Here is the sketch for Project 12 for August:and here is what I came up with:
I kept it fairly simple, and stuck very closely to the original sketch. The hard part was narrowing down all my August pics to only three, but I think I put the best ones on here. I just love this paper pack from Close to My Heart, but I didn't have any royal blue, so all of the blue paper you see was actually cream - I just brayered over it with blue ink. The scallop frame around Brenna's face is homemade, too. I just made a large circle frame with my Creative Memories circle cutters, and then cut a bunch of smaller circles in half to make the scallops. I added some green twine at the top, and a subtitle made with my trusty label maker, and that's about it - a fun summer page! I'm also going to link this up to Sketches in Thyme for their Open Challenge.
Supplies (all CTMH): Splendor Level 2 paper pack, Moonstruck ink, Chocolate (small) alphabet stamp set, Clover Meadow brads
Other: Twinery twine, Bazzill Just The Edge border, Dymo label maker and tape, unknown twine
P.S. Hunter's settling in pretty good, probably about 90% house trained. Nolan had a bit of a breakdown yesterday where he was feeling very overwhelmed and restricted, and also that he wasn't being a very good dog owner, so we had a heart-to-heart (I told him that's exactly how I felt when I had him 9 years ago!) and I think he's feeling better about the whole situation today. Here's another pic for you to enjoy!
