Well, I took off a bit from this week’s sketch over at Let’s Scrap. But that’s what I love about sketches; they’re a great starting point. This layout took a long time, I really like it but I’m not sure that all the little things I did to it were worth it. First of all, the redish color paper around the top and sides. Well it’s a piece of redish cardstock that I took watercolors to in order grunge it up a bit. I sewed the layers of grassy landscape… and then covered up most of it with the pictures J. Maybe I should have just glued it down and added some faux stitching at the edges… oh well, it’s done and I do like it. The pp is Prima, I’ve been hording these sheets, but you can only hord things for so long. I did some subtle blue misting on the background. The rainbow rub-on is Fancy Pants, the tree and little owl embellie are Basic Grey. The flowers are Michaels Recollections brand, and the wooden butterfly is by Kaiser.
And the cutie little pictures are of my little Marin shaking her bootie wearing my belly dance belt. Wait, you’re asking yourself… did she just say her belly dance belt. Well yes… I take a weekly belly dance exercise class. It’s for women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. Many of the women advance and end up performing locally but that will never be me… it’s just an enjoyable way to get out and get some exercise, if you can even call it that... it's too much fun. And it really gives you a good gut work out :).
