6.16 Sketchy Thursdays Reveal!

I really loved the sketch this week.  I have had these photos printed for a while, and to be honest, having the large 4x6 with the others was really throwing me off, design wise.  So when I saw this sketch, I played around with the arrangement for a while, and a, happy with the way it came out!

I used some of the fun anf bright papers and stickers and journaling spots from Jillibean Soup Watermelon Gazpacho line.

On the background, I drew a circle with a pencil and went over it with an Adirondack paint dauber in Aqua (one of m new favorite supplies!).   Then I hand stitched over my pencil lines with yellow thread.

I layered a whole bunch of journaling spots and some scalloped circles cut from the yellow paper.  I used this color combo because I love the contrast of the blue with the orange, and although it is hard to tell, Charlotte had yellow in her shirt, too.

I have been working on pages for SEI and Magpie Club for next month, so not a lot to share in the next few days, but I do have one or two others that I am working on that I hope I can share! Have a great weekend!
