I have been trying to use the Project 12 sketches each month to create a layout that uses the photos that are cute, but otherwise wouldn't call for their own layout. Here is the sketch for April:
And here is my interpretation. I used one of my favourite lines from Imaginisce, "Twitterpated" and I was glad to be able to use a whole sheet of the adorable animal paper included in the collection.
My little sister became engaged to her boyfriend at the beginning of May. They took a little vacation to NYC and Wayne popped the question in Central Park. Now she has a lovely diamnond ring and I am getting another brother-in-law!!
I recently bought a copy of this magazine. While creating this layout, I challenged myself to use at least 2 techniques found in the mag. The first technique I tried was the use of laser-cut paper through a peek-a-boo opening. I even stitched around the opening just like they suggested. The second technique I tried was to create a funky photo border using a row of scalloped half-circles. I really like how this border brings the photo into prominence even though there is a large hot pink butterfly in the opposite corner!!
Thanks for stopping by!! ( Hey look, Meghan!! You're on the blog!!)
My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit! I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."
