You have probably already seen the sketch but just in case you need your memory refreshed, here it is;
You will see if you watch my process video that follows, this is not what I originally did. I am okay with white space but wanted desperately to fill those HUGE gaps of white space. I originally did do that and then pulled it apart and used the frame split on the diagonal as "photo corners" instead. It's still white space but it contains the layout and closes off those corners in the same proportions as the outer most layers.
That "square" wasn't actually square - I had to manipulate a bit for some symmetry. By using my ATG the digital cut file isn't fully stuck down and allows for some fun movement in the layout.
The "odd" shape of journaling spot on the layout adds a little bit of a weight change from the "heavier" photos and the "lighter" journaling spot. It works well with the white background and is an even weight distribution with the arrangement of the patterned papers.
I created a process video as I was constructing this layout. I would love for you to join me on my YouTube channel and subscribe if you like what you see and don't already subscribe. It's so fun to watch a layout evolve and come together, don't you think?
I hope you are inspired by my process and layout and hope you will share your take on this sketch by adding your link to the March sketch challenge on the blog or on our Instagram page using hashtag #creatingwithsketch and # CSsketch304
