Scrap Our Stash: Sketch & Bling

Have you played along with the latest Scrap Our Stash Challenge? For the second challenge this month we have a sketch to use and you need to dig into your stash to find some bling to add.

I am hopeless with sketches that feature a circle, I am not sure why I have such a hard time with them, they just stump me. So when I want to do a sketch that has a circle I first work out a way I can recreate the shape, for this one I used hexagons from patterned paper and then I stitched around them to give them some definition for the background paper. 
To add the bling I just used some little adhesive rhinestones and mixed them with the ink dots on my background to add a little bit of sparkle and dimension.
I have to share a close up of the photo because it is just too funny. I was taking some photos of layouts in the courtyard of my old flat an Axel came along to watch (he was my neighbours cat, but pretty much thought he owned all the flats in the complex and did whatever he liked hence there was a lot of Axel everywhere you looked), so I decided to take a picture of him and caught him mid yawn.

There is still plenty of time to play along and there is a great prize this month so head over to the Scrap Our Stash blog and link up your projects.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
