I used some fun new techniques on this one. First was weaving of paper, I had never done it before. I got the idea from a Swirlydoo challenge (since this is from my swirlydoo kit). The bottom and top right red and brown sections are both woven, a really fun thing to do if you have never done it. I even used some unconventional product on this one, the brown paper is from a brown paper bag some of my flowers came in that I opened up and cut into strips to weave, they even had the fun frayed edge to them already.
I then created this wonderful bow using my fun new bow tool, Bow-tastic, it really makes easy good looking bows. I then used the tail on right side to hug the bottom of the photo by curling it around to the other side. I layered in some flowers, and some fun pearl strands I picked up at Hobby Lobby to accent it all off.
For this layout I used this great sketch from Sketches in Thyme. I changed it up a bit, the the general bones are still there. The challenge ends at the end of the month, so head on over and try it out!!
I also used this layout at Frosted Designs for their fun challenge to use clocks or time on your project. So head on over to them and have fun with that challenge!!
