I love using sketches and one of my favourite places to find a sketch is Sketchy Thursdays, it's a great place for inspiration with a great design team.This sketch is for July Guest Design Team Challenge,I really like this sketch and knew straight away what photo and papers I wanted to use with it.
Here's what I've done with the sketch:
The papers I used were from The Girls Paperie- Paper Girl range which are right up my street with their pretty vintage look,it's not very often I buy the same papers twice but I will be with these.
I made a tear in one of the strips and put a piece of lace behind it and then got the sewing machine out to do lots of sewing.
I knew I wanted to use the Jenni Bowlin 'GROW' Bingo card with the photo I was using, it's a photo of Paige when she was 1 year old and had just learnt to walk,she's now nearly 15 years old.They grow up so quickly and she has grown into a beautiful young lady who I'm proud to call my daughter.
