playing along ...


I  thought i would play along with Creative Scrappers.  If you have never been to this site before, it is the home of some great "sketch" designers as well as some amazing scrappers!  I have spent a lot of time on this site but this is the first time i am actually posting a layout i created from one of their sketches.


Here is the sketch ... I love the patchwork feel of this layout ... and i always enjoy the simplicity and clean lines of a grid type sketch.


And this is my interpretation of the sketch ... i usually don't do brights, but i loved the vibrant colours of these papers and they worked so well with the graffiti background in the photo.


and here is some detail ... i wanted to add the stars as in the sketch, but i also wanted a bit of softness, so i added a few premade fabric flowers!

thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!

peace love & paper< Jo
