Well it is another fun reveal day over on the Creative Scrappers blog today and this sketch is like no other!!
When Kristne asked us to play along with sketch #272 which had no photo I was at first, admittedly at little scared..yikes.. I have only ever created one other layout like this , about 7 years ago documenting my pregnancy ..
But then as the scrappy-gods would have it , about 2 days after receiving this sketch my daughter out of the blue started telling me about her plans for when she grows up..
She was so matter of fact about it , that I knew I wanted it recorded so that I would remember this forever.. So sketch #272 was perfect !!\
And here is my take...
I have been making an effort to finish off layout's using up some older products, so I managed to sneak on some of this rather old paper flowers and I love the little punch of colour it adds to the layout.
I also can;t seem to stay away from adding seam binding tape to my flower clusters :) I love the little " pretty" look it creates..
After creating the watercolour flowers, I used a sharpie fine tip pen to roughly outline the flowers. I tried just using a normal fine tip pen that I used with my journalling, but because of the resist the waxy watercolour created the pen was not working.
The sharpie worked really well although it takes a lot longer to dry and can be easily smudged. I learnt the hard way..
