Stuck?! March 1st Sketch

Sunday, March 1, 2015

Happy March, y'all!  It's so hard to believe we're here already, but that doesn't stop it from coming.  Does it?  Well, being as it's the first day of a new month, I've got my take on Stuck?! Sketches' bi-monthly sketch to share with you all.  So, let's just get to it!
I started this page by securing a torn strip of vellum to the pink, heart, patterned, paper, base page, across its top and bottom edges, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  I then stamped a few stitched circles, in Jet Black ink, throughout the page, before anchoring a trio of torn, color-coordinating, patterned papers, just below horizontal center, with more silver-threaded stitching.  A couple of large, Cameo-cut, Whisper White, cardstock blooms back my photos which were matted with Whisper White cardstock.
"I Love You" and "XOXOXOXO", cardstock stickers...
as well as a few stamped, in Jet Black ink, on patterned paper, blooms, whose centers were embellished with enamel dots and edges flanked with soft green, glitter, heart stickers, turned leaves, ground the design.  A stamped, in Jet Black ink, dotted, heart circle, as well as a couple of white embossed, on vellum, and hand-cut butterflies...
turn our attention to a secondary cluster of blooms, prepped in the same way as above, as well as the "this was a happy day", cardstock sticker.
A trio of hand-cut, from patterned paper, hearts were turned into balloons with stamped, in Jet Black ink, strings; and another embossed, vellum butterfly tops the design.
A couple additional, torn, patterned, paper strips, as well as a cluster of embellishments, mimicked from the bulk of the page, ground my "ALL TIME favorite BEAUTY" title, which was created from a silver, glitter, phrase sticker and a Cameo-cut, Real Red, cardstock "BEAUTY".
A couple of silver, glitter arrows; number of clear gemstones; and stamped, in Jet Black ink, "adore", "love you", and "IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY, make a wish!" phrases complete the look.
Here is your March 1st Sketch to get you started.
