March One-Page Sketch


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


Any sketch with banners and patterned paper strips is a winner in my book! As Allison says, banners are a great way to take a simple strip and give it more detail and interest with little time and effort. She shares several tips on getting that notched edge to look good over at the Sketch Support blog.
I stayed close to the sketch this time around, with only a few slight changes:

  • ran the title down onto the side of the photo
  • used spray ink on the background
  • added patterned paper strips on three edges of the cardstock



If you use this sketch to create a layout, please consider adding it to the Sketch Support Flickr Gallery!

  4. Ooh, I love that sketch, May have to give that one a try. Love the title running down the edge like that. Really gives the effect of 'lingering.'

  5. Love this, Sue! Awesome color combo. I love that you stitched along the top of the banners. I've pinned quite a few long banner layouts recently. I absolutely love the look!

  7. I love this layout Sue. The beautiful colors pulled from the photos are lovely. Banners are so in right now, and super simple to make actually. Yours are great. I need to incorporate this element in my layouts more before it's a thing of the past! tfs!
