March Challenge ~ Stuck Sketches ~ "Meow" 12x12 Layout



Hi All!!

Happy Easter and hope you had a wonderful Scrappy Long Weekend.

i have a layout here today i have completed for a challenge over on Stuck Sketches. Here is a link to a sketch challenge

and here is the sketch that i have been working with:

I was really inspired by the circle elements and the tag in the sketch. Although i only had 1 photo, i have taken 2 tags and layered them on either side of photo to achieve a similar look. 

I have added some thread with a peg in the right bottom corner of the photo strip and some circle element at the top left. I have torn the bottom edge of the photo strip instead of using a scallop - i just liked the casual look that it added added and instead of using a middle pattern paper piece like the sketch called for, i decided to make my own background! I used Gelatos and the "packaging technique" to add colour to the background and then did some stamping with various shapes and black Stazon ink.

I have also done some hand-stitching on the tags to add a bit of colour to them and some "different" texture.

Hope you like it!

Have a nice scrappy day!
