Hi all! I'm early this month completing my calendar layout because... I am guest designing at Stick It Down again! My June layout was chosen as a favorite, so I got to work with this sketch this month:
Here is what I came up with:
I was also inspired by the July 3rd Got Talent challenge at My Scraps and More which was to do hand stitching. I went a little crazy with it, in fact. I stitched 5 large flowers on my page. I think the reason I rarely stitch on a page is because, when I do, I go all out and it takes HOURS. I am happy with the texture it added, although a lot of it ended up being covered. :(
I used some very OLD letter stickers for my title. The font was so dainty, they got a bit lost against the background, so I outlined them with a blue pen. You can see some of my stitching below and one of my flower clusters.
And my second flower cluster and some more stitching.
