dare to Dream


Thank you to all of the Men & Women who have served for our country! Happy Memorial day to everyone and thanks for stopping by!!

Today I have a nuts sketch for you, it's a 2pager that I chose to do as a single. I used the right side and flipped it to match the oreintation of the subject in my photo. You can see the sketch here.
And my layout below:
I used some 3 Bugs in a Rug papers I picked up because my daughter is so into owls right now and I loved that I could use that to reflect her personality a little. 
As you can see I kept the borders of the sketch by using a loop border punch and then added one strip of pp accented by a green border to follow the sketch but left the top strip out, letting the title and my journaling define that area. I then added owls for a visual triangle (pop dotting the lower left one for a little dimension) and for a more subtle one, pink bling. I also used brown ink on my edges and added some banners to the top with a little washi tape. 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to comment below. Don't forget to go see the rest of the dt's layouts, you won't be disappointed! Nuts About Sketches
