Sketchbook 4| No. 6

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Today I want to share a totally Jamie but not at all Jamie layout. It's for Shimelle's Mixing Styles challenge.

What's me about it? The color combo & how I use paper and embellishments that coordinate nay I say match the colors in the photo.

What's not me about it? The sweet & simple design. I used Sketch No. 6 for this page and followed it nearly to a T. No extra embellishing and really not much moving around of the sketch elements.

I so totally love this quirky color combo. The orangey pink of my dress goes great with the SC/Sassafras patterned paper. I used the teal of the pool for my journaling block and got to utilize that great washi as well. The floor boards from the deck were mimicked in the wood veneer frame. And I used yellow, the color of my straw, as an accent color.

Have I mentioned how great the City of Lights kit goes with my favorite instagram filter? It's the Walden filter by the way.

I just have to say, although not my usual style, I do love the calming effect of this page. Or maybe I'm just reminded of the wonderful relaxing time I had that weekend. Was it only a few weekends ago?!

cheers & besos,
