I'm on a roll. The last challenge posted today at big picture and I only have two more challenges to go before class closes on the 9th.
Left brain design challenge is to use the provided sketch to create a layout with one larger image and numerous smaller, supplementary photos
I stayed fairly close to the sketch as I did my smaller photos about a quarter inch larger then the sketch. Other then that and a couple of embellishments it's right on.
For the side bar I used close up photos of Aunt Diane with her finished afghan as well as mounted the photos to give them more weight. The journal tag reads " Aunt Diane's Afghan- this beautiful blanket was started by Diane when she retired. It was put aside during cancer treatments, but is finally finished in May 2012"
I added a few embellishments to the bottom corner to hide that I had to patch pieces of scrap together.
For the right brain challenge is to design a layout that uses at least three different shapes without making a visual mess. I used a creative scrapper sketch for some inspiration and then added to it.
The original sketch is from Creative scrapper sketch volume #1 and is intended for a vertical 4X6 photo. Here's a sneak peek
Circles, stars and rectangles, but you'll have to come back because
I am saving full view of the right brain layout for my lasting memories layout this coming Sunday. .
Now onto starting and finishing the product and embellishment challenges
This is 23/50 in my DT sister scrap busting challenge.
