Grid Design and Studio Calico Weekly Challenge

Its no secret that I love grid design.  Its a great way to mix papers and embellishments while keeping a clean look.  But I always end up with overlapping blocks on my grid.  So this week's Sunday sketch at Studio Calico really inspired me to try a grid design without overlapping the blocks.

Here's my take using elements from the Planetarium, Orion and Lyra kits.  I did a pretty good job of keeping each block separate (except for that wood veneer polaroid frame in the middle of the page.

This was a great way to use up scraps and I had lots of fun mixing embellishments in the different blocks on the grid.

And I like that I could have replaced other blocks with photos if I had had some related pictures in my pile to scrap.  

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday.
