Hello everyone. Christin here with a PageMaps sketch. I love working with sketch as a jumping off point for creating layouts. For me it often takes a little time to get creative after I sit down to scrap and sketches are a great help.
I often follow a sketch pretty literal, but often with a few minor tweaks. The biggest differences is that I didn’t add the two borders at the top and at the bottom.
I have a pet peeve and that is that I don’t go very well with linear design so my tweaks are things I do to go out of the box (literally). For me linear designs forces me to strive for perfect lines and that is hard to combine with mixed media that always warps the pages a little. The steps I have made here is to add some watercolors on the white paper behind the photos and to add the two spider webs on each side.
Another change I did was that I added stitching to square off both the with area and some of the smaller squares and that I kept the small circles untouched. The circles in the ephemera kit fit perfectly into the lunar circles.
I didn’t want a big title steel the focus so I used a journaling tag as a title.
