I created these 2-page layouts recently while participating in the Sketch Support Class taught by Allison Davis for My Creative Classroom. The class lasted 5 weeks and covered Basic Approaches to sketches in Week 1, then addressed how to alter Photos, Paper, Embellishments, Titles and Journaling. The course concluded with the Finishing Touches that take layouts from good to great. Very comprehensive!
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Lettering: Jillibean Soup, My Mind's Eye, Cosmos Cricket; Embellishments: My Mind's Eye
Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts; Everything Else: Basic Grey Hopscotch
I enjoyed the class. Allison's insightful teaching and helpful comments on the message boards and class gallery were invaluable. The course content included video presentations, PDF's to download, and weekly assignments. If you want to improve your skills at two-page layouts, or just want to be able to see more possibilities from any sketch, I would recommend this class. The next round of Sketch Support begins on September 20th. You can register for the class here.
