Guest Designer at Little Shop of Sketches




I was asked by my friend Mieke to be a Guest Designer this month at Little Shop of Sketches. I was given a wonderful sketch to work with and above is the resulting page I made according to the sketch provided.


I've had this idea to use adhesive pearls in a scattered design for a circle border so I was thrilled that the sketch design had circle elements in it. I was inspired by a little cluster of pearls I had seen in the gallery of a friend of mine, Teresa that goes by the name Catz at sb.com (a page called 'Me'). You can find these adhesive pearls, along with the pearl flourish, the bling/pearl flourish and the butterflies at my Etsy Site! Actually you can even find the felted pin (clipped to her hairband) Chloe is wearing in her hair at my etsy site! Here are some close-up pics......



Be sure to check out the what the rest of the design team at Little Shop of Sketches has done with the sketch this month....their work is beautiful!!
