scrap africa sketch 4.

It's time for a new sketch over at scrap Africa! Wow - i can hardly believe how time has flown and ho the site has grown with followers from all over the world. so happy that this little place can show case local talent to the rest of the world. i love working with this sketch (and the new ones are even better) so hang around why don't ya. here's what i did with the sketch. i create a funky border using my olba heart punch. it took quite a few hearts punched from patterned paper to create this border.
i first drew a circle using a large plate in pencil. i then adhered the first lot of hearts by easily picking them up with an ordinary wax crayon - it works really well.
i then flipped the second lot of hearts over and fitted them into the space formed by the first lot of hearts. it really is a stunning effect and so easy to recreate.
and some close ups of my journaling. i printed my journaling in a circle shape and punched it out using a circle punch, inked the edges and then added it to the center of a clock sticker. a single cross stitch adds some detail.
and a close-up showing the finishing touches on the heart border using purple diamante.
and some technique strips used throughout. i love using scraps of things i love. pieces of technique sheets are perfect for punching shapes and adding strips randomly on layouts - fabulous for adding texture and colour.
hop on over to the scrap Africa blog to see more fabulous designs as well as see what guest designer and scrapping icon Iris has done using the same sketch!
