I'm very happy to be continuing on with the Twisted Sisters for another term, and am delighted to wave hello to new team members as well as a sad farewell to a couple of the old team. With all that talent on show, do head over to Twisted Sketches for a look at sketch #142 and some layout inspiration.
This is my version:
I'm not too fond of the shield shape, so I twisted the shape into a square (yes, a bit of a cheat but I wanted to get a sort of patchwork, country look to go with my farm photo and what better line than Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends, a range that I love, although it breaks Shimelle's cardinal rule about mixing cream and white - something I found out as I created!!) I used a punch to cut my squares then sanded and inked the edges and made the grid. I journalled on strips and all around the square to fit in the story, and added a few embellishments (one cut from paper, one Crate chipboard piece and a couple of buttons. A mix of lettering (Cosmo tiny type, MM epoxy red letters (that pack has done me so many titles :) ) and finally Thickers. Some doodled stitching around the edge finished off my layout.
Thanks for looking.
