Here is the sketch:
The pictures are of my newphew Saywer. Isn't he a cutie? :) His mommy is my awesome sister Christina. These are pictures that my dad took while my sister was visiting in June. Great pics Dad! Just looking at the pictures makes me want to cuddle him. Too bad he is miles away in AZ.
When I came upon this patterned paper by My Mind's Eye I knew it would work so well with this sketch. I pretty much followed the sketch with a few variations.
Variation #1 - I hand stitched a border around the star to add some definition.
Variation #2 - Because I stitched around the star I felt that it would be too much to stitch across the smaller stars. The smaller stars by themselves seemed to just float on the page so I added small star brads to help ground them.
Variation #3 - I didn't edit my photos to allow the smaller stars to go over the photo so I omitted those stars. I may reprint that bottom photo so that I can add stars over the top of it. Not sure if I really will or not.
This sketch is from the new sketch book "Sketches for Scrapbooking" Volume 8 that was just recently released. I have a copy and it has some really fun sketches. I've already started editing a ton of photos for them. Make a comment on this blog post and you will be entered to WIN a copy of this amazing book! I will pick a winner on Saturday, July 16th. Good luck!
