good morning everyone. danni here with this week's sketch. today i decided to switch it up a little and create a lo sketch but it could easily translate into a card sketch or mini album sketch.
with all the cute banners in the Farmhouse and Sidewalks lines, fun chipboard stickers, Miscellany packs and Little Flyers, i wanted to create a sketch that would include a banner as one of the focals.
here's the sketch
joining me today is marcy who created this amazing lo. i love her splatters, her notebook, her titlework, her banner, it's all...well, "rad"

here's what marcy had to say about the sketch creating process
"I made a few tweaks to the sketch. I kept the little notebook element in the middle, moved the title down and extended the banner. In my little notebook I included additional photo and some journaling as well as layered some labels from the Farmhouse collection. To make my banner I trimmed triangles from the patterned papers and also trimmed some of the flags in half."
and here is my interpretation

i created my banner, cutting one of the lace banners from the Farmhouse pp here:Clothesline, die-cut a scalloped circle which i folded in half and stitched onto the banner, cut an additional block banner from the same sheet of pp, layered on top of the lace banner, layered with some buttons and tin pins and even a paper strip from one of the pp titles.
i decided to move my title down so as to allow the butterfly to remain the focal on the left side.
the layered notebook element inspired me to layer my picture several times and create a layered large butterfly focal. to create the butterfly, i printed the large butterfly image on the backside of my pp, decreased it in size, printed it on the backside of additional pp. i then layered the butterflies and stitched them together.
love all the chipboard pieces in the Miscellany packs, they are so much fun to create with and layer
we hope you enjoyed today's sketch. if you can play along with us this week, please share how this sketch inspired you in our OA Flickr group.
