So that means its time for another sketch at Handmade by Suzanne....and again, the sketch is brought to us by the fabulous Michelle Fowler!
And here is my take on it.....
I've been using up some of my old paper stash again for this layout....Cosmo Cricket "Wanted" for my background paper, and some 7 Gypsies that is so old that I don't know the name....and there's a few scrap pieces of BG & Fancy Pants with some strips of orange linen ribbon. Flowers are Prima, Manor House & Kaisercraft. There's also a Lovelybug corduroy button, Bo Bunny brad, EK Success punched butterfly, Martha Stewart frond punch, AC Thickers & BG alpha stickers. Plus I've had a whirl using my We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy stitch piercer (straight stitching), that I've had in my stash for a long time, but never had the handle piece to be able to use it, but they are now in stock at HBS, so I got myself one along with a heap of different stitch varieties!.....& let me tell you, this thing is fabulous & I love it!!!
Pics are from "The Big Picture" Diorama in Broken Hill, which is a 360 deg mural of outback scenes in the area....absolutely amazing! And as the journaling says, no photography was allowed, but somehow these photos ended up on my camera....ooopsy! lol
And now for some close ups....
This months sketch is a great one...so I hope you'll all be inspired to give it a go!
You can flip it, rotate it, mirror it.....whatever you want, as long as the "bones" of the sketch are there.
