How High?



Whilst we were on our hols I cam across My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart Papers - I had come so close to getting them before and once I saw them  in the flesh I had to get a few - even better that they were on offer.  This page was made with Val Mangans sketch over at the Studio - there are lots of other gorgeous pages to inspire you to.

I started off with my misting and used the studio calico circle mask (I cut out a circle the same size as the Studio Calico mask so that I could over lap them, and I also used the mask as a stamp and printed with the misting ink).  I then chopped an inch off each side and used some of the MME paper as the background (yes I did gut it so it is only a frame of blue paper).  I added some corrugated card gesso prints, and dry brushed some gesso around the page, then I cut out the circles - for the large one I used the mask as a template and the smaller one is the inside of a roll of double sided tape.  I inked and distressed the edges.  I cut out some of the hexagons from the range, made some banners, added washi tape and staples.  I used MME Lush letters for the alpha....however ran out of 'h' so that is a 'b' and the inside of an 'o' - tried to make a feature of it!!

The photo is from my sons climbing party - he and a few friends loved it - they had 3 walls to practise on before going to the big wall....where the challenge was - how high can you go.

  15. Oh, I just love your take on the sketch, Katherine, especially your spritzy background! It adds such delicious movement, and your little hexagons are perfect! And I, too, anchored my circles with staples. Great minds think alike ;). LOL! It's such a great touch!
