My Creative Sketch - February Sketch -

 It is that time of the month again, when a new sketch is released by My Creative Sketches! Below is the sketch for February, with the gorgeous prize Pam has available to one random winner.  All details of the sketch can be found 'HERE'.
The beautiful prize pack Pam has organised for one lucky winner!
I created my layout using the My Creative Scrapbook, Main Kit. The backing paper I highlighted with texture paste, and the Mini Cubist Crafters Workshop Template. Once the texture paste was dry, I applied water colour pencil to highlight the texture pieces - a 'how to can be found this month on the My Creative Scrapbook Blog'. I also created some concertina flowers using varying sized strips, measuring 12" in length. Previous to scoring and folding, I drew on sewing lines to match with the rest of the layout. Fussy cut hearts, added dimension from not placing them down flat on the layout, but adhering only the central part, and folding edges up.  Buttons with crochet thread bows, and lots of hidden journaling.

The photograph is of my son, Jesse - such a sweet smile and curious little expressions in these photographs.  He's such a beautiful little boy (and fast growing up).
I do hope you will consider playing along in the My Creative Sketch, for February!
Sandie
