scrap africa sketch challenge.5:09:00 PM
it's time for another sketch challenge over at Scrap Africa.i loved working with this sketch - i turned the sketch 90 degrees so i could use portrait photos. for my background i used a stencil and inked through it using distress ink and an applicator tool. i moved the stencil and kept inking to create darker and lighter areas. love how it turned out. for my patterned paper i used scraps of Kaisercraft paper, some Prima word stickers, buttons, diamante and sewing.
as a focal accent i used one of my die-cut felt hearts cut on my Cuttlebug - yes it cuts felt perfectly - and scrunched up some gold thread underneath it. the heart hold the thread in place with a small amount of Tombow Mono Multi adhesive, and a small cross stitch sew afterwards holds it securely in place....just to make sure. simple and elegant, perfect for a layout of a little guy reflecting on life.
head on over to Scrap Africa to see what the other design team girls did with their designs. and why not play along to win some awesome goodies.
