Green Thumb

I had another great Scrapbook With Me session on Wednesday this week with my group. We worked on our layouts using another sketch from Becky Fleck's Page Maps. I love being able to show my group these sketches and how to work with them and put their own spin on the layout. My version is for when Meghan and I went to a local artisan shop to take a Terrarium-Arium class and make terrariums using air plants. Meghan is definitely the green thumb in our family while I am not so air plants seemed to be a better bet for me to take care of.

We used the following sketch from the Page Maps Archives which can be found here. I had the perfect paper for this from a retired Close To My Heart collection called Twitterpated. I incorporated the paper along with some retired and current alphabet stamps and a few fun embellishments to create my version of the sketch. 

A personal favorite technique of mine is to combine fonts when creating my title. For this title I used a retired script stamp set from Close To My Heart along with the serif stamp set - Simply Said. I used a dotted circle stamp to create the stitched-look circles around part of the title but this could just as easily be done by hand or even using a sewing machine.

I tend to work with groupings of 3 for embellishments so on this layout I did 3 groups of 3 buttons I pulled from my stash. I added a little bit of embroidery floss to each.

I hope you liked the layout. Thanks for stopping by.
