Single photo sketch layouts (1)

I have a lot of 'one shot' photos so I really like sketches that feature single photographs when I want to do a bit of quick scrapping.

This one is for Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia:

I made a 6x6 layout for my 'house and garden' album.  I use album this to record our local flora and fauna.  For the background I embossed a piece of transparency, which actually looks really nice but doesn't photograph very well.  Here's a close up of the layers:

Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety - Bloomers patterned paper
Scenic Route patterned paper (leaf motifs)
Making Memories Noteworthy glitter die cut
Kaisercraft Tiny Alpha - Latte stickers
Cuttlebug Textile Texture embossing folder

This one is based on the February sketch at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge:

How I used the sketch:  I went with a larger photograph, and I filled the negative space with my journalling.

Sassafras Lass Mix n Mend - Sweet Treats sticker
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Golden Terracotta
Kaisercraft Tiny Alpha - Latte stickers
Vintage dressmaking pattern
American Crafts Pearl Brad - Elegant
