May Sketch

The May sketch is something new to try... if you haven't printed out a 12x8 print, now is the time to try it! It really is a stunning way to showcase a special photo. It even makes the most un-exciting shots seem epic. And this sketch is so versatile! Turn it on it's side and add another 12x12 for a two page spread.

Below, I used the sketch to scrap this photo of the first time I got to hold my daughter. The title is the number 27, the day she was born. I used some DMC floss to create a divider between the embellished side and the journaling side.

Here's the sketch alternative. I just turned it on it's side and added three more photos (2 full 4x6's and one 4x4) to the page. The photos are on the top half, and the patterned papers take up the lower half. The big photo has great negative space for adding the title.

If you don't have an 8x12 photo on hand or don't want to go that route, here's another way to use this sketch with multiple photos! Lisa Kremer used the brown cardstock to unite her photos into a single block to imitate the sketch. She also did her title on the lower third and did her journaling in strips along the bottom of the photos.

Need help finding places to get your photos printed at 8x12? Try these websites, for starters:
Costco @ $1.49 each (this is where I get mine printed)
Ritz @ $4.49 each

This is a great sketch. I love that it can be a multi pic page too, which would be easier for me. (No costco to print a 12x8).
