Change of Season (The Crafty Maven Getaway)

Hello friends!  I was up on the The Crafty Maven Getaway YouTube Channel today for Sketch it up Thursday.  We had a gorgeous inspiration piece this week, and I choose an amazing sketch by the lovely and talented Laura Whitaker.  Make sure you head on over to her blog and check out her sketches.

The mood board immediately reminded me of my November Clique Kit "Tapestry", featuring We R Memory Keepers "Wildflowers" collection and Pink Paislee's "Cedar Lane".  I choose an Instagram photo of Azaria looking at a tree in early Autumn 2014.  I stitched around all of my squares and then lifted up the edges for dimension and interest.

This cluster would have to be one of my favourites ever!  I just love how it came together :)

I was so happy to use one of the cream pleather bows from We R Memory Keepers.

And after hoarding that beautiful butterfly paper I finally fussy cut some of them and added them to this page as embellishments.  I love it when paper becomes an embellishment!

Here is the sketch:

And here is the beautiful Mood Board for this week:

This was my last video for The Crafty Maven, I've decided to step down from the team.  They had a DT call recently, and I'm looking forward to seeing inspiration from the new team.  I wish them all the best.

I'll be posting the video I made on my channel too, so head over here to check it out.  At the end of my video is a look at all the pages I created whilst on the team.

Thanks so much for looking!
