Love (A layout & Some Cards)

I made this layout for a design team call, but as I didn't get in I'm keen to share it on here now.  I made the pink ruffle by machine stitching some pink tissue paper that was wrapping on a present at Christmas.  It always feels good to be able to re-purpose materials that would otherwise be thrown into the recycling bin!

The photo is an Instagram of Azaria that I enlarged.  When Mum and Dad were visiting late last year we went shopping and Azaria posed on this chair in Glassons, so of course Mum and I had to take a photo.

I used a mixture of American Crafts and Crate Paper, and kept it simple so the photo and ruffle could shine!

I also made these cards for the same DT call:

By the way, Issue 2 of Lets Get Sketchy's "Get Inspired Magazine is now live", you can check it out here.  Submissions are also being taken for Issue 3, so if you are keen to get published make sure you head over to the blog here.

Thanks for looking, have a great day!
