This layout is based on the June Guest Design Team Challenge over at Sketchy Thursdays. I love Heidi's sketches and am happy to be seeing more and more of them!
I made the flowers (which are available in my shop here - you can request the fabric I used for this layout). I used October Afternoon papers for my background and framed the yellow damask with masking tape. I took a piece of cardboard, painted the edge, and stamped the corner lines.
I used a scrap piece of one of my favorite K and Co. papers for the pleated strip, and some scrap pieces of two Basic Grey papers for my leaves and the bracket strip at the bottom.
I recently discovered that I have way too many rub-ons for not being a rub-on user, so I've challenged myself to use them up. The little finger pointing at my journaling is an American Crafts Mini Mark. I loved the look of lace in the sketch, but was afraid to use lace on a layout about my boy. Solution? Use it anyway, but use a very subtle one. I like the effect :).
I hope your day is sunny and bright. Mine is, and I'm really grateful for that. Thanks for stopping by! Tessa
