Sketchy Thursdays 9.22.11

Woo hoo! Another Sketchy Thursdays layout done for me! :) I haven't participated in the ST challeges in a couple of weeks, and I had some scrappy time tonight, so I whipped out a layout pretty quickly! I think it took less than an hour for me to do this layout!

I am still in love with my October Afternoon paper, so I used some yummy 5&Dime on this page! The background page is from who-knows-where! I got it in a prize from Club Creating Keepsakes, and it didn't have a label when I got it. I'm thinking it's from GDC Studios. I'm not positive though.

I DID use the sketch on this page, although you can barely tell it! :P Do you ever do that sometimes?? I combined the vertical sewing along with the circle element to create my focal point in the pictures. I glued strips of paper on the page, then used a CD as a mask (a reject CD, I might add) and misted the whole page in blue. Then I sewed the edges between the misted part and the un-misted part.  

Supplies: Patterned Paper: October Afternoon; Mist: Tattered Angels; Letter Thickers: American Crafts; Flowers: Prima; Brad: K&Company; Plastic Bow: Jenni Bowlin; Ribbon: American Crafts
