A LO I created using this inspirational sketch from the About a Boy Challenge Blog.
What a wonderful sketch and challenging for me!!!! I instantly knew what photo I was to use but then where from there??? I switched the layers and photo to the opposite side and decided to let them run off the edge. My photo was framed with black and a tint of white to draw your attention to it. My bottom layer is actually stenciled using three colors of distressing ink. I knew I wanted to use wood paper and bring in some red, from the tractor. The layers and title came together perfectly but what about embellies???? Oh no, what do I use??? After trying many different things……………I decided to utilize the word “fly”. What better embellies than butterflies……………they worked! I toned down the bright green with distressing ink in tea dye and added trails to finish it off. Here is the final result……………I am pleased with it!!!
I snapped this photo after the guys finished unloading a cord of wood……………..Daniel took the opportunity to catch some sun and a few winks.
