Sketch #7

I have a brand new sketch for you!

And I created this fun layout based on my sketch.

I used paper from the October Afternoon Fly A Kite line (love it!). I didn't have any trees that I could use on my page so I hand drew a pattern for the trees and then traced them onto my paper and cut them out. With a bit of stitching and a couple of buttons, I love how they turned out.

The clouds are chipboard covered with paper. The title element was made using a couple of OA's journal cards and mini alpha stickers, and chipboard alphas from MLS.

The grass was made using my very favorite Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors and a strip of the dot paper. After I cut the fringe, I randomly folded the paper and machine stitched it in place.

I hope my sketch and layout inspire you to create a layout this week!

Happy creating~
