Not quite what I planned in my head ...

... I've been waiting for the March Scrap365 sketch challenge to go live since I saw it in the mag last month. It looked like just my sort of sketch.


But when I started to actually make a page it just didn't come together well. All sorts of paper combinations were discarded, and after pulling apart the page, I finally finished by sticking with papers from the same range (Crate Paper Flea Market, from Nov/Dec Quirky Kits). It ended up better than I thought it would at one point, interesting how the design process works sometimes!


I've shifted the sketch around a bit, but think you can still see the main elements of it.

Love the page....I often find myself getting frustrated because a page is just not coming together as I imagined!!

That sketch is on my 'to scrap' list too but I'm just not feeling the love with the papers I have to hand. Just waiting for tomorrow's reveal of the counterfeit kit to see whether it will help.

so glad your page worked out so well in the end though sounds like a frustrating process!!

Sometimes I want to use a particular sketch and the photos/PPs just won't let me! I tried to use that sketch this w/e and failed. Well done for persevering - love those buttons!
