Just One Sketch - Motorbike love

I don't often scrap photos of my late brother.....and I really should.....I love these black + white photos of him with his bike......and he truly loved the bike.....the last and largest one that he owned.
So I've used my sketch designed for the 'Just one Sketch' class to scrap them.....using the sketch a bit more loosely this time......and going monochromatic.
Because most of the papers were scraps......I've layered a few behind the photos......together with some of Tim's wonderful tissue tape......and I like the effect of the eyelets at the bottom.
I love this page.......and I'm really pleased that despite using the same sketch......this page looks so different from my first one.
I'm joining in the Sir Stampalot monochromatic challenge.

What a lovely page Jackie - the monochrome is perfect for the subject. I was surprised at how different my second one was too.

Great layout and a pab tribute to your late brother - love the monochrome, it's jsut so right with the photos. Love the textures too with the mesh and the sequin waste too

I think this is one of my favorite pages of yours, ever. The monochromatic papers, the mesh, the eyelets--it all goes together so seamlessly, and yet your photos of your brother are front and center. It love that changing the papers, photos, and embellishments transforms the sketch so totally.

What a lovely page in memory of your brother. The black and white theme goes so well with the photos and it really is quite different from your normal style. Brilliant!

Those are fantastic photos of your brother and show how happy he is on his bike decked out in his leather! I agree with the others - this monochromatic color scheme works well :)

I can only echo many of the comments left by previous wise commentators! The monochromatic paper choices really set this one off Jacky and the design really is perfect for this layout!

It's a stunning page Jacky! Show-stopping, in fact. When we feel strongly about something it really can show on a page, can't it?

OMGosh I LOVE this Jacky! What a lovely memento of your dear brother - you should frame this, its way too nice to 'hide' in a scrapbook!

alexa said...

This is so striking - strong and bold and clear. i love those eyelets holding down the mesh too.

A really clever piece Jackie, you have combined all the elements with the photos as though they were made for one another.

Thank you so much for joining in our Monochromatic theme at Stampalot Challenge this month, good luck and look forward to seeing you again.
