Birds of a Feather
My kids LOVE the park (I am sure your's do too!) These are pictures I snapped last spring of the kids having a blast with their dad. I am using the layout for the Sketchy Thursdays challenge this week. The sketch is below.
Cricut Cartridge: Storybook
Paper, Bird embellishments, alphabet: Crate Paper: Lillian Collection
Hot fix crystals: Imaginisce 4mm (pink, clear, black assortment)
Tools: Walnut Hollow: Creative Jewel Tool
Buttons: From my stash
The Hows To:
I had previously cut the bracketed flourish out from the Cricut Storybook cartridge. I thought the negative space left was pretty so I held it until I found a project for it. And today was the day!
I layered the sheet with the negative space on top of the blue pattered paper. I pleated the strip of bird paper and used the dots left over from an old scalloped border for the coral colored circles.
This was the first time I used "i rock" products from Imaginisce and I am addicted. Though I used Walnut Hollows Creative Jewel Tool (because I don't own the i rock tool) I found these rhinestones were very easy to affix - I loved the result and plan on blinging up everything soon.
Thanks for looking,
