Loved | Paper Issues 30 Days of Sketches - Sketch 25

 I finally finished all 30 sketches! However, I'm SO behind on posting them, so I'm doing some quick blog posts to catch up. Here's my page for Sketch 25:

Here's the sketch. I followed the basic design but had to use fewer photos because my pictures were oriented differently, plus I scrap 8 x 8.

Here are a few closeups.  I'm the worst kit hoarder, so I made a decision to try to use kits on as many of these sketch layouts as I could. I used Paper Issues' August 2019 "You Should See Me in a Crown" kit.

As I was thinking about those circles, I remembered that I had a bag of raw chipboard circles from eons ago. I used my circle punch and just glued the circles to the chipboard for added dimension. I still have a TON more of those circles, but I'm glad to have used a few on this layout.

The leaves were fussy cut out of a Paige Evan paper in the kit.

After I had everything laid out, I decided the background looked to stark white, so I added some watercolor in matching colors.

Did you know that Paper Issues has kits? They actually have two each month, a large one, and a small sort of sampler kit called a swag bag. They sell out fast, but it's cool that you don't have to subscribe. Whenever you shop at Paper Issues, please use my discount code Debbi (no e on the end) and you'll get 20% off of everything in the store, including kits, every single day!
