Down The Dhoon

Jimjams - layout detail - vellum circles Welcome to the start of September's edition of the Members' Blog Hop from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.

This month I had a go combining the sketches from Challenge #3: I kept the side "white" space and full central section from the first sketch and used two photos (assuming that those two rectangles are meant to be photos.  From the second sketch I kept the background squares but offset them to allow for my journalling tag.

The vellum circles and gold brads from my September Counterfeit Kit helped break up the lines a little and echoed the cluster from the first sketch as well.

The photos are from our trip to the Isle of Man earlier this summer: we walked off a delicious Sunday brunch by descending one of the deepest glens, passing a stunning waterfall and resting on a beautiful beach before climbing the 190 steps back up.  Not that I counted, as I was too short of breath!

Next stop on the Members' Hop is the lovely Tina and you can find the full list of participants Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today.

Gorgeous layout, Jemma - love the rich, green background and the squares of patterned papers. You're right, the vellum circles do help soften the lines.

You did a beautiful job combining those two sketches into a stunning layout! Those vellum circles looks great and the waterfall looks like it was an amazing sight.

Your interpretation is different to mine and what a beautiful layout! Amazing scenery.

Love what you did with combining the sketches :) This was a fun challenge and fun to see how we interpreted the sketches. Love the colors you chose and the vellum circles really added depth to the layout. Love the clean green background to ground everything :) Beautiful waterfall :)

A super way to combine the two sketches and how clever to off-set those background blocks. I really like what you've done and the colours really reflect the beautiful photos. I particularly love the vellum circles. You know how much I love vellum!
