Hey everyone. Here's my take on the October sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash. The photo is of my niece and nephew on the first day of school. For this layout I rotated the sketch to the right. The pattern paper was from Echo Park Paper's 'Teacher's Pet' collection. For the background, I used as a mask, some maple leaves cut out from a die from Memory Box. Once the leaves were positioned I sprayed some distress stain over them, and added some splatters. I then added some more leaves that were cut out from pattern paper, and stitched them down. Very pleased with how this turned out!!
The other part of this challenge was to use metal on the layout. The metal I used was a large gold paper clip that I placed over my photo. I also cut out some of the little circles from the pattern paper and layered them to the left of my photo. I added some wood veneer pieces from Studio Calico and Teresa Collins.
Below is the sketch. Take a second to head over to Scrap Our Stash and see all the great inspiration. Thanks for stopping by.
