Kissably Cute with a Sketch plus BasicGrey & an Orientation How-to

Another Scrapbook News and Review Magazine share for today.  This time up is a sketch by Emma Stafrace.  My assignment was to change the orientation.  I used a Y axis rotation of 180 degrees to come up with this take on it.


Supplies: Patterned Papers, Die Cut Stickers, Chipboard, Brads, Cardstock Stickers: BasicGrey, Glitter Letter Stickers: Making Memories, Ink: Tsukineko, Baker's Twine: Jillibean Soup, Pen: Creative Memories, Other: jewels

Such a fun layout and I chose to use up some stash papers and products from the Urban Prairie Collection from BasicGrey that suited my photos well.

This was the original sketch:




Here is the sketch take that I worked from:




Sometimes it is really helpful to see the different orientation variations before choosing which one works best for you.  This was how I went about getting the take that I chose:

1. Right click on the sketch image and then paste it into a word document.  Resize to a smaller version without skewing it by holding down either control or shift and then left clicking the mouse and dragging it to desired size.

2. Right click on the resized image, click on format picture and then select 3D Rotation.  From there you can play with the X, Y or Z axises to determine which take on the sketch you would prefer. Be sure to print off or sketch out the new orientation of the sketch.

TTFN,
