I was reviewing my recent LO's and noticed they were getting simpler and simpler in design so decided it was time to try to layer things up again. I found a great sketch over at Kaisercraft for their Saturday Sketches competition and sat down to get started this evening. Both the photo and the papers are ones I've had for a while. I was planning on doing some basic journalling about seeing the animals at the Zoo, blah blah blah but once I started writing I was reminded of how much I was missing my family prior to this visit. I wouldn't have remembered those emotions and some of the other events of that trip without this journalling prompting me so hurray for meaningful journalling!
Here is Saturday Sketch #2 for April from Kaisercraft:
I used the three pages of Hey Birdie paper I had. It's an adorable range from 2010, I think. I didn't have any of the other embellishments or products from that range, so all the details are hand-cut from one of the sheets. Ribbons, twine and dress-pattern paper from my stash.
End result is still a simple and crispt LO but with a lot more layers than normal. My husband, Ben, said he likes it and thinks its more 'my style' than recent previous work.
This LO was published in the November edition of Scrap Street Magazine. See it here.
