I said earlier in the week that Pencil Lines had had two good sketches recently and this is the second - Sketch 261 from 27 November. 

I want to finish the album from our trip to Norway in 2009 so I adapted the sketch for three photos of Stavanger. I am working mostly chronologically in this album and the previous page was on double-sided cardstock so I kept the green background and used a mask with chalks to make the bracket shaped border. I made the circle a bit bigger to accommodate my pictures and moved the title down to the horizontal strip of paper. I also moved the punched circles and butterflies around. The patterned papers are both double-sided and have the same patterns in two colourways, co-ordination made simple.

Cardstock - First Edition Paper Spring Feast Pad
Paper - s.e.i. Dill Blossom - Dill Seed & Fennel
Letter Stickers - Authentique
Chalk - Readicut Crafts

  2. Loving your layout - that alpha is gorgeous - where is it from?

  3. Hi Sam, The alphas are from Authentique (as on the supplies list). More specifically they are the 'Classic Type' stickers from the 'Journey' collection and I bought them quite recently from
