Sketch Week, Part 1

A new sketch, a new sponsor, and five new layouts. It must be Sketch Week! And a new addition for this week, I have a guest designer that is participating in my place one day this week.

The sketch, from my personal sketch collection, that will be used as the starting point for all five layouts this week.


• This sketch is now available to download. All you have to do is click on the "Printable Sketches" link on the right side of my blog, it will take you to the downloads page where you can download and print the sketch.

This is sketch is such a fun one to play around with! It's got a great area for the photos so they take center stage and then a playful arrangement of papers. There are so many different ways to play around with those hills that, even though you might not realize it just looking at the sketch, I'm sure you could fit this sketch to almost any theme.

Layout #1 - Front Yard Exploring


Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: BasicGrey (Marjolaine); Felt tree and bird: BasicGrey; Alphabet: Prima (front), American Crafts (yard), and BasicGrey (exploring)

The first thing I want to talk about on the layout and the sketch are the hills. Don't let the hills scare you away from this sketch. They really are easy to make! There are several ways you can accomplish the look...

To make mine I used the BoBunny ruler that bends and bent the ruler to the shape I wanted my hills to have. It's super easy to use and makes creating wavy lines a breeze. If you don't have that ruler you could just hand draw them. Here a few of my sketching and drawing tips:

• I try to keep my hand and arm loose.
• When drawing the line I do it quickly. It seems like when I go too slow it doesn't come out the way I want it to. It's almost like I over think it.
• After I have the line drawn I go back and fix any areas I don't like.

If you don't trust your drawing skills then try using removable adhesive and ribbon. Add the adhesive to the ribbon and adhere it to the patterned paper in a wavy line. Once you have the ribbon down just trace along the edge of it with a pencil. Then remove the ribbon, rub off the removable adhesive, and cut along the line.

Another thing I want to mention, when you are piecing your layout together the hills can look funny at first. Especially if this is something you don't do often. Trust me though, once you get the whole layout together it will look great! Don't worry if yours doesn't end up looking exactly as they do on the sketch. You could use this sketch over and over and the chances of the hills looking the same on each layout would be pretty slim.

• Variation 1
I added hand stitching along the top, wavy edge of the hills to help define the edges and add some dimension. It helped to make the different layers of hills more realistic and actually look like the hill in the back is far away from the one in the front. If you aren't a fan of stitching you could always use ribbon or Memory Thread for the same look.

• Variation 2
This isn't much of a variation but still something to point out. The trees on the sketch are circles and I went with a different shape. I loved the shape of the BasicGrey felt tree and decided to create my own to match it. To do that I traced around the top of the BasicGrey tree and then cut it out. I also added hand stitching to the edge to match the BasicGrey tree.

• Variation 3
Sometimes I like creating a scene on my layout. Since I already had the hills and trees I thought it would be fun to add a few extras to complete the outdoor theme. On the left page I added a BasicGrey felt bird and then on the right page a butterfly. Don't be afraid to add extras to the sketch. It's a fantastic way to give it a unique look and it can add a finishing touch that completes the layout.

I'm very excited to announce the sponsor for September Sketch Week - BasicGrey! Look at this awesome giveaway from BasicGrey for Sketch Week!


The giveaway includes collection packs of their five new lines: Marjolaine, Wander, Jovial, Pyrus, and Curio. Each collection pack comes with 18 double sided papers, one sheet of coordinating alphabet stickers, and one sheet of coordinating cardstock stickers. And as always the winner of the giveaway will also receive a copy of Sketches for Scrapbooking, volume choice is all yours.

Here's the rundown of how the giveaway works: I'll be posting everyday, Monday - Friday. All week you'll have a chance to leave a comment and next Monday I'll post the winners. You can leave more than one comment through the week to be eligible but not on the same day. (five days = five chances to win!)

Happy Monday!

Penny Peck said...

As usual - love your work and your sharing how you did it!

Amy from KC said...

Rolling hills on layouts tend to give me a problem, even though I love the way they look. I've been tempted to buy that BoBunny ruler before, so I may have to go and get one! I'd be interested in a list of the tools that you love to use...your go to ones that you use again and again...Ali.

And just a shout out to those of you thinking about taking Ali's class at My Creative Classroom: It is fantastic! I am enrolled in September's session, and am loving it. I highly recommend it.

Julie said...

This is a great sketch. I love how you were able to take random front yard pictures and make a theme out of them. Thanks!

Mom2TwoBoys said...

Love the layout. I'm excited to see your variations on this throughout the week because it looks so specific with the trees. I'm sure they will all look fabulous and completely different and I'll be left in aww once again:)

Marcia S said...

Love the look of the hills. Do you adhere the farthest back first? Or adhere the closest first with temporary adhesive? Great page.

Missy said...

Love this sketch! I love it when you include more themed items in your layouts, such as trees and birds. It motivates me to pull out my theme items and get to work! Thanks for the inspiration!

Michele Mc said...

Sketch week couldn't have come at a better time. I am having a completely terrible day and this is just the thing I needed to cheer me up (even if only for a short while).

Love this sketch. Great colors and very cool 'hill' concept. Beyond that, I love the fact that the photo sizes/crops look very manageable. I have been spending too much time lately decided which will be full size, while should be 2x3, etc. This grouping looks simple.

Off to a great start! Can't wait to see the variations!

I have to admit that the hills in the sketch scared me at first, but after seeing your LO and reading your tips I think I can do this! Fall photos with my kids jumping in leaves are what I'm picturing right now for a LO. Thanks so much for your inspiration!

Laura said...

I really love this sketch!! It will be great for all the fall activities coming up. I also love the stitching you did on here - I really think it gives the whole layout a polished look. Can't wait to see the rest of your layouts this week! You are so creative!

Kim said...

This sketch seems so different than your normal style but it is just so "you." I love those rolling hills. I have one of those flex rulers, I will definitely have to do this sketch. It would be perfect for my September month in review layout since it has the hills and trees. Very exciting about a guest designer, since Basic Grey is the sponsor this month, fingers crossed maybe it is Kelly Goree from Basic Grey, I love her work. Looking forward to seeing the different variations the rest of the week.

Love the sketch and your lo. as usual.What a great way to jump start and get some mojo going for me to scrap this week.Thanks for the awesome oppurtunity to win BG goodies love them.

Allison Davis said...

Amy, I use the BoBunny ruler quite a bit. It's not really one of my tools that I use all the time but it doesn't come in handy. I also use it for stitching wavy lines.

Marcia, I arrange them how I want them on the page without adhesive first and then make a small pencil mark on the page where each hill will go. Then I adhere the back one first.

Jody, BasicGrey and I are working on something else together too. :) Congrats to the new addition to your family. So glad to hear your niece is doing great, she's tiny! And of course I love her name! :)

Michele, the group of photos is very easy to work with. All of mine are cropped from 4 x 6 so I didn't have to mess with printing any other size. It's nice when I only have to worry about getting 4 x 6 photos!

lenainwodnerland, I have a feeling you might really like one of the others coming up this week. :)

LeAnne, if it's wasn't for that diaper is would have been major plumber's crack!

Paper Doll, that's awesome that you got 8 layouts with just 3 sketches! I'm so glad you are liking the sketch books and they are working for you! :)

Sometimes new tools can be intimidating. My Bo Bunny ruler has not been used for over a year now -- but you've given me a boost of confidence and I'm ready to get my money's worth out of it! :)
