Follow Your Heart – a layout for Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style
|Start:||This week’s sketch over at Sketches in Thyme – Project Life Style is one that I designed. Yes, me of all people! I was playing around with scraps one day in my studio and made several sketches for pocket cards. Note that I have no digital sketch making skills so I used actual scraps of product, photographed them and turned them black and white.|
I sent them to Kimberly with my fingers crossed that she might like to use one of them. It turned out that she liked all three. So you will see one a month in September through November.
I used the corner of a Fancy Pants transparency to get the background effect you see here. In place of the rectangular scrap of paper, I printed a quote in box on the white background card. Since I had made a slit in the transparency at the heart to insert the card for the sketch, I tied a little twine around it for the layout.
I used the pre-printed portion of the sheet on the right to determine how I would embellish on the left, adding a doily and stamping with the burst pattern from Stampin Up’s Kinda Eclectic set. Buttons, bakers twine and Tim Holtz washi tape add the finishing touches.
|Story:||This is one of those introspective pages that I do now and again, and I’ve written a little note to myself on the hidden journal card. Actually it is the younger me giving the older me advice, instead of the usual way round. Like I said, I was in an introspective mood.|
|Stash:||Other than the journal card I made, most of the rest of this is from My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart collection. It is the last few bits of a class kit from several years ago, and I am glad to have finished it off.|
