You know I love starting my layouts with a good sketch and this one does not disappoint! This sketch is from Scrapbooking With AnnMarie and I love it!
I used two photos from our trip to Tubac AZ and our meal at a favorite restaurant there. I had to take a photo of the glass bulbs hanging from the ceiling.
See the process video to see how it was made:
Close up of the cluster:
It's so fun making clusters when you have random items that just seem to 'go' with each other. You can see in the video that I grabbed items from different areas (even used a unused drink ticket from my recent 40th high school reunion that I had on my desktop) - they all worked together to make this cluster.
Cluster making tips: I like to make sure that each item touches another one even if it's only a little bit. I think this gives a group effect so it doesn't look like random scattering of items.
Each patterned paper rectangle was cut at 3.5x3".
