As Seen In Scrapbook Creations Magazine Issue 97

A while back I was asked to take part in the Sketch Challenge for Scrapbook Creations Magazine 
Excited that I can now show you my double page layout.
Normally a 2 page sketch would scare the pants of me
But once I realised that I could still scrap “my way” and still stay true to the sketch I was right.
So I started with the background

Adding some texture paste and colour to my trusty black cardstock
Then I pulled out pattern paper and embellishments

Some were subtle and got lost a little in the magazine photo
Like the bird paper clip

And the “refashioned L”
Made out of a “T”
The wooden alphas were altered with ink
The wood veneer arrows were altered with the liquid pearls.

I had fun mixing the embellishments.
Some I had been hoarding
And some I just love!

I love how it all came together.
I love that I could write this story down.
It’s a day I know she will remember forever!

Did I mention I love how it all came together??
Because I do!

Do you like 2 page layouts?
What’s the thing you like about them?
And if not… what is it about them that you find daunting??

  1. Wow, what a wonderful double pager. I just love your chicken wire stencil work and all the gorgeous pops of embellishments. Congrats on the publication, very well deserved.

  2. I love how you did this two-pager in your own style. The bright colors really pop against the black background.

  3. This 2 page spread is WONDERFUL!!!!! I LOVE that the crow paper clip is sitting right there on top of the page- I love the triangles print and how you included all the colors from that print in the rest of your layout- this is fabulous!!!

  4. Looking good Sharmaine!
