Sunday Sketch March 18th

It's another Sunday!  And that means it's time to play with another sketch.  I think I may be a little stuck on pennants, but it seems like maybe I can keep moving them around until I exhaust the idea - LOL.  Hope you can humor me for another week or so, until my brain moves on.  However, still trying to get more photos scrapped, so I thought this was a fun take with three photos.

This is a page of my daughter with our dog.  The dog is now 12 years old and still doing so well and really attached to the kids.  I know wood grain paper, twine and accordion flowers seem to be all the rage, so I tried to include all of them together on this page created with Echo Park's This and That - Graceful Collection.  OMGoodness, the colors are so fun! And, I love the way the bright pinks and teals look against the natural wood.
I added some of Little Yellow Bicycle's Paradise Paper Flower Kit because it was a perfect match and added some nice dimension to the page.  I layered the flowers from the kit and added the twine.  Totally love how these pop off a page.  I highly recommend Tombow Mono Aqua Glue for the twine.  It sticks immediately and dries totally clear.
This title is from the This and That matching Chipboard Pieces.  I added some of Nikki Sivils' Burlap Buttons for some added texture, plus I cannot get enough of those buttons.  Going to need to figure out what I am going to do when they are all gone.
Had to get the old typewriter out again this week for some journaling.  It seems as if every manufacturer has 3 x 4 journal cards, which are really easy to type on.  I like the way the old school typewriter font looks with all of the colors and textures on this page.

I hope you find some inspiration from the sketch and please leave me a link if you use it so I can stop by and admire your interpretation.

Have a creative week!
