Nuts About Sketches week 169 :: Pickles

Another DT layout for Nuts About Sketches, this time using week 169's sketch.

I don't have many 5x7 photographs, but sometimes if I see a photo I really like when I am uploading to Photobox, I order a 5x7 copy of it. This is one of those photos. This is our cat, Pickles. She is a 4 year old moggy - and a very fluffy moggy at that. Over the years she has collected a few nicknames, so I wanted to record them.

I didn't want to go down the themed paper route for this layout - I don't actually have that much themed paper anyway - so I went down the white-on-white route. I made all the flowers myself using Natasha's flower turorials, and then handcut the leaf sprigs. The scalloped square was done using a Crafter's Workshop template - I handstitched the outline, and then cut round the stitching afterwards. I added half a doily, and cut the title from foam using my Sizzlit Nouveau alpha before adding some Frosted Lace Stickles to it.

My camera skills aren't that great, so the layout in real life doesn't look as washed out as my photo!
