So, here I am tackling all of my natural rebellion and obstinance in an attempt to follow the My Mind’s Eye March Sketch Challenge.
I have a hard time following sketches but I have been given great advice from a fellow scrapbooker- Suzanna Lee, a sketch is just a jumping off point. So I dived right in and first thought about how I wanted to showcase all that beautiful My Mind’s Eye Collectable Collection. The sketch does envision layers which speaks to my style. So I took four 6×6 papers and layer them over a background paper and then placed elements in a perpendicular line against these pictures of my sweet Elsie running down the path in our backyard. I took the picture element in the sketch and stretched it to two pictures. And I decided to switch places for the tag and journaling elements on the top corners. I placed a paper strip and washi tape underneath a brad in place of the tags and some stamping in place of the journaling.
