Gambling With A Sketch

Layout detail showing dollar token - Jimjams
The first challenge of the month with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is to use a multi-photo sketch from Pretty Little Studio.  I've used  it with my April Counterfeit Kit to make a start on my photos from Las Vegas, documenting my experiences in the casinos.
Pretty Little Studio Sketch #28
The sketch called for 3 portrait photos and a journalling block on 4 pennants, but I had a series of 3 landscape pictures to scrap.  They would have needed to be printed very small to fit within the width of the pennants, so I rotated the sketch through 90° to accommodate larger prints.  I also switched the journalling and the title as I had a lot to say!!
Extra pennants cut from vintage book pages, edged with an EK Success border punch, added some dimension and I topped off the page with a souvenir dollar token donated by my slightly luckier friend Jacqui!

Hmmm - not that close to the original sketch now - which is just how I like it!!

Sketches are all about the starting points, and I like where you ended up with this one. Love all that layering.

I love this interpretation - you have given yourself plenty of room for the story and you have some great banner action going on there too. Perfect!

Great rotation and adaptation. I always figure a sketch is to start and where I end up is fine ;)
