Happy Tuesday! It's Jill here, with this week's sketch, which takes the guesswork out of deciding where to place the items on a layout. Just round 'em up -- arrange them in a circle, stitch over and around them, place the title and some journaling in the middle, and you're done! My own layout incorporates a series of labels, on which I added my journaling -- a list of my daughter's pet peeves. She and I had some fun coming up with this list together. After printing the journaling, I arranged the labels in a circle over a piece of Postcard patterned paper from the new Travel Girl line and stitched over them.
The labels are from the Sugar Shack and Licorice label sticker sheets. I get a kick out of how the abbreviation "No." on a few of the stickers actually comes to mean "no" here, placed amidst a list of the things that get on my daughter's nerves. I also love how the "This Way" Travel Girl tin pin starts to answer the question posed in the journaling just under the title.
The die-cut title is taken from an expression my daughter uses often. I like the visual pop of the bright yellow (from a piece of Daily Flash Snapshots Focus paper) against the aqua background.
I'd love to see how you make this sketch your own. Be sure to share your layout in the October Afternoon Flickr gallery. Happy scrapping!
