Hello everybody.This layout is probably the longest layout in the making I've ever had.I started gathering the papers I wanted to use for this photo,right after I finished the previous layout(and I literally mean right after) and then...I was lost!!!I cut my patterned paper one way,I cut it a different way(always ending up with smaller pieces lol) but nothing...nothing struck me as right,nothing seemed ok.I was becoming more and more frustrated with it(more than once I had the urge to take both the papers and the photo and tear it into little pieces).What made it even worse is the fact that I love this specific photo and when I found it I couldn't wait to play with it!

Then all of a sudden I remembered a map with sketches I had downloaded a while back from Scrapbooksetc.Turned out that was my salvation,since I found the perfect sketch in there!!Look at me,the person who used to shun sketches now can't scrap without them...gotta love the irony!!

Here's my play on sketch #128.My camera isn't very good,so the colours look a bit muted,they are very vibrant(closer to the ones in the last picture).I hope you like it!


  1. Ειρήνη μου πολύ όμορφη. Μου αρέσει αυτό το "μπούκωμα" κάτω και αυτή η "αδειοσύνη" επάνω.Είδα το σκετς αλλά η υλοποίησή του μου αρέσει πολύ περισσότερο.

  2. Ειρήνη τι όμορφη σύνθεση! Τελικά τα sketches είναι χρήσιμα.... εγώ τώρα άρχισα τις συνθέσεις και χωρίς sketch μου έιναι δύσκολο να "στήσω" ένα layout!

  3. μου αρεσει πολυ!!!ολο το στησιμο και τα χρωματα εντυπωσιακα!!μου αρεσουν τα blocks στην κατω δεξια μερια με τις λεξεις!

  4. ωραίο το αποτέλεσμα Ειρήνη!!!
    μου αρέσει το journaling μέσα στον κύκλο και τα μπλόκ με τις λέξεις δίπλα στη φωτό!!!!
