Combining two challenges–typography and pattern–I made this scrapbook layout titled 'Work' with a hand-lettered background which incorporated my large title as well.

SUNDAY SKETCH SERIES NO. 42

THIS WEEK'S SKETCH

THIS WEEK IS A SUPER SIMPLE SKETCH AT HEART, BUT IT CAN BE JAZZED UP IN ANY NUMBER OF WAYS! I CHOSE TO MAKE MY LAYOUT SPECIAL BY MAKING MY TITLE A BOLD BRUSH SCRIPT. I THEN BALANCED THAT WITH BRIGHT PHOTOS THAT HELD THEIR OWN AND SIMPLE JOURNALING ON VELLUM. THIS LAYOUT, A DEDICATION TO MY COUSIN WHO GOT MARRIED EARLIER THIS WEEK, IS MOSTLY ABOUT THE SENTIMENTAL, THEREFORE THE PAGE HAS MORE JOURNALING THAN I WOULD NORMALLY DO. IF YOU CUT SOME OF THE JOURNALING OUT, SIMPLY TAKE THIS SPACE TO EMBELLISH MORE, OR MIX THINGS UP WITH STITCHING OR PAINT, PERHAPS! TO SEE HOW I TURNED THIS SKETCH INTO MY LAYOUT 'TRUST LOVE MARRIAGE', KEEP ON SCROLLING! >>>
