It is time for SCHOOL! We love to take those first day of school photos whether our kids are able to go to their local school or like us having virtual school! I am sharing how to create a that first day of school layout!
Did you know there are some fabulous sites that you can get layouts and card sketches to work with? Creative Scrapbooker Magazine has a “free” sketch layout each month but there are other sites like A Cherry on Top or Page Maps that has both card and layout sketches to name a couple more. Some also have challenges using sketches!
When you work with layouts you can go literal with the sketch or use it as a jumping off point like I did with my layout! I added a collection of journal cards and paper to create the patter of thirds from the layout.
Added a place for a photo where the Title is shown.
Add small cards and border strip where the flowers are shown to be.
Add a the school banner from the Scholastic to top of layout using pop dots and natural twine bows.
If you aren’t a Scrapbooker that is okay; you can use the same sketch idea to create a card or maybe some altered work. Really a sketch is the jumping off place for your creative style. Enjoy, Pam
