Elizabeth is my baby sister. We are eleven years apart, and yet we are alike in a lot of ways. She's an amazing person, so I just had to use this amazing sketch from Diana and Sketchy Thursdays to make a page about her.
Here's the new sketch:
Do you see the machine stitched border? I have been dying to machine stitch on a layout for years, and I finally gave it a try with a borrowed sewing machine (thanks, Melinda!). I think I'm putting a sewing machine on my wishlist now! I loved the result and am excited to get to know the sewing machine better :).
I also stitched across the blue pleated paper border, and attached it to a chipboard bracket painted with Tim Holtz (*sigh*) crackle paint. I misted the kraft cardstock with jazz blue, olive vine, and dazzling diamonds Glimmer Mists, so the layout shimmers. I just love the texture this page has (and Elizabeth liked it a lot, too!).
We had a record number of participants this past week - let's break it! Join us with this wonderful new sketch. I'd love to see what you come up with! For all the details and last week's faves/winner, go here.
Have a wonderful Thursday! Tessa
