My Creative Sketches Layout - Little Girl

I am on a roll with another entry into My Creative Sketches for September - you can find all the details 'HERE'.  Kim Keane is the sketch artist, and each sketch is just gorgeous.

The layout itself is of me as a little girl, I was 19 months of age 'smelling the flowers' - more like eating, and a snail too, so my Mother tells me. All she found was shell around my mouth ...how dare she leave me unattended long enough for me to devour 'that' creature ....ewwww LOL.

I used some left over papers from quite some time ago, and of course teamed with some delicious chipboard elements from Imaginarium Designs.  I am never really good at cutting out circles, so used the Round Circle Stacker Series from Cheery Lynn Designs.
Gesso was applied with a foam brush and pounced to get a nice texture on the chipboard buttons, teamed with a little hand-dyed silk ribbon.
....and I was just a 'Little Girl', so long ago now... so what an appropriate title!
Thanks for popping in and taking the time to visit my blog...
