Follow Your Bliss

The sketch for this month at My Creative Sketches is a lovely one by Christine Meyer.

For my layout, I used papers from Prima Marketing's Nature Garden collection, along with a mix of flowers from Petaloo and Prima Marketing, and crystals from Zva Creative.

I tore, distressed, and inked the papers for definition and texture, and added some corrugated cardboard to the layout to give it even greater texture and character.

I then added some flowers and a pretty crystal flourish to complete the layout.

Here are some close-ups.

Now, hop on over to the MCS blog for more inspiration, and check out the wonderful prize that's been put together for this month's winner. Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful layouts!

Thanks for dropping by! :)
