Storyline | Using a Sketch
Hello everybody, let’s talk Storyline!
It is no secret by now that if you are looking for an incredibly effortless way to scrapbook your memories, Storyline is the answer.
What is even better is that there is a beautiful compilation FREE Storyline E-Book that was released earlier this year that further SIMPLIFIES the process while delivering massive inspiration. Talk about the best of both worlds colliding! Plus…who doesn’t want to see Heidi’s pages up close and personal? They are always nothing short of amazing….and inspirational for sure.
After reading through the Storyline E-Book I decided to try out one of the sketches on a recent layout. Here is the sketch that I chose:
This sketch really spoke to me for a variety of reasons. First, it utilizes multiple photos on page which I love. Second, I adore anything in a “grid” layout. Third, I love the journaling. These 3 elements beautifully come together so well.
So, from this sketch above I created this layout:
You can see by comparing the two the framework is very similar yet there are subtle differences that still make each page unique and different from one another. When working with sketches I think it is very important to make it work for you and what you are wanting to create.
For instance, Heidi created her page on a 12×12 page. I chose to do mine on an 8.5 x 11 page.
Heidi did her journaling in her own handwriting, whereas I used my We R Memory Keepers Typecast to add type text to mine.
The photos I used are also smaller (3×4 size photos) and I utilized photo corners.
However when it all comes together they both achieve the same goal. Telling the story.
I love the ability to use a sketch to alleviate creative pressure when some days you just don’t feel like being creative or having to think! This E-Book is a wonderful tool in that it serves to both educate and inspire when it comes to telling your story.
