I started with a kraft background paper and built up the elements using bits from Simple Stories Say Cheese - currently my favourite collection.
I really enjoyed making the title cluster and used thickers, alphas and stickers round a trimmed down page element. In fact I chopped up one 12 x 12 sheet quite a bit and pieced it over the page to get the look I wanted.
I used a Tim Holtz die to cut the splat and added a couple of stickers on top. The yellow star is repeated two more times on the page - that magic frame of three.
And then came that moment when I liked how it looked and stuck everything down only to discover I'd forgotten that circular part of the sketch. I'd thought to write the months of the year separated by some bits of splat - a great idea but sadly I'd forgotten. And I really tried to embrace this imperfection, but off it all came, the circle was added and then I was happy.
