It's July...

It's July and that means it's time to share a new sketch from the wonderfully talented Lucy Chesna of My Sketch World!  This month brings a great sketch and I had some fun playing with some brand new Echo Park goodies, too!

Here's my take on it:

Here's a close up of the photo and the title work.  This title incorporates two things I love to do:  mixing my alphas and running the title onto a photo.  I just love the effect!

Here's the sketch that this layout is based on.  You can see that I focused on the four strips and incorporated the journaling strips, the large flower and the title placement.  One of the things I love about using sketches is how you can pick and choose what inspires you and make it your own. Lucy's sketches are particularly perfect for that!
You can go HERE to see what the rest of the team did with the sketch!  There are some fantastic layouts there!  Way to go, ladies!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be back soon with more good stuff to share!


  1. I like how you matted the strips to really make the colours pop - such a happy feeling layout! I love the long title, too!
