Counting the Days

The second challenge from Scrap Whispers is a sketch. It has a lot more embellishments than I normally use so I used it as a starting point rather than following it to the letter.

I decided to use a single landscape photo which meant using a larger panel of paper for my photo and title in the middle of the page. I kept the scalloped edges and the stitching from the sketch, and added a trail of circles punched from my patterned paper.

The title may require explaining if you can't read the journalling - the piece of cardboard on my son's lap is his advent calendar. You wouldn't be able to tell the time of year from the photo, so it was great that I had a couple of winter papers that matched his clothes and each other so well. The Pebbles paper is double sided which gave me the snowflakes and the green.

  1. this layout is gorgeous - my favourite of yours yet. I love the scattering of embellishments and the mute tones of the paper. Lovely
