Open Sketch challenge by Sketches in Thyme

I love these open sketch challenges every month- and this is another one of my favorites. Of course its another picture of one of my dogs- I do have alot of pictures of them. My kids are all grown up and have moved away or are at college- So I have to take pictures of the spoiled girls (dogs). Well onto my layout that I did the other day of Jenna and used a sketch from my Page Maps 2 book. Even tho it is a 8 1/2 x 11 horizontal sketch I turned  mine into a 12 x 12 page- and only used one photo instead of two.

 I used Bo Bunny paper for the background and the layers of torn papers are from a 6 x 6 pack from KaiserCraft and My Mind's Eye also. I punched the circles out and heat embossed with some stamped circles on them and layered them on the side and 2 in the middle of the also heat embossed scroll circles and the flourishes with black powder. I wrote letters and dates on the circles for my little bit of journaling I did.
 I also used an acrylic overlay with a preprinted design in the corners over the picture and added black ribbon to the bottom and put some stickles in black on top of the ribbon. Then did some doodling on x x x's around the torn border underneath photo and on " Adorable " title tag.


  1. LOVE the way all those circles and flourishes make your eye move all throughout your page! And all your stitching, ribbon, and torn edges add such delicious textures! So pretty! Thanks so much for playing along with us this month at Sketches in Thyme!
