On the Grid

I think I may start to be liking grids these days.  I guess I likely scrap with a grid more often then I realize.  But this one definately has that feel in a very obvious sort of way.

It's based on this sketch



By Celeste Smith

But it's also based on this Home Dec Photo



And all of these are from the challenges going on over at JBS.  Be sure and check it out.

Ok, on to the layout!  I used my Silhouette to cut out the dark grey frames.  I had a little trouble as it didn't cut through the paper all the way for some reason.  I decided that I liked the rough edges though and just used it anyway.

I really enjoyed using the frames, but also not allowing them to completely box me in.  I'm not a huge fan of chipboard but I really love these little house shapes and was happy to find a way to incorporate them.

I'm also not terribly happy with the printing.  My printer is on the fritz and I had these done at Walgreens and they just came out dark and yuck.  Hoping to get my printer situation solved soon.

Oh, and there is one bit of washi.  Can you find it?







Have a supercalafragalisticexbealidocious fantastic day!

  18. This is super cool, I like some gridded layouts really well, others not so much, it's kind of a hit-or-miss thing for me. (when I saw your 'on the grid' title I was kinda hoping for something Tron-y LOL)
