The Scrappiest layout sketch 48

Here's sketch #48 up over at The Scrappiest this week .
& my layout here with our
sponsored Homefront kit by Studio Calico !
woohoo !
I used at least 3 different pps from the SC Homefront line , fabRips &
Alpha Stickers .

Remember there's a fab SC Homefront kit prize this Jan to play for
but you gotta take part to win !

I do believe this is the year I conquer any unfounded fears of
using /cutting incorporating circles into my creations . ;)

Here I used a dinner plate & a kid sized plate to cut out this circular frame for this sketch .
It was handcut with my fave HoneyBee scissors &
 even if I hadn't distressed the edges it would have been presentable enough to use as is ,
ie the result was with fairly smooth edges .

For added interest, I twirled a brown twill  ribbon
to add to the movement & energy
 captured with these shots of our 5 year-old nephew at a park.

Other supplies : Such Sweet Tierney buttons , Robin's Nest dew drops ,
Shimmerz spritz in Liquorice , Treasured Hymn, Maya Mist Charcoal, Black Soot & Walnut Distressed Inks.

This is great Pearl! It has a lot of movement and I can almost see the sports field and the ball!! Your circle is just amazing.

I love that sketch. Hmm. Wonder if I can do a layout today? It's my day off, so maybe...!
