Sketchy Thursday Jan. 28

Yup, another Sketchy Thursday creation! I also used this LO for the Holiday Rewind Crop at My Sketch World. I don’t know why I thought to use the tags this way. I had a pile of them in a Christmas stash, and they are ancient, so I thought I’d use them! Believe it or not, this is one sheet of 2 sided paper. I cut out the center rectangle and just flipped it around. I did add some scrap kraft paper to the back side to help keep it in place.


I had some leftover muslin fabric from my December Daily album that I wanted to use on this LO. I thought it would go well with the houndstooth. So I cut a strip and zig zagged stitched it to the photos. I then stamped my title on a piece of CS, inked it, and then sewed that to a piece of muslin, too. I frayed the edges to give it a rustic look. That typewriter stamp set that I did the title with was a dollar bin find at Michaels a long time ago and is one of my favorite things right now.

When we went to get our Christmas tree, Charlotte would reach out and try to grab the trees as we walked through the rows. She was so interested in the texture and feel of the needles, too. She has a fascination with trees and when we go out in the backyard she will just stare at the palm trees. I love watching her enjoy nature!
