Hi scrappy friends, here is a layout I have done using a sketch from SKETCHABILITES No. 79 for my inspiration and pictures of our new puppy. Hope you like it.
For this one, as I have used three photos, I didnt use any patterned paper ,as I thought it might all be a bit busy.
I used four different colour cardstock, and kept it quite simple.
I matted my photos and adhered them onto the coral cardstock then double matted this and glued these onto my background card.
Then it was time to embellish. I cut out three arrows and matted them onto some brown card.
I die- cut three hearts and glued these down.
I started to add my flowers, leaves and branches.
I used some of my homemade paste and a honeycomb mask for the corner.
I then die cut the title - and there you have it. Why not give it a go.
