Ruth Lake and a Sketch

More Scraps!  I have been using up the leftovers from my kits and have been quite pleased with the cute layouts I have been turning out.  I am notorious for having a ton of layouts with NO PHOTOS on them (I know!) and so I have been printing out a bunch of photos that have been lying in wait on my hard drive.  The photos from this layout are more taken from our trip to Ruth Lake a couple years ago.  I used this SKETCH:

I created this layout above.  I have been using a lot of sketches lately and find that it is very easy to use them as a springboard for my creativity.  I have even started out with a sketch, and then the process of my layout turns into a finished product that looks nothing like the sketch I started out with.

Here, I used my trusty signo white gel pen from Stampin' Up!  I probably have at least five of these amongst all of my scrappy supplies.  I love how consistent and smooth they write.  I used it to create the faux stitching around the banner embellishment.
More signo used here to outline my photos and add definition and fun to the page.  Don't you just love these puffy stickers?  Too cute!
More details:  Signo detailing, check out the awesome tone-on-tone patterns in these papers.  I love that fresh look it gives.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
