Season of Change
Hey! Aren't you proud! I actually put the sketch up with my post! =o)
I really liked this one and had different ideas for it until I came across this printed paper from My Mind's Eye and it kind of had something similar (with the rows of squares)...so I went with it! I guess I am kinda into the kraft, monotone look lately! Since I just did something similar this past weekend for the Papertrey Ink blog hop! (though I this one did come before the last)
I'd also like to say how much fun I had with the blog hop. I certainly have never done any hop like that, nothing so huge! I had more then 400 hits on my blog from it! wow! I just really appreciate the adventure and also a few new friends I made! Hi PTI ladies! LOL!
Oh and please...don't forget to check out the rest of the ladies from the Stuck on U Sketches DT! Great projects from everyone...no like really....our team is totally killer! =o)
So here's the sketch...
How sweet is this? All my newborn babies during their first Winter in the fallen leaves in our front yard. This LO was 6 years in the making! =o)
The piece that the 3 photos are on is all popped. I actually cut out another piece from the paper collection, it happened to have lines on it and I knew that would be perfect for my journaling near the bottom. I like this paper line, Life Stories. It offers such an interesting perspective and there is a limitless amount of ideas on how to use this line! I about some at a LSS (paid too much) and then found the whole line in a stack at M's!
My title out of cork letters and my journaling!
I took the second page of the same print and cut out some of these pieces so that I could stamp and layer them. I added the dates of all the years here as well. I also added faux stitching with a dark brown pen and some pieces here and there of another kraft cardstock with a punched border. And my felt leaves that I have been usually sparingly on projects.
Close up of the title but also to show how much layering there is in this LO. Text print is Basic Grey Basic line. That was white but I inked it to match the creme cardstock I used in some of the other layering.
Happy October everyone! And seriously...October already! dang!
