LOAD day6

Saturday, February 15, 2014

I love LOAD! I love finding some time everyday to create a page. The most amount of time I give myself is an hour. I love that I make quick decisions and stick to them. I love that this builds confidence to continue this process when LOAD is over. But most of all, I love that I will have 28 new completed LO's.  I also like combining ideas from other sources, as I have done again today.

Speaking of LO's. I have one today to share for the Sketches in Thyme #123 reveal.  Here is the sketch
Such a versatile sketch! I love it!  Here is what I created.

Yes, I knew what photos I wanted to use when I saw the hearts al over the sketch. Also, because LOAD day 6 prompt is No journaling. Use supplies to support the story you tell with your photos. Well, alrighty then.  This works well together!   I started the page by flipping the sketch on its side. I knew in this particular paper collection were these large letters. I cut them out, traced them, hand stitched around them, then used pop dots to raise them within the stitching. Title + photos =story! Throw in a few heart embellishments (which are hard to come by in my stash) and that was about it! I did add the journaling after the fact. There is a cute little statement that works well for a challenge at My Scraps & More...

Thanks for taking a look today. I am on track with LOAD, just a little out of order... Head over to Sketches in Thyme and join our sketch challenge this month.
