My Sweet Boy – Twisted Sketch #49 with the twist of “color”

May12

Well…here is my latest DT assignment…now live over at www.twistedsketches.com ! The “twist” for this week’s sketch is COLOR, any how, any way that inspires you.   Please come over and join in.  Post a link to your layout under the comment section to join in the challenge!

I had a lot of fun with this sketch and “twist.” Of course, I find myself saying that with every sketch…but it is true! 

I used my square 1 7/8th inch punch from the Paper Studio to punch out the blocks of paper…glued them down then hand-stitched the blocks down in a patch-work design.  This would be a great way to use up scraps!

The paper here is mostly from several of my Scarlet Lime kits & they include:  Glitz Design: Olivia Roses; Lilybeedesign: Savannah, Twirl, Fly a Kite, & Hello Sunshine posies; Studio Calico: Lithograph; Kaisercraft: Devonshire Collection/Victorian Rose; the Green patterned paper is a Scarlet Lime exclusive paper; Cosmo Cricket: material girl; and  Teresa Collins: Mr & Mrs Damask paper. Other paper used here and not in my Scarlet Kits include: Close to My Heart orange paper from Felicity Collection & the background paper is from My Mind’s Eye: Love Me Do.

Other products used for this include: Chipboard multi-colored letters from the Paper Studio; Self-Adhesive Die-cut circle stickers from Rimenisce, Bazzill’s Just the Edge banner; CTMH chipboard circles; Buttons from my Scarlet Lime kits, and flowers from Sassafras Lass. 

This looks simple enough…but I won’t lie…the hand-stitching took AGES (see the picture of the back of the layout below)… I wanted to give it a machine-stitch look. 

Here are a few up-close detailed photos.

TFL!

    Your fingers must have hurt so much after making that. It really does have a machined look. Well done. It’s a stunning LO. I have masses of SL pp, what a great way to use them up.
    BTW, I’m so jealous of your Tuesday nights and love that idea : )
    Have a good week xx
