“MY FAMILY” -Twisted Sketch #37 (twist: wood)


Here is my latest DT layout for www.twistedsketches.com , sketch #37 with the twist being “wood” -any how or any way that word inspires you. I am having so much fun with these sketches and “twists.”

Twisted Sketch #37 -twist: wood
www.twistedsketches.com -sketch #37 twist being “wood”

Journaling on this reads, ” My home will always be…with these three….My Family.”

 The “wood” twists I included on this are as follows:  used Hambly’s “Woodgrain” patterned paper on the background, wood flourish & scalloped wood trim (both from Michaels), Creative Imaginations 6 x 12 real wood thin cherry paper used for my “house”, wood miniatrue clothes pins from Craft-T,  & felt tree  from CTMH.

Other products used here include:  all patterned paper, except the cloud paper from American Crafts, Hambly’s woodgrain paper, and the green/white polka-dotted paper used in the layered grass from DCWV, is from the Early Bird collection from Cosmo Cricket; CTMH acrylic stamps used: Childhood Portrait (the grass) & Around the Block (for the house); the cherries are ephemera found in my mother’s junk drawer; pins from Memory Makers, “Love Notes”; buttons from Oriental Trading Co.;  embroidery floss from Janlynn; red rick-rack trim from my stash, unknown brand; fiskars scalloped scissors; TomBow permanent adhesive, and Timeless Touches 12 x 12 cork board and Fiber Friend stitching template/ruler.

Here are a few up-close detailed shots of the layout:
