Stick It Down - Sharing

This month I'm entering my second term on the Design Team at Stick It Down. Their three sketches for July - single page, double page and card sketch - were published on Wednesday and today it's the turn of the single page team to share our pages.

It's a single photo sketch again this month, so I picked the next single photo from 2002 (as I'm working through that year chronologically). It's one of my son, daughter and nephew in the bath, and I picked the background paper first as it has a water colour type pattern which I thought went well with the photo. Then I picked a scrap of woodgrain paper which has similar colours in it and tore off a strip for the right hand side of the page. I layered that with washi tape and machine-stitched it for interest. I layered up my photo with more of the woodgrain paper and some 6x6 papers; the layers aren't the same as the sketch but the general principles are the same.

Things were getting very box-y at that point so I added circle stickers to opposite corners in order to break up all the straight lines, and ran a series of embellishments around the circles to finish off the page.

  1. This is super cute Amanda! Love that water effect background and the circles sure do add a lovely touch, I like those embellishments attached to them too! I remember when my girls would all share the bath like that, now they won't even share the bathroom!!! Hope your Sunday is a crafty one. xx

  2. Adorable page Amanda! Love the touch of circles to the layout...and those embellishments along the circle look so great!
