July 15th Sketch is Up!

Hi everybody, so today is July 15th . . . well at least it is for another 2 hours, which means it's time for the July 15th sketch from Sketch 'N' Scrap!  This will be my second contribution as a design team member and so far, I've got to tell you, I am loving this.  Not only am I getting more pages done than ever before, thanks to the two wonderful blogs I belong to, but I'm getting them done with much more ease.  Having a plan of attack going into a layout means I spend less time fiddling with every little detail.  I don't always follow sketches to the letter, but I take great inspiration from them and they really help me in planning what I'm doing.

So here is the sketch from Sketch 'N' Scrap . . .

. . . and here is my take on the above sketch!

As usual I did alter the sketch a little to fit with the size and type of photo I had, but I decided to stick pretty close to home for the rest of it.  Even though this is a autumn layout I didn't use any fall themed paper or embellishments at all.  I loved the bright colours of the new washi tape I had just purchased, and how they made the black and white photo pop even more.  The stitching was done by hand, which is tedious I know, but my sewing machine hasn't worked in close to 10 years, and I don't think I'll be purchasing a new one for awhile!
