This week, we are seeing stars at Sketch Support!!  Allison provided us with the cutest One-Page Sketch (#17).  I thought the design of this sketch, would be perfect for a silly photo I had of my son, wearing Mr. Potato Head glasses while I was getting him ready for bed!  The sketch was originally designed for a landscape photo, but my photo was portrait, so I rotated the sketch.

Instead of keeping the star in the center completely solid, I cut an outline and then added a smaller, solid star to the center.  I have been stitching a lot on my pages lately, so I added a fun stitched border around the edge of the page and used baker's twine to stitch around the star.  Of course, I ran out of the color I was using before I finished, but was able to find another color that was pretty similar to finish it off!!  :)  To add a little more texture to my page, I embossed the small stars and the cloud behind my title.  I also added some messy paint splatters...well, because boys are messy and I thought it would be a fun touch to a little boy page!!

You can head over to Sketch Support and check out the other variations I made to the sketch and also see what the very talented Penny and Carolyn did with the One-Page Sketch.
