Sketches in Thyme! Here we've got a beautiful 2-page spread, but I've decided to adapt it into a one-pager, and ended up with this:
Now I'm pretty embarrassed about the quality of this photo! Would you believe we have three dead cameras in the house? My favourite one won't even turn on, and I know it's not the battery, so I'm kind of freaking out! Argh, and I'm going to the school assembly tomorrow morning, too! I wasn't going to take the time off work, but then Ailis' teacher called to say she's getting an award. What am I gonna do?
So these photos are taken in crummy light with a phone, and even though I've tried to fix them on Picasa, they really don't do the layout justice. I will explain the title work here:
because that's the coolest part (and nobody can even tell, waaaah!) I cut the title and stars out of the background paper using my Silhouette Cameo, then put some Sook Wang tape behind the cut outs. Then I poured flock in different colours onto the tape and kind of rubbed it in. Believe me when I say it looks MUCH better in person!
As for supplies, I've used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, paper from Simple Stories, and flock from Recollections. And that's about it! I sure hope that my camera miraculously heals overnight - fingers crossed for me, 'kay?
