When I see a sketch using a larger photo (anything bigger than 5X7), I either shy away from it or use many smaller photos in a grid to get the same look. This time, though, I had a photo in mind, and went with the 8X10 size photo that Nuts About Sketches Skech 355 was needing. My cousin Katharine (who can pass as my li’l sis) holding a sweet li’l kitten at Thanksgiving last year. My aunt (her mom) edited the photo and changed it to b/w, which I think is PERFECT as it goes really well with my papers/embellishments.
As you can tell, I stayed true to the sketch, minus the large title banner and just played up the embellies a bit more.
I fussy cut the letters from a piece of pattern paper.
All of the papers and embellishments, and I mean ALL of it (chipboard, stickers, sequins) are from Teresa Collins “Nine & Co” collection. I JUST bought this myself as an early birthday present to me last week from Steals.com. I just love these soft colors and gorgeous embellishments. From the sequins to the foiled chipboard.
