Do you ever scrap lift?
I don't think I do it often enough! I've done it a few times and there is so much to learn from it: design, use of colors, details, tecnique etc. You really don't have to scrap lift the entire layout you know, picking a few elements can be enough to pick up a few new things.
Over at MyScrapbookNook we have a monthly happening where we feature one of our forum members and challenge the members to find inspiration from the layout and create their own layout from this.
This time we made a twist:
DT member Kim Moreno picked one of Sherri Funks lovely layouts:
made this sketch from it, and gave it to the the DT:
The DT made some examples from the sketch, we didn't know which layout Kim had picked, and here is mine, made with the fabolous October kit.
The burlap banner is simply made of the same burlap stripe you see on the left side of the layout.
Do you want to give this sketch a try? Don't forget to link back to this thread, and/or the gallery so we can leave you some love. You will also find more DT examples, and what the forum members create, in the same thread.
I'm curious - do you scrap lift?
