My Creative Sketches January

Wow, January has really snuck out from under me. 
I've been totally slack with my challenges this month. 
Bring on February.

Managed to finish a quick take on the My Creative Sketches January sketch.

Layout "Trouble"

I attached the papers before applying a thin layer of gesso to give it a more muted look. Then I stitched around the papers - leaving the ends of the stitching on the layout.

I also wanted to do a boys layout without including a floral embellishment - harder than it sounds. 
I was super tempted to add some flowers. But overall I'm pretty happy with the layout.


CM Paper, gesso, stitching, Cricut Artbooking & Boys will be boys, CM stickers, CM Cut outs, washi tape, plasterers tape, twine, Kaisercraft Mister Fox collections

D-Lish Scraps January Mood Board

I was instantly struck by the bright, vibrant colours of the D-Lish January mood board and picked out the perfect photo of Master C chomping down on his first "real" food.

I used the colours of the mood board and added some straws for dimension. I titled my page "Heart Fruit" in line with the Tutti Frutti theme.

Materials :

Echo Park "Hello Summer" paper, orange cardstock, Creative Memories "It's a Boy" paper, green patterned cardstock, Cricut "Artbooking" cartridge, American Thickers, Kaisercraft "Mister Fox" collectables, black pen
