When I'm browsing layouts, I see them as sketches. Now a sketch is a vague outline of where your paper and embellishments go. You can be as creative with it as you want. Well this is my first layout that I have created from an actual sketch, shown below. I picked it up in the scrapbook.com gallery.
I changed it around a little bit, but mostly followed the outline, to make it work for this layout. The flourish is a one of a kind creation that I put together using prima crystals and prima felt. I just cut the felt pattern apart and pieced together a new one. Then to finish it off I added the prima crystals. I'm pretty pleased with all the detail and how it came together. I'll definitely be creating from more actual sketches in the future!
A new layout can be found in my scrapbook shop. www.paperprincess34.etsy.com along with my newest sale running through the end of the month. Purchases of 35 or more will receive free shipping. See the shop for the selection and all the details.
