Here is the sketch
& here is my take on the sketch
As you can gather from the name of my blog - I do some digital crafting & this page has been produced in Serif Craft Artist creating an 8" x 8" page. What I love about this software is the way you can make the page look like it has layers. I have so many pages to create & if I tried to do them all hybrid paper craft they would never get done. So a lot of them are created digitally.
To create this page I rotated the sketch a little because my photos are landscape not portrait as in the sketch. I then chose a slightly decorative page from among the kits I have & used the transparency tool to fade it away. I then put the photograph of the complete bouquet I had been given onto the background & stretched it to a larger square afterwards using the transparency tool again to merge the 2 layers. These 2 layers then became my complete background paper.
Next I chose some frames that make the photos look like they have torn edges, & gave the top photo decoupage treatment. Some items have had the shadow tool applied so that they look as if they are raised from the background. Also the title, ribbon & small flowers I have embossed to give a shiny finish.
These sketch challenges are brilliant for me as slowly they are giving me the inspiration to get all my photos sorted. All I have to do now is have a printing session & put them into albums.
