This is the sketch for challenge #99 ...............
............ & this is my page based on the sketch
As I now look at the finished page here on my blog I notice that I haven't put the date on it - it was a September morning in 2011. That isn't a problem as I have not printed it yet so I can add that in before I do. Because I have made my own small album for storing these pages they are all at 8" x 8".
Mind you I will have to do some 12" x 12" at some time as I have 2 lovely albums awaiting pages.
Anyway back to this page ...........
The background paper & the gold layer for the photographs are from one of CaroLines Silhouette Kits & I thought the colours went well with the sunrise photographs. This particular background also had some movement in it that compliments the clouds.
The little bird that I used, rather than the bunting, to go cross the photos was a punch from the Craft Artist software that I use to produce my pages. I then just copied & pasted to produce the string. The frames are not proper frames they are photo edges so when the photo is dropped into position it makes it look like a photo with torn edges has been placed on the page. I like that finish.
When a sketch doesn't have lots of embellishments on it I sometimes find it hard to find the right background - it's the empty space. But I think this one worked OK - what do you think?
I am not usually around to capture this sort of photograph, but that morning it had found a gap in the curtain & woke me - then it was a mad dash to get the camera, open the window & take photos.
Do pop over to the Sketches In Thyme blog & have a look at what others have done with this sketch. Why not have a go yourself - it is fun & you get those photos out of those packets & boxes.
Thank you for stopping by & please leave a comment - even if you only say hello.
