I made another page for Monica's book. In case you don't know about her story, Monica is my best friend's daughter. Her 23-year-old husband just died last month after a six-year battle with bone cancer. I'm grabbing pictures off of their Facebook pages to make her a book to remember all the precious memories from their too-short life together.
I can't remember why, but i flipped the sketch horizontally.
I also used a palette from The Color Room (it was the current palette at the time I made it, but I couldn't share at the time). I see my blue's a little off. Hmmm... I promise it was very close to what I had printed out (I always print the palettes on colored paper).
Here are some details: The little frames came from a My Little Shoebox paper. I had just ordered a sheet on clearance at 2Peas, having no idea what I was going to use it for, and it was perfect for this sketch. I just ordered several more sheets because I liked it so much!
That striped paper is really old Chatterbox. Actually, all the patterned papers (except the frame) are really old. The word stickers are by The Girls' Paperie. I've got a piece of white scalloped Doodlebug Paper Frills tucked in there. Remember those? From before there were border punches that could do the trick? That kraft paper is textured. Can't remember who it's by--it's also really old.
There are some more word stickers that I stitched down. The taupe paper is old too--by Dream Street. I added those pearls at the last minute because my page needed a little something else.
I used some old Prima flowers in place of the paint splats on the sketch. I love these old flowers and never seem to be able to use the polka dot ones but they felt perfect here. I added some perfect pearl dots here and there and on a couple of the title letters.
We had a really gorgeous reveal (as always), so you must go check out what the rest of the team made, and I hope you'll play along. This is such a fun sketch!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
