My fingers have been itching to create some layouts!
My mind is abuzz with ideas for my trip photos,
but I don't have any of them printed out yet.
Then this morning I was totally inspired by a sketch.
I grabbed a photo I had on hand and got busy!
This sketch was posted on Scrap Much Blog.
I just recently found their site, and I'm happy to play along.
It looks like Laura makes lots of fabulous sketches!
When I find a sketch inspiring, I tend to stay very true to the sketch.
I chose a lovely photo of some roses I received,
and then I reached into my hoard vault for the papers.
I love this collection!
It's French Country by DCWV.
Some of the papers are beautifully glittered!
Here's what I did:
It doesn't show very well in the photos
but the background paper has a soft green design on it.
I felt these pretty rosettes worked well with the soft colours.
I stitched through my title, as shown in the sketch!
I'm always happy to do a little stitching!
For my journaling, I used the sentiment quote from Shakespeare that I made up.
You can find it on my Free Stuff Page.
To make them stand out a bit more, I inked the edges of the title and the sentment.
I had so much fun making this layout!
I hope you enjoy looking at it!
