Homework No 1 - Completed

20:52 Karen 13 Comments

Homework no 1 completed and I am very happy with the results.  I took my sketch and from my check list I have included many of my favourite techniques.

  • There is a tiny bit of doodling (which I forgot to add to my list)
  • One (very) large photo
  • Kraft tags
  • Horizontal strips across the whole of the layout
  • Very dimential
  • Journaling strips
  • Clustered elements
  • Buttons
  • Layering

Apologies for the rubbish photo - dark when I leave for work and dark when I get back
so taking a decent photo at any time other than the weekend is impossible!

I have loved the process of designing the sketch around the things I like on the pages I love the most and then turning the sketch into this page.


Now I just have to get the next lot of homework done before Kirsty sets us some more!


Reasons to be cheerful:-

1. It's Friday!

2. I am bathed and in my pj's and off to bed as soon as this post is finished.

3. The lay-in I am anticipating tomorrow.
