I almost decided not to use these photos for the Sketch, because the sky was still pretty dark behind the rainbow, and I just couldn't figure out what papers to pair with them. I eventually decided to try the new Polka Dot Party collection from Dear Lizzy, and I loved the end result. I used the Magical Moments patterned paper for my background, because it offered a neutral look, but still had a cute border around the page and a misted look on the left hand side. And I just had to use some type of rainbow colors on my layout, so I stitched the word "rain" in four different colors, using the Amy Tangerine stitching template.
Our Sponsor for this month's Sketch Challenge is StudioFourteen40:
Studio Fourteen40 is an exciting new business who made their debut into the paper-craft scene in September this year. Owner and designer, Sandra Allan is ecstatic that her 'baby' generated so much interest and excitement within such a short time.
Sandra, who lives with her husband Matt and their three children in Melbourne, Australia has a keen eye for detail and a love of design and colour. Having worked within the industry and alongside some amazing talent, Sandra had a deep seeded dream to launch her own collection of scrapbooking embellishments and make her own mark on the industry, eventually taking the plunge and giving birth to Studio Fourteen40.
Whilst it is early days at Studio Fourteen40 and Sandra has 13 collections of tin button flairs released, there are plenty more on the drawing board. Sandra has grand dreams for her business and cannot wait to share more of her designs and release other embellishments into her line.
