Pencil Lines and Nikki Sivils

Pencil Lines went live last night with sketch 174 and guest designer Sue Mylde. I love blog hopping, it is how I came across Sue's gorgeous work. Do you have a favourite artist that you fell a cross by accident? Please share...

Anyways back to Pencil Lines.... Awesome and inspiring gallery by our fabulous DT, do have a good browse, also do click on the DT's blog links on the right hand side for more info on their layouts.

With it being Valentines day, I wanted to do a layout about Peter and I. I had already chosen my journaling from a Foo Fighters song we both love; see this post.
I was all set to use the Valentines line from Nikki Sivils "Will He Be the 1", but I didnt have this line in my DT box. Hey that didnt deter me at all, as I pulled out the gorgeous "Flaming Butterfly" range and knew exactly how I wanted my layout to work.
These beautiful butterflies are begging to be cut out and "popped"

I used the shaped circle paper as my background to my photos, which i took earlier in the morning.

This sketch called for an overdose of Prima flowers, jewels and pearls!

Used American Craft thickers for my title and Jenni Bowlin mini alphabet for my journaling.
As always we offer a FREE digital version of the weeks sketch. You can download here

Enjoy your Monday
Thanks for stopping by
