Son, Spread Your Wings – dt layout for Sketchabilities

Sketch #106 at Sketchabilities is now live! For my example for the challenge, I decided to go with a neutral background and pops of blue, rusty orange and metallics to compliment my photo of my oldest son, Taten.

As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to replace the circular elements and flourishes with Creative Embellishments gears and that fabulous steampunk clock and gear cluster I’ve been saving for the perfect page. Here’s what I came up with:
