Today: using Shimelle's central focus sketch

 I started with this sketch from Shimelle.  I don't usually work from sketches because I always want to feel like I am doing my own thing.  Pages made from sketches always take me longer to get done.  And sketches sorta feel like copying.  I am trying to get over that and take inspiration where I can get it. 



I knew this was a really fun sketch after I saw it, so I figured it was worth a try.

I dug through my last few Studio Calico kits and pulled a few different patterned papers.  I love all the pink in Neverland this month, but it is so easy to scrap with neutrals and light blue.  I used this chalkboard paper,  two pieces of light blue, script days of the week paper, and kraft paper with white arrows for the middle. I added a sheet of vellum to soften the layers a bit.

  I moved the circles around a bit and put one button on top of the page. I used this cute fabric pinwheel from Amy Tangerine, Yes Please.  I just grabbed the wooden title from the same sticker set.  I used pink letters to match her dress and the trees in the background.  I have a few kesi art roller stamps that I used here as well.
