SIT #85

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Note:  If you've come here looking for my PDCC142 post, please scroll down.

So good to have you all visiting for another fabulous, two-page sketch at Sketches in Thyme!  You already know how much I absolutely love this time of the month ;)!  So, I'll just get right to it.
I started this layout by adhering a vintage, sewing pattern, book page, which I cut in half, to both sides of my pink grid and distressed, gray, patterned, paper, base pages.  I then stamped the pattern pieces, in Jet Black ink, on strips of vellum and anchored them, just below and overlapping the bottom edge of the book pages, across their top edges, with gray-threaded, straight, machine stitches.
Wide strips of black, star, patterned paper, anchored, across their top and bottom edges, with pink-threaded, straight stitches, create the foundation for my pictures, which were framed with Whisper White cardstock and adhered in their horizontal row.  That turns our attention to the left side of the layout...
where you'll find the "Made with Love For You" sentiment, which was made from gray alphabeans and a cardstock sticker and backed with a neutral, graphic, patterned paper, which was trimmed, across its bottom edge, with a punched strip of gray, gingham, patterned paper and anchored with gray-threaded, straight and zig-zag, machine stitches.  The alphabeans themselves were, too, anchored with more of those gray-threaded, straight, machine stitches.
Finally, I stamped the stitched flowers, in Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink inks, on Oatmeal cardstock; hand cut them out; ink distressed their edges; adhered them, with foam tape, in their respective locations; dressed the lighter one up with a white, resin, sticker flower; and flanked them with a couple of white leaves and a duo of hemp twine bows.
You'll find that same flower cluster on the right side of the layout...
with the exception of it being short the smallest flower.  It also anchors the right end of a graphic, color-coordinating, cardstock, sticker strip, which runs over onto the left side of the page.
A cardstock, sticker label, which reads, I get so much joy from making beautiful things for you to wear.  You are my sunshine, and was raised off the page with foam tape, completes the look.
Now, it's your turn, y'all!  Here's your Challenge #85 Sketch to help get you started.
