Gone Fishing

My father in law took my son fishing. He's the only person in the family that enjoys it as much as Nick does. I promise he does inspite of that look on his face. LOL. This is a digital layout for our landscape 11 x 8 1/2 book. I used a blue back ground then used a wire/mesh panel to add contrast. I thought it looked like a fishing net, so it fit. I did follow a sketch, but I changed some things up a bit. I didn't journal and I moved the title to the left. I also put the focal photo on the bottom rather than in the middle. I still thought it was a great sketch so I thought I'd share it.

As usual my sketches are found on PageMaps. They have the very best collection in my opinion. Go visit them. I save sketches I find all over the web to my hard drive for later use. I have a folder labeled sketches, then inside there are folders labeled "1", "2", "3", "4", "5+". Each numbered folder corresponds with the amount of photos each sketch is for. For example the #4 folder has all sketches for layouts with 4 photos. That way when I have a handful of photos to scrap I can go directly to the folder that shows layouts for that amount of photos and find a sketch. I am up to over a hundred per folder. It has completely changed my scrapping for the better.
