Zoo Fun Day | September Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! It’s Robbie today to share my take on the cute 2 page sketch. I’m another one who doesn’t do many 2 page layouts anymore. I find that I don’t have enough photos of most things to support 2 pages. What I do love about 2 page layouts is that there is more opportunity to share the story of the photos. On my layout, I used 5 photos instead of 7 photos, but even without journaling, you can clearly see what was going on in this trip to the zoo.

The linear look of the sketch left me lots of space to add my own touches. Simple punched border strips added a bit of flair around the basic squares and bordered the set of photos without taking away from them.

For my layout, I felt that the larger flowers that I tried were taking away from my photos and throwing off the balance of my layout. I chose to use all small flowers to accent my layout and leave the focus where it should be, on the photos.

I love to mix up different elements and the 3 Birds Stickers give so many options! The other thing that I wanted to try to show with this close-up is the way I altered the height of the photos. As I said before, I raised the larger photos with cardboard. As my layout came together, I realized that I had all the height on the page at each end. Raising one of the smaller one’s brought back the balance.
