SKETCHABILITIES DESIGN TEAM REVEAL SKETCH #92 FOREST - BUILD A PAGE


Good morning WELCOME TO THE SKETCHABILITIES DESIGN TEAM REVEAL #92

I love this sketch and I hope you do too. There is lots of inspiration to be had at all the designers blogs so don't forget to go visit them all.
This is how I put mine together in 10 easy steps.
(Scroll down to the end for a chance to win a prize).
 First choose your background cardstock.
 Next I chose a Prima pretty paper and cut it down to11.5x11.5 inches - ink the edges.
I then used some gesso and mists to the background to soften it up a bit.
 I matted my two photos and inked the edges.
 I made some banners and adhered these and added a doily that I cut in half.
 I added a small corner piece of plain matted cardstock.
 I chose all my embellies.
I added a scalloped border using my scallop ruler (then ink).
 I added the side border that I cut from some patterned paper.
I added a cardboard layer that I painted white and made lots of little banners using a stamp.
Then I started to embellish.
I added my butterflies, a little bird and the title.
And there you have it, once you have all your bits n pieces ready this shouldn't take too long at all.
