I absolutely LOVE this sketch by Helen Croft of Scrap A Little! Sketches !! Its simple linear design is totally my style. I knew it would be perfect to showcase some funny photos of my nephew, Thomas, who was certainly the center of attention during Jen and Rob’s recent visit.
I used some scraps of Basic Grey's Oliver paper on simple white cardstock and kept the embellishing to a minimum. I’ve recently been following the blog of Kinsey Wilson, a very talented woman. I love the way she uses hand stitching to add an original and personal touch to her pages. I think it’s the former quilter/cross-stitcher in me that’s so attracted to handstitching. Looking at her work has inspired me to add a bit of hand stitching to my own layouts.
I’m really happy with the end result of this layout – from the handstitched swirls to the buttons to its very simplicity, it’s one of my favourites I’ve done so far.
Until next time...
