I confess...I created all of my summer sketches a couple of months ago before Ben got home from Iraq. This week's was the last of the pre-prepared sketches, but it's been a while since I did it so when I sat down to create, I simply found photos that worked and followed the sketch.
Well, I posted the sketch yesterday and at the time, I was about 3/4 of the way through with this layout. What I realized after I posted the sketch, was that I was working with the sketch turned sideways. Normally, I am a huge fan of turning sketches to create different looks, but for this one, I really think that it works better using the original orientation of the sketch rather than how I used it...LOL! I feel another layout coming on using this sketch turned the right way, mainly just to see if it really does look better that way
But anyway, this is what I did with the sketch turned...
For this layout, I used the Unity July kit of the month (the main background, the owl, and the swirl stamped in white around the edge of the brown cardstock....it's no longer available, but there is an equally cute one for August that you can see here.) I also used the Unity Tea Time Pattern Background stamped with white StazOn on the green cardstock.
For the "O" detail on the Kat's New Owl Friend title, I layered a couple of K&Company tags, as well as a small scallop circle punch, flower and Little Yellow Bicycle Epoxy button.
