Today I am going to share with you the steps for putting my layout for SBC sketch 402 together. When I saw that big circle I knew I wanted to make that a volleyball and create a page of my daughter playing volleyball. I found my background paper which is a net. I then went on the internet and found a drawing of a volleyball, made it the size I wanted, and then printed it out. I also wanted some small white volleyballs. I used my cricut to emboss some white paper and then cut out some smaller circles. Below you can see my background paper, volleyball, and my 2 small embossed circles.I had about 7 volleyball photos. I chose 4 that I liked the best for this layout. I cut these photos into 3X3 squares. Now I had the basics that I needed for my page.
I then moved the volleyball to where I wanted it and moved my photos around to where I wanted them. I went back and tried several places for the 2 small white circles. I decided to put them near the bottom right of the volleyball.
I then find a journalling card that I liked and wrote my journalling. I used some sparkly white letters to spell out volleyball for my title. I found some string that was similar to the string lines of the volleyball net and added this to the left side of my page. Since our mascot is the shamrock I drew freehand a shamrock and cut it out. I added white paint to the edges and then put pop dots under it to secure it to my paper so that it had some depth to it. Here is a close ups of the letters, the shamrock and the string.
Lastly I wanted some sparkle so I added some plastic discs.
Here is my finished page.
I hope these steps have given you some ideas as to what you can do on your next LO.
