Life Captured - Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge no.38

Morning Everyone

I can't believe it's the 01st November and yes....another step closer to the festive season! Yikes!!!!! LOL's all good and I am excited that Christmas will be here soon and it's a wonderful time to celebrate withe family and friends and just enjoy each other's company.

Today we have a new sketch challenge up on the blog at Scrap Africa and perhaps you can play along.

I created a canvas, with the beautiful papers from BoBunny - Madeleine Collection.

On my previous page I used some string and it actually came from inspiration from this page.  This patterned paper had the grid lines on and I thought it would be cool if I could accentuate the lines...and string came to mind.  So string, glue, gesso and paints were my play things and I am very pleased with the result.

Here's a close-up of the one cluster and the string.

All the blooms and flowers were also one's that I made.

I did a lot of painting, inking and stamping on the background.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a super day!
