Kite Festival *Pencil Lines Sketch 199*

i allowed myself a whole day of scrapbooking yesterday and decided to play along with a Pencil Lines Sketch. i like to save my favourite sketches from Pencil Lines and print them out so i have instant inspiration if  i need a little help with design. i love that sketches can take some of the thought process out for you but still allow plenty of room to play and put your own spin on things. This is Sketch 199, designed by Mahlin Wiggur.

Here's my take on it. i originally wanted to scale it down to 8 1/2"x11" but then i decided to add in the kite and the clouds and it wouldn't all have fit so it became  a 12x12. The kite is made out of some Sassafras banner stickers and i freehanded the stitching. It was a lot of fun to mix such bright colours, it's making me long for the summer!

Papers: Crate Paper, Echo Park, Stickers: Sassafras, Alphabets: American Crafts & Sassafras, Clouds: Buzz & Bloom, Ribbon & Buttons: MME, Mist: Studio Calico & Maya Road, Punch, Martha Stewart, Ink: Colorbox. Twine from own stash.
