I Love Your Silly Face

We had a great One Page sketch to work with this week for Sketch Support!  Allison added a large heart shape to the background of the sketch, behind the photo area.  Instead of going with a solid-shaped heart, I chose to cut a heart outline on my Expression and then fill in the inside with varying sized circles.





I changed the photo area on this sketch to two photos, instead of three.  The pics weren't the greatest because I took them on my phone, while we were in the car, but I changed them over to Sepia and I think that made a big difference.  I used the MME paper pack "Love Nest" on this layout.  There are some great glittered and textured papers in this pack.  I also added a little extra texture to my page by cutting some smaller hearts, embossing them with a wood-grain pattern, and popping them up with pop dots.

Wow! I really love your take on this sketch. The heart outline was an awesome idea and I LOVE the stitching. I have a small addiction to stitching. Great photos too.
