Lights, Camera, Action!

Sketchabilities Reveal Day:

It is time for the reveal of another beautiful sketch from Sketchabilities' site plus 20 interpretations of it for your viewing pleasure. This is me and Jenn the night before a scrapbooking convention showing our anticipation of the event. Actually Jenn likes to take jumping photos in front of places she visits, but her photo which I took was too blurry to scrap. Her photo of me jumping turned out okay so that is the action alluded to in the title.

My interpretation of sketch #48 from Sketchabilities

Here is the sketch itself:

  • I added an extra photo and lengthened the photo size. 
  • I simplified the background die cut shapes into rectangles since there was a lot of other shapes and movement and I didn't want it to compete. 
  • Instead of rhinestone flourishes, I hand stitched them with metallic thread. I moved the title along side the main flourish, and added journaling to its original place.

  • I added an extra string of lanterns because it matched the first word of my title. I fussy cut them from a Jillibean Soup patterned paper, added some Glossy Accents and Stickles on them, and hand stitched a string across the top so they weren't floating in the air. I wanted them to be anchored so I added some decorative borders vertically.

  • Instead of flowers and hearts, I added a camera to match the second word of my title. I also fussy cut it from a JBS patterned paper. I added Glossy Accents on the lens and viewfinder to make it look more like glass.

  • Above the horizontal scallop strip, I added an extra filmstrip paper. To continue the filmstrip design, I cut off the edges and added it to the photos to give those a filmstrip look too. 

If you like this layout sketch, feel free to use it and load your creation into Sketchabilities' gallery. 

Thanks for looking,
