Scrapbooked with Layers of LOVE for Unscripted Sketches #242

Happy Monday! Today I'm posting my Sketch-It Saturday project featuring Unscripted Sketches #242... and wouldn't you know it - I made a scrapbook page! It's not often I do these and I really "LOVE" how this one turned out.

I had a new photo from a party we attended a week ago and it's scrapbook worthy! So I printed it out on my Zink Happy printer and got out the mat scraps and got to layering.

Starting out with some leftover cranberry cardstock from a set of 12 handmade books I was hired to make for Christmas, I came across this 12" x 12" piece of vellum with words "your Love" overall... and my "ONE TOUCH RULE" kicked in.

This week's sketch really was a challenging one - but instead of a circle I thought my stash of paper doilies might be a nice variation... and because of the variety of heart sizes I needed to go BIG! So a scrapbook page it is!


My vellum had a 1/2" cut into it and torn away on one edge... what to do??? Patch over it. The book project had some torn strips leftover that were misted with an iridescent mist and this was perfect to conceal the missing section of paper. I learned way back when from my scrapbooking store that scrapbook pages don't have to be perfect {repeating to myself in the process} and I paid no mind to the torn strip I used to cover up the missing area. It works for me! To balance things I included a little bit of the same going off the right hand side, too!

The largest heart doily was red, but I really loved the varying texture of the backside so I put the red side down {plus the fact that I tore it trying to separate them - no waste}. I'm so thrilled to finally get this vellum out of the paper bin and used in a proper way! The layered Jenni Bowlin Studio tickets {yes also a hoarded item} went perfectly as an accent and to draw attention away from the patched area. 

What is Sketch it Saturdays at Unscripted Sketches? Every Saturday morning a new sketch is posted for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way, as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation! And everyone is invited to join in the fun... and post your creation on their page via inlinkz for all the world to see!
