Simple Stories & Sketches Part 1

Friday was the first of my July posts on the Papermaze blog - I have been using the delightful Simple Stories - Bloom & Grow collection.  My post also considers the use of sketches as a source of inspiration. Please see the blog for more details.

Here is my first layout using a sketch from Page Maps (March 2016)

As you can see from the sketch below, I have remained fairly true to the plan this time, with only a few of my own little twists. I used the stitching but added flowers where hearts were indicated. I used the patterned papers to create blocks of colour in a similar pattern to the sketch. Instead of two small photos, I used one much larger one and I changed the position of my title.

I used the following from the Bloom & Grow Collection - The base is Bee Happy, for the blocks I used both sides of Green Dot / Yellow Dot, both sides of Let it GrowPuddle Jumper and various bits from 4x4 and 6x4 Vertical Elements Sheet. I also added some elements from the Bits & Pieces pack, the Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers sheet and some Enamel Dots. Finally I added some American Craft Foam Thickers for part of the title.

Back soon with my second layout using a sketch from SBC (Scrapbook challenges).
Take a look at the Papermaze blog too.
Thanks for looking
