layout looks wonderful!
