Sketch Interpretation

I was looking for something to create the other day that wasn’t a work commitment, and then I came across a lovely sketch by Kelly-Ann Oosterbeek in the current issue of Australian Scrapbook Ideas Magazine.  I loved the beautiful layered and feminine layouts that Kelly-Ann had created with her sketch, and thought it might be nice to challenge myself to use the layout for a clean and masculine layout.  So here is the resulting layout…

My Man by Alicia Redshaw

I have been quite restrained with this layout with some simple misting on the background, distressing and inked edges being the only Mixed Media touches.  I have to admit that it was hard to stop at just this, and I am so happy with the results.

I flipped Kelly-Ann’s sketch vertically before starting my layout.  I have also used the Kaiser Curiosity range that has been selling very fast at Scrapbook Fantasies.  This range is particularly feminine, and I was thrilled to create a masculine layout with it.  Keep an eye on my Classes-to-Go page for a class kit you can purchase that uses this range for another masculine layout.
