Again, thank you Aymee, we are happy to have you at SOUS!
Well this weeks sketch was turned into a 2 page affair when I realized I wanted to finish up our family trip to the pumpkin patch. I got a couple ideas from looking at my scrapbook magazines...one was to use paint on the LO so I dry brushed black acrylic paint on the edges of the paper and the photos, that served as a mat would have. The second idea was randomly placed gems (which don't show up particularly well in this photo)
This is the page based off of the challenge sketch. I flipped things a bit though.
My second page was to hold the rest of the kids photo's from our outing. I tried my hand at a folded ribbon "look". I used black vellum, folded and then hand stitched (boy was that fun- not!) And then laid orange cord (kind of similar to thin shoe string).
Circles were cut from George and then distressed. Paper is from My Minds Eye, Boo To You (my LSS splurge). The centers are from this weird paper I found at a flea market...its kinda like flock but more spongy...odd but cool! The word stickers are from Memories Direct (I now know why we use rub-ons so that there isn't the sheen on a sticker, that bugged me but after I tried to pull of a couple it was taking up the paper..so there they lie).
This design is from Storybook, border design then welded a couple more times. Paper is DCWV white core cardstock so I was able to sand it enough to just show subtly against the same colored background. Here you can also see the black paint along the photo edges.
And that's about it for this week's challenge...hope you all get a chance to pop on over and see what my wonderful girlfriends have done at SOUS!
