Great Match | Freckled Fawn September 2017 Sketch | The Nerd Nest 2

I love that Freckled Fawn is doing a monthly sketch now and I wanted to jump in and play with the September sketch!

The sketch featured a large photo with a smaller supporting photo, so I looked through my folder for a story I wanted to tell that would fit the sketch. I settled on a photo of Jake and I that I loved. We’re wearing matching shirts, which I thought was a silly accident but turned out to be intentional on Jake’s part to annoy his older brother–hah!

I made a few changes to the sketch. I used a larger square photo: 7×7 instead of 5×7, and changed up the dimensions of the patterned paper a bit based on the size of the scraps that I had.

But the embellishments stayed pretty close to the same! I used lots of elements from the September kit: washi underneath the smaller photo, puffy icon stickers for the heart and star shapes, and the black script puffy alpha for the title. White Vintage Doily Acetate Diecuts were a nice subtle touch against the white cardstock.

For my journaling, I used a ruler first to add lines, then wrote it down. I like free-handed journaling often, but floating in white space it was more of a design element, so I decided it needed a bit more structure.

This was a quick and fun layout and I’m so glad to showcase a photo of Jake and I that I love!
