Boston Trip

Christy's Sketch #3 uses Struck Sketches, January 15, 2016. Christy's Pinterest board can be found here. When I saw this sketch I thought I would be able to whip this one out in no time at all.

In reality it took me forever. I couldn't get my pictures to print correctly, then I didn't like the how the paper was behind the photos. But my final layout I love!

I started with my pictures and trimmed them down to 3 1/8 x 2 1/2. I had originally printed them out at 3x3 not even thinking that I needed a smaller size otherwise they would go all the way up to the top. So I added a photo mat behind them as they were just blending into the background. I had a small skinny strip of the plaid paper that I cut and layered onto the top and bottom.

I pulled out the die cut stitched frames I had left over from making cards, the chipboard tags covered in a scrap piece of paper, three blue buttons,  two of the light blue flowers that were rescued from something I threw away, the felt flower ribbon and the "special" bead" . All of this was from my reject box.

I added the paperclip, small blue flower, label and the enamel dots from my stash.

After looking at the sketch again I added a few rub ons in each of the embellishment clusters.

As for my reject box I an officially out of Twine and Embroidery Yarn so I will be adding new to my Counterfeit Kit - Enjoy the Little Things.
