"Whenever You..." with Christa

Good Morning, fellow scrappers! Today, I want to share with you a design I made about my darling daughter. It was inspired by a Basic Grey sketch based on a layout by Leeanne Pearce.  I love to use Basic Grey because it stretches my creativity and I find that I fall in love with the end result. This design was no different.

I used the Sweet Threads line and added some watercolour paints. I also added a canvas circle which I enhanced with ink and Luminere paint. I tried to add texture with machine stitching, velvet ribbon and luminescent rosettes.

Finally, the little banner on pennants is also glazed with Luminere and ink. The title is inked and sanded too.
I really tried to focus the colours and design around the two smaller photos. I love working in these odd sizes of photo.  I hope you'll give this a try too! Thanks to Basic Grey and Leeanne for an inspiring sketch!
Until next time, keep doing what you love to do.
Christa
