One sketch; two layouts by Ingeborg Dijkstra

If I am stuck for inspiration I sometimes use a sketch to get me started. Today I want to show you a sketch I made (it is only the second or third time I ever made a sketch, so please forgive me my 'beginner style')). I also would like to show you the two layouts that I made using the same sketch. You can safely download a larger picture of the sketch HERE (of course it is free, but feel free to email me a picture of your layout if you have used my sketch ... )

The photos of both layouts are made on the same day; the day our boys had a 'fancy dress' day at school. I don't mind using the same sketch more than once, especially if the layouts end up in different albums! Our son Tom dressed up as a soldier and our son Rick dressed up as a rock star. I have taken photos of the different stages of the layouts.

First I cut the patterned papers and put them on the layouts.

I used a new set of Tim Holtz stamps in the corners of both layouts. The sketch shows flourishes, but obviously you can be creative and use different shapes too!

I added a border using a template and I added the photos and a title.

I added journaling and some more embellishments and this is the end result of both layouts:

And two close up pictures of the journaling:
