See Him Go!

After the last page, I'm coming to the end of my Basic Grey Plumeria papers and I decided to kill off the collection if I can. The 1st July sketch from Stuck?! Sketches was perfect for using up scraps of paper.

I chose a couple of old 4x6 photos and cropped them down to 9cm squares (yes, I do mix metric and imperial measurements all the time), making my big triangles a little taller at 10cm high. There are no sizes on the sketch and I discovered that my photos and triangles weren't going to fit together in quite the same way as the ones on the sketch. Never mind, I rearranged them until I had something that I was happy with, layered the photos over the top and made a couple of embellishment clusters in opposite corners.

Stuck?! Sketches teamed up with Frosted Designs for this challenge and they added the twist of using a punch or die-cut. I didn't realise this before I made the page, but I have used a punch for the small circles in my embellishment clusters, so that fits their challenge too.
