~Ryanne! Stuck on U Sketches

Yay!  Its Friday! Is it hot enough for everyone? Sending prayers for all those who are dealing with drought, flooding, fire, and extreme heat. I pray you will all be safe and in good health. Now on to this weeks sketch reveal at Stuck on U Sketches! I used the February Limited Edition kit from My Creative Sketchbook.

I would like to introduce you to my cute neighbor girl, Ryanne, who lives across the street from me.  I get lots of enjoyment watching her antics  from my living room! She is a girl who knows what she wants! Her uncle did this photo shoot of her for her dance recital. It turned out to be her mom's Birthday the other day so I gave her this layout as a Birthday gift.  I couldn't help myself!

 This weeks sketch is brought to us by our very own Nanne!

I used my kraft knife and cut through the paper along the flowers on the lower left side of the background paper so I could slip the layers and photo in behind.

 I used half of a Dusty Attic circle w/flourish.  I soaked  the edges of the flourish with water and separated the layers. I painted it with Gesso, inked the edges and stamped it with a fine script stamp.

I used 2 of my newest Martha Stewart border punches on the layers of paper.  LOVE them!!!  I doodled some squiggly lines around the perimeter of the layout.

 I printed off an extra picture of the balloons on photo paper and fussy cut them out, pop dotted them, and used ric rac for the string.

 Just a close up of the main flower cluster.

The journaling is a reminder to Ryanne to remember who God made her to be and to "always be true to herself".

Thanks to everyone who takes the time to look at my work and for you encouraging comments.  They mean the world to me!  Please go on over the the SOUS blog and see how the other amazing designers have interpreted Nanne's awesome sketch!
