Layout #49 - Sketchy Thursdays




Here is one of the layouts I started at Creative Accents Saturday night for Tara's b-day crop. I knew I wanted to use this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:
as soon as I saw it because I had printed out a bunch of small prints the last time I was in the big smoke (Williams Lake, that is, and I know all the Lakers are laughing when I say Williams Lake is the "big smoke"!) I don't know how happy I am with how this turned out. I remember sitting there at 9 p.m. saying, "I've been here working on this for how long? And I've got 3 photos and some strips of paper on my page!" Anyway, once I got it home, I did a bit more work on it, adding the journaling and title and a bit of machine stitching (helps everything stay together!), but I can't help feeling like it needs a bit more pizzazz. On the up side, at least the photos and journaling are really dominant, right?

Supplies: Close to My Heart and Bazzill (?) embossed cardstock, Little Yellow Bicycle patterned paper and pins, Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist and Distress Ink, Maya Road doily, Making Memories alpha stickers, Twinery twine, Creative Memories pen Posted by Picasa
