Sketches in Thyme #53

Well its been awhile since I have posted anything on my blog- have been on a 2 week vacation and now I'm back and ready to scrap. So, here is the first challenge I did today for Sketches in Thyme #53. I turned the sketch on its side so it would work better with my photo- and I kept all the elements the same in the layout- which worked out well. I used all K&Company Designer Stack papers , cream and black cardstock.
The triangle strip on the left side & the circle cut on the right is the front cover of the paper stack showing all the different papers in the set- but I cut it out as a strip and a circle and used that as the background paper- since the patterns were similar to the other papers I am using in this layout. I inked all the edges in coffee bean brown and added Thicker letters by American Crafts for my title "ERIC" and sub title I wrote around on the circle with black Zig writer.
I then found in my large stash of flowers some multi layered yellow flowers and some little silk blue flowers and scattered them on the page. I drew my own flourishes with black puffy paints and pop dotted some K&Company butterfly cut outs
I then got out some of my favorites embellishments to use -Stickles and added some bling to the flowers and the center of the butterflies- then last I folded up the one corner and added some dots and I finished my first layout in two weeks. It felt so good to be in my scrapbook room again.
