Elin made such an interesting sketch--so fun to work with! I flipped the sketch horizontally to accommodate the orientation of my photo. I used a Studio Calico kit (Metropolitan), along with a few things from my stash, to make my page. We've been having rain-rain-rain, so I had to take my picture indoors, and it's not the best picture in the world. That's my nephew in the picture.
I haven't journaled yet, but I plan to write some stories on the back about how ever since he was an itty-bitty guy he was so smart.
Here are a few details. I always save the label that comes on the paper bag from Studio Calico because they're so cute, and that's what I used in place of the rectangle at the top in the sketch. I've been on a mission to incorporate old stash on my pages. Those 3 words that I stitched over "Studio Calico" in the center are "Words to Go." Remember those? By K&Co? They came in a Chinese take-out container and there were about 5,000 words and phrases in there! The "workbook" and "schoolhouse" bits came off of the tearstrip of an October Afternoon paper that was in the kit.
That tab at the top is also really old. It's an old stencil definition tab by Autumn Leaves. I still have a whole bunch of them. I didn't have room or the whol thing, so cut it in pieces and tucked part of it here and part on the side.
Those Maya Road kraft doilies are so cool! They came in that Studio Calico kit. And how fun are the BasicGrey brads? "The rest of the story" was from a Cosmo Cricket tear strip.
Love the "pi radius squared" brad! When I was almost finished with my page, I felt I needed something yellow on the ticket to fill in the space and go with the yellow polka dot Crate Paper print, and I found these little Heidi Grace metallic dots in my stash.
You should go see what the rest of the team did with this fun sketch--awesome work over there! I hope you'll play along. You'll have lots of fun, and you may just win a prize from Vicky Alberto's Etsy Shop, our September sponsor.
