Happy December! Its so hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner! I hope you all are more prepared then I am! I need to pull up my boot straps and get down to business! Today's sketch is provided to us by our own talented Sandi Clarkson specifically for SOUS! I used some older Bo Bunny winter paper that I had been hoarding for a while. The little girl in the photo is my own daughter, Jerica, at the age of 18 months. The story behind this layout is about the dress she is wearing. I made this dress for her using my High School graduation dress. I am not a seamstress by any means, but had done some sewing here and there.
To make the circle I used a circle chippie by Dusty Attic and used white crackle paint and then rubbed in a bit of Seedless Preserves Distress Ink from Tim Holt'z fall seasonal series. I really like this purple! I stamped on the circle with a script stamp and Black Archival ink. I punched some holes in the circle with my Crop-a-dile and threaded some plum tulle through the holes, finishing off with a little flower.
Here is the sketch by Sandi!
For the edges of the photo I stippled a thick textured paste with a paint brush to simulate snow.
In this flower cluster I used some Prima blooms, and some little white roses from I am Roses, and the 2 pinkish flowers I made using Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die.
I used some Thickers for the tittle, and the journaling reads" I had so much fun taking apart my grad dress and sewing 'This Dress' for my sweet little girl!"
I used a Prima flourish with bits of lace attached to it, cutting it up to get more 'bang for my buck'!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this layout as much as I enjoyed making it. Please stop by Stuck on U Sketches and check out what the other girls have done with the sketch and please join in!
Have a safe happy weekend, everyone!
