Hi crafty peeps - it's me Tonya.

 Here is the sketch that I drew for this month

This month's dare is to use Fabric as one of your layers.

I decided to create a layout to debut this month's Sketch & Dare Challenge.
I used three dies this month:

Dragonfly Frenzy


http://www.die-namites.com/Leafy-Flowers_p_104.html
Leafy Flowers


http://www.die-namites.com/Spring-Doily_p_166.html
Spring Doily
Just look at all these YUMMY layers of texture.  I think the Dragonfly Frenzy die really adds a finishing touch to each of the floral sprays.

I also love how the Leafy Flowers die adds the perfect foliage to my paper flowers, and the Spring Doily oh my - it is one of my favs.,  creates the perfect base to build a floral cluster.

Here is my finished layout!  Isn't it GORGEOUS?   As you can see I used many different textures including lace, burlap and paper to create the squares in the sketch.


I have  prepared a process video of me creating this layout.





SO ARE YOU READY TO PLAY ALONG???
