Tuesday Technique Sketch

Since we are having some problems with our forum,  I know there are those of you who are wanting some new I will post one here on the blog.

Tuesday Technique...Fussy Cutting!!

My friend Lisa loves to fussy cut and I recently have started to really like to do it too.  I never thought I would have the patience for it.  In fact, my other challenge this month required a bit of it too....not much but a little.
Well, today I am challenging you to do even more.  Take some busy paper that you just can’t find a use for and cut out an element or two from it.  In my layout I cut out a ton of flowers.  I curled the edges to make them stand out and added other embellishments to finish them off.  I started with a very basic sketch from Smitha from her blog
Actually this was only part of a sketch. If you check out her blog, she gives a day by day sketch.  Each day she adds to the previous day’s sketch.  This is where I picked it up so  it looks a bit different 
from her final sketch!!

Here is a link to her blog if you would like to see more:

My layout is Be Strong.  
I used the March Bo Bunny Alora Kit from Little Red Scrapbook kit club.  I used less matting than the sketch called for as I really wanted the background paper to show.
I hope you get a chance to do this sketch challenge....Have fun with you scissors!!
