A new sketch is up on the Lily Bee blog today. Leslie and I got to work with it and I love how both are so very different.
The sketch had triangles coming down on the left with the photo to the right. So I stayed with the idea of the layout, but made the triangles smaller and added in some details of my own.
Continuing with our using Negative Space theme on the Lily Bee blog this week, after cutting the triangles from the pattern paper, I flipped it over to use as a mask and added some stamping and then flipped back over to adhere. I was going to use the same color triangles cut out to pop dot, but I liked the added color.
Using more negative space, I cut out the card with the leaf pattern to tuck behind the photo. The speech bubbles from the Flip Flops pattern paper inspired me to mask and ink the speech bubbles on the cardstock. They were fun to fill in and stitch around...although time consuming, I love the look.
So that's my Archie boy...18 last month, don't know his exact date of birth, but we know it was in March. We got him when he was about 2 months old. He's my boy and I mean that literally...he has nothing to do with anyone else, but me. Although, with his older age, I think he is warming up to Dennis and Emma ;) He tolerates them, where he gives me the look, "sit down, so I can sit on your lap." I am struggling to type this with him on me now. That's my boy. Hope we have more years together.
