Hello, my friends!
I had a long list of things I wanted/needed to do today. Instead of doing ANY of it I grabbed a fun sketch and made a layout!
Many of you know that I love sunflowers. They decorate my kitchen and fill my back yard. So I tend to have lots of photos of sunflowers. I used one of them on this page. I created a PNG file using a Helen Keller quote. I will try to remember to add it to the end of this post. Please feel free to use it. It says:
"Keep your face to the sunshine
and you cannot see the shadows.
It's what the sunflowers do."
It's a very dark and dreary day here, so it was very hard to get a good photo. I layered my papers and stitched around them a couple of times, adding some lace in between the layers. It's still hard for me to sew crooked but I'm working on it! lol I always try to stay very true to the sketch I'm using. I searched my Cricut Cartridges and found some cuts that were pretty close to the ones shown. One thing I did change was to use tags instead of the puzzle pieces in the sketch. The tags and the chipboard letters are a gorgeous sparkly green. I sprayed them with Adirondack color wash and followed that with Perfect Pearls Mist. The kraft piece behind the photo was embossed with the wood grain folder. Everything was distressed and inked. Oh, the background paper was also stamped using a variety of stamps. I think that's about it. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I guess the day is not quite over yet...I'm going to get to work on that list! :o)
