Fall For You and a great new sketch blog

Good afternoon! Today, I want to share with you a design I created using a sketch created by Kristine Davison from My Scraps and More. Every month there will be at least 4 new sketches! You can link up your creation's post/photo to the blog and share in the fun! You can check out the first sketch here.

And here's my creation.
I used two older photos of my daughter and trimmed them down to 3.5 x 3.5. After splattering some watercolours, I matted them together on one sheet of white and layered them over a pieces of patterned paper that was stitched in contrasting thread. I added a tabbed piece to allow my title to 'pop' off the page, the banner and the 'ribbon' shape add flow across the design.

I really enjoyed playing along this week and already have plans for sketch #2!

I hope you'll stop over and be inspired! Until next time, keep doing what you love.
