August 29th Sketch for SOUS

Hello all! Happy Friday and I can tell you that I am looking forward to the long weekend. So school started this week and we are slowly getting into the school routine. All the activities have not started for my boy yet but it is just a matter of time.

So today I am up with a sketch inspiration from SOUS. The sketch was created by the very talented Nanne from SOUS.

                                
And here is my interpretation. The first change I made was to make it an 8.5 x 11 layout. They seem to be the rage these days and a lot of people seem to be adopting this style. I think I am going to do more of these especially when there is a single photo on the layout. It forces you to think a little different and I think I am liking the change after making tons of 12x12 layouts. Also the advantage with this size is that you can print directly on your main cardstock if you plan ahead. For this layout I used 4x4 photo of my son performing at the battle of the bands contest a few months ago. There were a bunch of bands from our area competing in this contest. My son's band didn't win a prize but it was a great exposure for them. They were also the youngest kids on stage.


All the patterned paper, stamp, sequins and the vellum are from the Studio Calico kits (my absolute favorite thing). The gold stars which did not photograph very well and also from Studio Calico. The stickers are from one of Amy Tan's collections.
Be sure to play along to enter into the drawing for a prize from limeCitron. Can't wait to see how you interpret this sketch.
