When I first saw this sketch, I honestly was at a loss as to what to do with it - for those of you who follow my work, you'll know that it isn't often I do a multi-photo, symmetrical layout. But this is one of the reasons it is fun to play along with sketches/challenges - they make you step outside your "comfort zone". And I am so happy with how this layout turned out. Lots of inking and distressing (including water distressing) on this layout - I wanted the paper edges to look like crinkled leaves.
Instead of just the three squares for the photos, I created tags using some of the cardstock that came with the kit and added ribbon (also in the kit) and twine bows (twine from my stash) to the tops of the tags. I also added a doily, which I cut in half and misted/inked (doily and mist from my stash, ink from the kit).
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today - I appreciate your visits and comments so much!
