Deer and Fawn June challenge
I decided to have a go at the June challenge at Deer and Fawn, it's a sketch, and I love a sketch when I am feeling in a rut, and this sketch is awesome:
I had a lot of fun with this one. I actually did it twice, but one of them was accepted by Scrapbooking Memories magazine, so can't share that one.
I loved the simplicity of this sketch, it allows a lot of scope, and perfect for boy layouts.
In this version, I chose a photo of my nephew Lachlan, with a repeat in the smaller size. I used a stencil and paint to create the red spots in the background, then used some paint to spatter colour around the page. Loved doing this in the primary colours - having the black and white photos meant I could use any colour range.
I used a plate to trace around to get the large circle. I then used some Stampin up punches to punch my circles. I sewed around the border with my machine - using some straight stitch and zigzag together - pretty cool effect I think, and I then doodled this onto my punched circles.
I kept the circular theme going with my embellishments - some old brads, that I removed the posts from on the back - and mounted on foam, buttons, D-lish Scraps flair, and a sticker which I glued to a bottle cap - remember those? I also have some Charms Creations embellishments - one of which is a DIY circle - which I added resist paint to and then coloured with glimmermist - it didn't work as well as I wanted, but it's kind of cute. Anyway, I am pleased with the end result.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
All that awesome
