Here is the page that I made for the sketch challenge over at ATDML's cybercrop - there is still time to enter and the sketch is fantastic. I used Websters Pages Sunday Picnic line, which I was sent to have a play with for June's gallery over at ATDML...and figured since I was in the photos I could use pink on the page :) I love the bright swathes of colour in these papers.
I started by stitching a circle (lightly drew around a plate with pencil and then stitched, then rubbed the marks out. I then added a square of striped paper behind the photos and 2 strips of punched paper (the punch is one of my favourites - Martha Stewarts Doily edge lace) and unusually I dug out my paper ribbler (crimper).....yes you didn't think you would see one again, but I love the subtle texture it adds. I had a go at some triangular arrows as triangles seem to be everywhere at the moment, made a few banners, and then hand stitched some hanging buttons. To keep with the theme I journalled following the edge of the circle, and of course added some splatters of cosmic shimmer and glimmer mist in orange and blue.
The photos are from one of our numerous trips to legoland, and I'm not sure what the ride is called but it is like a jet ski on an arm and you steer your ski in to the centre and then just let go and it pulls you to the outside as you go around and around. As you can see from the photos my eldest is loving it, whereas my youngest has he hands firmly clamped over his ears...tho apparently he did enjoy it.
I also used this page over on It's A Creative World with some tips to help you scrap quicker as this was one of my fastest pages yet (though do bear in mind I am normally a slow scrapper). Here is a link so you can find out more
