Mall Madness Layout

The grungy look is not my normal style, but it seemed to fit this photo about a youth group event. I started with a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy that had some fun diagonal strips, and, contrary to my usual instinct,  I challenged myself to not straighten them! It gave the finished layout a fun, funky vibe that I'm really enjoying. Hope you love it, too.

I also made a card with a couple of the left-over scraps, and this one has some fun diagonals, too!
