February Two-Page Sketch

You can download and print this sketch over at the Sketch Support blog.

Here's what Allison says about the sketch:

"One thing I love about photo blocks like on this sketch is that you have endless photo combinations to use. I look at it like a puzzle and try to find different sizes that will measure up to the same overall size of the photo block. There is even plenty of room to add in some vertical 4 x 6" photos and increase the height of the photo block."

With apologies to the Iron Chef, I created this page about the places we ate and the kinds of food we sampled on our trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula last summer.
Just a few minor changes made to the sketch. It really suited the photos I wanted to scrap!
  • mounted my photo collage on white cardstock, added word stickers
  • inked the edges and sewed around the patterned paper background
  • moved the journaling to the RH page and used a larger journaling block
  • omitted the flower embellishments
