Lil' Bug


Supplies : Paper by Scenic Route, October Afternoon, and Sassyfrass; Transparency by Making Memories; Journaling element and circle by MME; Thickers and acrylic flowers by American Crafts; Buttons by PTI; Forest Friends Glitter Acetate Shapes by Colorbok


This was so not my usual style but I love how fun it turned out. I wanted to try and embrace that collage type look with the #19 sketch from Inspired Blueprints and I took on a fresh and funky (at least for me :D) approach to my choice of papers and patterns. I love the mix of bold flowers and small prints, plus putting it all on the grid paper made it feel more like play time after school to me, which is exactly when this picture was taken. Some very popping embellies and this page is one of those that instantly makes me smile, both because the picture is so darling as well as the page. There's something about participating in every sketch, much like a weekly challenge. It gets me using products I might not use together, trying styles I normally would shy away from, and above all it gets me to be more brave. After all, art is more than just pleasing the eye. It's a creative adventure! Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific Tuesday!
