Sketch Monday with Izzy


Hi, everyone!  It’s Izzy Anderson on the blog today with a layout and card based on the same sketch.

1 FP DUO side by side - BAR

My projects were inspired by the Strips patterned paper from the Down By The Shore collection.

I started my layout by cutting the strips apart and rearranging them on the navy blue (B side) of Down By The Shore Saltwater paper.

I left a little space between each strip so the navy blue would show through, then added zig zag stitching to tie each row together. I love using the strips like this. It’s a great way to add bits of color, pattern and pop to my projects.

The patterned paper strips form the background of the sketch, then I added other elements to complete the design.

The Sunshine patterned paper is a happy backdrop for a summer page.  The title piece and banner die cut set a fun tone and the tags provide the perfect place to add phrase stickers, alphas and decorative elements.

The card follows the same design as the layout: paper strips on the bottom with a larger patterned paper piece on top.  To finish the card, I added an embellished bag and tag combo, similar to those on the layout. Flair from the new What A Wonderful Day collection adds a fun pop of color and depth.
