July 2013 Sketch

Tips for Using Sketches

  • You can turn a sketch around and use it sideways, upside down or even flip it back to front!
  • A line on a sketch can be a Piece of Paper or a row of Brads or Stitching etc etc
  • Flowers on a sketch can be a changed to Star’s for a boy’s page etc and vice versa.
  • A photo square etc. is basically for your
    photo space, for e.g.: 4 small photo squares can be swapped for one
    large photo and vice versa, or you can use twice as many smaller photos.
  • Or you can even replace a photo square for a piece of paper or journaling etc!
  • Remember you can also enlarge or shrink the sketch design on your page to get a different look
  • The design of the sketch is a starting
    point to inspire you! Go for it! Remember the sketches are not set in
    stone, it just your interpretation of them.
