I have to say that this sketch is by far my favorite of hers..at least for now that is!
This photo is one of my all time favorites of my son. I was at my parents house in the backyard with my entire family playing ball and goofing around...got this photo while my son was laying in the grass (cute photo but he paid for it later with the rash he got from rolling around!)
Maybe I should be on a DT for DCWV since I think I only use their paper! LOL! (ok maybe not "only" but close!) Printed paper is from Doodling Around, prints for all year. LOVE this stack! I pretty much fell in love with the whole stack just over these little glittered monsters!
Well of course now I have no idea what fonts I used (maybe I should get into the habit of jotting down notes as I do some of these projects.) I cut the title out of Grundgepaper, inked it with Distress Inks. Cut layers for the eyes out of glitter paper and added a googley eye.
After I cut this out I realized that the font didn't show up enough so I put it over the printed paper. That did not turn up exactly how I wanted it but thats ok. I do love the heart from Indie Art (thanks Donna!) that was covered in Stickles.
The brown border is actually a piece of fabric I cut out of a fabric sample book, along with a piece of green fiber from a lot I bought off of Ebay (need to find another one of those! they were great!)
I knew I needed something in this corner because I wanted to follow the sketch but I just didn't know what to put there...until I figured I could paper piece my own matching little monster! And that's what I did!
I hand drew the monster with the same "sketchy" outline as the printed paper monsters. Punched the circle eyes and used white and yellow behind them and paper pieced the rest of him. I also added some Stickles here and there.
And the last picture shows my journaling. I used a border punch and added some random brads to every other spot.
I guess that about covers it! I am really excited to get started on another LO and to use these bold, fun and funky prints! Makes me happy just to put the project together!
