Variation #1 - One great thing about this sketch is that it can easily be split into a one-page layout, especially the left page. I wanted to use the left side because it stands alone with minimal to no adjustments.
Variation #2 - One of my favorite things about adjusting this sketch into a one-page layout is the endless possibilities for adding a background to the page. I added a bunch of strips in different heights and widths as my background. Here are some more ideas:
• Add a large square background, like 10" or 11" square.
• Add a decorative background like a die cut paper.
• Use a template or mask with inks or paints to create a background.
• Add a large shape like a heart, star, circle, etc.
• Add a bunch of smaller squares like 1", 2", or 3"
• Combine this photo arrangement with the paper design of another one-page sketch.
This sketch is definitely one that you can use over and over and get completely different looks with just one small adjustment.
Variation #3 - For the pictures, I followed the sketch exactly except for leaving one photo off to use as my journaling space. That's always an easy solution for a sketch that might not have as much journaling space as you would like. Just exchange a photo or element on the sketch for journaling space.
Variation #4 - Instead of using the stars on my layout I used hearts, cameras, and arrows to fit my theme.
