It's Monday, which means a new sketch at Nuts About Sketches. This week it is a single page sketch with space for lots of photos- just my style!
I decided to make a layout about a Christmas Party we went to a couple of years ago. The twist on this party was that you were supposed to dress up like a Christmas Carol. My husband, brother-in-law and I dressed up as "We Three Kings."
This page came together pretty quickly. I used a mask I bought recently. I used it with spray mist on the cardstock and with modeling paste on the patterned paper.
I fussy cut the ornament from a sheet of We R Memory Keepers paper, as I have done several times before. I decided to write my journaling directly on the layout because I didn't want to cover up the patterned paper.
I've seen several layouts recently with elements that were recessed. I decided to try that on this page. I cut the circles from the red patterned paper and then adhered my photos to the cardstock while lining them up with the holes. To raise the patterned paper, I used a piece of chipboard under the entire patterned paper. I cut the same holes into that and then adhered the paper to the chipboard. It turned out looking a little like a picture frame.
