Happy Weekend, everyone! Missy back with you here. Today I'm sharing the newest sketch over on the My Scraps & More Sketch Blog. It's Sketch #116, and it was designed by the amazingly talented Jessy Christopher! I'm a huge fan of her work, and I was so excited to work with her sketch.
I love the diagonal elements, and I decided to mimic the sketch pretty closely. I shrunk everything down a little smaller. I printed three small photos of my daughter dancing, spinning and playing around on the patio, just having herself a great time :) I used the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection for this, and added some white gesso over the strips to tone them down a bit. I did a bit of the packaging technique with gelatos and a few ink sprays to give color to the background. The text part on the inside of the strips is tissue paper from Hazel and Ruby.
I fussy cut this flower from the floral patterned paper and layered it under the photos, which I popped up with pop dots. I also added some leaf rub-ons here as well. These colors together are so pretty!
I stitched through all the strips and then added a fun loopy loop die cut I've had laying around in my stash bin. It's from The Cut Shoppe.
Here's another look at the strips and die cut. I love how the black thread pops off these colors.
Finally, the title area combines a lot of elements. I used my Cameo to cut "free" on white cardstock. I used gelatos and my water brush to give it some color and then lightly traced the edges with a black pen. "Fancy" is a rub-on, and the Party Animal is from the sticker sheet. I added the red heart rub-on and then a few of the foam hearts, which are Thickers.
