Love Each Moment and some cool news to share :)
Scrapfriends have another awesome sketch to inspire us this month. Check this out!
Isn't that cool? I love the background so much on it that I wanted to try to re-create it as closely as possible. I used patterned paper to mark out the background shapes then filled in the space with masks and inks. I had so much fun!
I chose the photo of Benji and Sophie at the playground not only because it is cute but also because the geometric shapes of the playground equipment that they are playing on really goes well with the background design on this sketch. I machine stitched the circles around the photo to really make it 'pop'.
I cut my title using my Cameo, and I also used it to cut the arrows and chevrons.
In case you want to read my journaling here is a close up of it :)
Today I also have some super-exciting news. Recently one of my favourite challenge blogs CSI did a design team call. Guess who's on the new CSI design team??? Moi! I am thrilled. I really love CSI and make a point of playing along with their challenges every week if I can. The new DT is really mind-blowing. So much talent there. I feel so lucky to have been invited onto the team (thanks Debbie xxx) and more than a little nervous!
Have a great day :)
