I have been crackin’ in the scrapbooking department for the last few days, as I just realised how close we are to the end of the month and how many challenges I have not taken part in. There are so many great challenges I wanted to take part in this month and with the cooler weather settling in it was a little easier to get started on them.
I was lucky enough to have my Piece of Cake kit turn up right before the weekend, so I have decided to complete as many challenges as I can, only using this kit ( and only adding in a few extras). So first layout is based on this sketch from the awesome site over at Scrapfriends ..
And this is what I whipped up with the kit..
|I stitched around the circles making sure the "back" of the stitch was showing to help add more subtle texture.|
Usually I freak out a little with black back grounds but I loved the brights in the kit and thought they would all work well with each other. Adding the paint over the top also help to add some cohesiveness.
