Do you love to buy the 6×6 paper pads that many companies are issuing when they come out with a new line? Me too! They’re much less expensive than a full 12×12 kit, and I usually like the patterns in the reduced scale.
So I am always on the hunt for ways to use pieces of patterned paper that are 6×6 or smaller on my 12×12 layouts. When I find good ways to do this I will share them here as “Sketches for Scraps” in case you, like me, have several 6×6 paper pads or a bin full of scraps waiting to make it into your designs.
This sketch from the Sketch Support site is perfect for using up scraps. Although I didn’t follow it exactly, it still worked perfectly for these photos we took during the bird show at the Renaissance Faire this April. Where the strips of paper are in the sketch I created a title to cut with my Silhouette. The title comes from a cartoon by Gary Larson’s The Far Side (which I included on my page). Have fun using this sketch on your next four-photo layout.
