Lucy's Sketches

I mentioned in my last post that I have begun my second term with My Sketch World using the wonderfully verstaile sketches of Lucy Chesna. I am so fortunate to be a part of that wonderfully supportive and encouraging forum and gallery. As part of my Design Team application I submitted a never-before-been- seen layout called Live The Everyday Moments based on one of Lucy's sketches.
I used some old Basic Grey I had in my stash and stitched the outside. I used my Martha Stewart border punch and butterflies too.  I added some chipboard, rub-ons, Fancy Pants coffee filters and a few word brads. The crowning glory, though,  is the coffee filter flower I made with the Rollie Rosie on top. I have attached my Two Scrapbook Friends You Tube Video Tutorial here for your interest!
Here's a close up of the flower too!
The flower petals are punched with a scallop punch and folded for depth and fluffi-ness. The rollie rosie is twirled with the Imaginesce petal roller tool; a new favourite of mine!

I hope you will check out Lucy's sketches and join in the forum. We have a wonderful "ABC" contest going on for the entire month of September. Pop on over and get your spot to play along and be entered to win the big prizes!

See you there!
