Birds of a Feather

Not often, but every once in a while - I do a quick & easy layout with just stickers & paper!  No stamping, no distressing, no embellies - - keepin' it simple!  It is the only way I'm ever going to get all those Rubbermaid buckets full of photos scrapped!!

My other time saving technique  . . . SKETCHES!!!  I would say 90% of my layouts begin with a sketch of some kind!  My favourite sources for sketches - CTMH's How-To Books, Sketch blogs (I have several listed on my blog sidebar), and magazines (I especially love the sketches in Creating Keepsakes - lots of multi-photo 2 page spreads!).  I find the 'where to start' with a layout to be the hardest part so using sketches saves me soooo much time!   (Before I discovered sketches & patterns I used to sit & stare at my pile of photos and papers for endless amounts of time before I could move forward with a direction or idea of what to do!!)

So - my artwork for you today is just such a layout - - just stickers & paper & based on a gorgeous sketch (this one is from Sassy Lil' Sketches)!

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):
Mayberry Level 2 Paper Pack
Mayberry Level 1 Scrapbooking Kit
