“They Make My Nest” – Twisted Sketch #80


The latest sketch is now live over at www.twistedsketches.com. The “twist” for this week’s sketch was “pop-dots” any how or any way that inspires you to create.  To view the sketch click HERE.  Come on over and join in on this challenge…it’s a great sketch!  Be sure and up-load a link to your creation directly under the sketch’s comment section so we can all admire your brilliance!

I decided to use actual Pop-Dots as a design element here.  I used them on the swirls…for my flower center and as a border.  I’m really happy with the effect and will probably use them again in this manner.

Also, a complete tutorial on making this “quilted” flower will be posted on Keandra Willis’ blog Kreatorville in the near future…I will post an update when that occurs.

Here are my 2 babies hiding under Daddy’s desk in his office, a favorite hiding place when they were younger.

Supplies for this layout include:  blue polka-dotted paper from Echo Park; the bright pink paper is from Best Occasions, and the rest is all from the Paper Studio’s Poteeka Souflee.  The pop-dots used here were also from the Paper Studio.  The butterflies are Wall-Es.  Other supplies include: Watermelon ink from CTMH, Tombow Adhesive, Timeless Touches paper piercer, and Janlynn embroidery floss.

Here are some close-up photos:
