Here is what Diane made and what she had to say about her process:
"Although my layout looks nothing like the sketch, I did start out with the sketch in mind. My original plan was to use one photo with a large title to the right of the photo and substitute the triangles with circles.
As I started to cut circles I decided I wanted the circles to look more like an extension of the lens flare in the photo which resulted in small scattered confetti.
The large strip of paper underneath the 3 photos in the sketch was replaced with small stripes and I finished it off with a summer quote from Pinterest. I love seeing how people interpret sketches. Don't be afraid to let it take you in a different direction, they are meant to inspire and spark ideas, regardless of the outcome.
I tried to be true to the sketch because I generally do use a lot of white space and I wanted to use the sketch as inspiration and get away from my usual layout. I even used the little triangles in the sketch as triangles. I cut them from the 6x6 paper pad from Sweet Shoppe, and they are really tiny!
I used nearly all of the black or grey patterns in the Sweet Shoppe and Pinwheel collections — I love how they mixed and matched so well together. The Cameo came in handy for cutting my title in only the colors I wanted.
The layered word bubbles from the Pinwheel - Flip Flops pattern paper and the Label stickers added some fun layering to all of the patterns on the page.
Supplies: Pinwheel Collection (Pattern Paper - Jump Rope, Flip Flops, 6x6 Tiny Tablet,Label Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers), Sweet Shoppe Collection (Pattern Paper - Licorice Whip, Strawberries & Cream, 6x6 Tiny Tablet)
I hope you've been inspired to use the sketch, and who knows, maybe even try adding a splash of color to your page, too!
