So this is the sketch... And this is my take on it...
I rotated the sketch to accomodate the portrait photograph. This is one of my favourite photos of Tom. It was taken in Grant Park, and he is looking at Mark, while Mark is trying to explain to him how to hang upside down from a climbing frame. I love the look on his face. It really gives me goosebumps, and makes my heart flutter just looking at it.
I used one sheet of BasicGrey paper on this page - a double sided sheet from the Nook & Pantry collection. I love using double sided papers! I cut the doilies out by hand, and halved them to make the edging. The foliage is a PaperTrey Ink stamp, that I stamped onto kraft card with brown Staz On ink and hand cut them out. The handmade flower is coloured with Walnut Stain distress ink, and the little bird is from Prima Marketing. I covered a small chipboard butterfly from Papermania with matching paper. The title uses American Craft chipboard Thickers.
Journalling and a bit of doodling finished it off!
