Sketch by Tanyah Payne & Layout by Annie Zorzo

It's the Scrap n Craft with T Retreat Weekend!  I saw some of the things that everyone was going to get up to on the Retreat and they looked fab!  But, if like me, you weren't able to go, here is a little something that the girls did on the retreat.

Tanyah made up this fantastic sketch for the girls to do...
And I came up with a layout for it.  But not content with doing things just as is, I had to jiggle it around a  little bit.  This is something that I think some people might have trouble with but it need not be.  A sketch is a starting point and you can jump from there in a number of directions.

This is how I interpreted it....
1.  Rotated all the papers clockwise so the long thin strip was going up and down as this suited the landscape photo that I wanted to use as the main photo.
2.  Rotated the two smaller rectangles, and decided one would be a smaller 2x3inch photo.
3.  Moved the journalling strips over to be above the main photo.
4.  Kept the title, string and flowers where they were.

For the actual layout, I used

So if your not familiar with using sketches, give it a go.  Use the whole thing or as something to jump-start your layout.  Which ever way you go, we'd love to see your interpretation of the sketch in the gallery!

See you next week!

Hi Tanyah,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend retreat. I am sure that you would be totally exhausted this morning but with lots of happy retreaters.
Keep smiling
