I am so excited to be back here again today to bring you another sketch. What makes it even more exciting is that I got to work with a collection that I’ve been admiring since I first saw it. Maggie Holmes has such an eclectic, romantic style and her papers are always so much fun to scrap with. That being said, I couldn’t decide which photos I wanted to scrapbook most. So, I made the obvious decision and scrapbooked ALL the photos! I made two 4×6 collages using an app on my phone out of a ton of Spring photos.

First, my sketch:

And then, the resulting layout:

I had a lot of phone creating dimension by stitching down some elements and then peeling up the edges of the paper.

The cork embellishments that come with this collection are the perfect finishing touch. I love the contrast of the frilly, watercolor patterns of the paper to the gritty, natural feel of the cork.

Thank you so much to you all! Happy 4th of July weekend to all of my American friends and belated Happy Canada day to all those north of the border. Hopefully you’ll carve out a little extra time to create this weekend because I’m eager to see what you all come up with!
