When I saw that Sketchy Thursdays was looking for a GDT memeber for November I thought I would have a go- they have a fab sketch to work with go check it out here.
Heres the sketch
And heres what I did
You had to write what you were thankful for – it looks like I’m thankful for me here, thats not what I put… I journaled about my family and how I was thankful for them making me, me!!!!
The pink polka dot background paper is from Grace Taylor- I love love love polka dots they are fabby fab they add interest but are rarely too ‘in your face’. And then after the simpleness of the dots I went a little crazy – I’ve stamped, embossed, made flowers, added pre-made flowers, used rub-ons, perfect pearls, buttons, brads, twine and even a bit of cardboard. There are more then five leaves added there is a plastic one sitting under the rose on the heart, two under the felt rose, two leaf brads under the rose in the top right of the photo- oh and all the leaves on one of the backing strips.
Also there is a challenge going over at Scrapbookers Anonymous to use a die-cutting machine- so I dusted (I know a swear word in this house) down my Bigshot and cut a number of flowers, layered them up and glue on a button then added to my LO- quite liking it so my Bigshot may be able to stay out a little while longer.
Thank you for taking the time to have a peek- stay safe xxxx
