Hi everyone! Alex here today with this week's sketch challenge.
I prefer to make my sketches in the Silhouette Studio. I often use existing cut files in my designs which is pretty handy. In today's sketch, I have used the Love Arrows shape designed by Karla Dudley.
And here is how my layout turned out.
I have used the lovely Daily Flash Snapshots collection: Focus and Aperture patterned papers, one of the papers from the 6x8 paper pack and Flash Blurbs. I wanted to make my photos pop out of the layout, so I used 3D dots to stick them down with.
I sent my sketch to my dear friend Suz, knowing that she would amaze me. She always does. Here is her beautiful layout.
I stacked my photo and journaling card as depicted in Alex's sketch (one above the other) and the large acorn and sentiment as the title work. Instead of the heart, I added the small tag with the Pillow Puff acorn on it. Then I embellished and stitched away! My favorite part? Making the falling leaves from the B side of the Hayride patterned paper from the Daily Flash Apple Cider collection, sewing them down, and leaving some of the thread to dangle down like the falling leaves' paths to the ground!
Suz's lovely layout is made using the Daily Flash Apple Cider collection: Pillow Puffs, Squirrel washi tape, Hayride patterned paper (both A & B sides) and Snap Caps. She also added some cute Travel Girl buttons.
