Crate Paper - Season

Last night I decided to attempt some layouts with the Season papers as they haven't been inspiring me. It's very unusual for me to use up a whole piece of paper as a background rather than the "normal" method of cutting the papers and putting them on cardstock. In this case I decided to be gratuitous with the patterned paper - and the flower, which is made of five flowers a brad and a pearl!

I wasn't totally happy with it, so I got out my trusty toothbrush and spattered it with paint! Then I added extra doodling and and bling to the flowers.

The picture was taken during Summer School last year at Hundale Point.

And then a detail:

These pictures are very dark, but I didn't take them in natural light and they've turned rather pixelly. Must try and take them again.

This was actually for a card sketch challenge over at Sketchy Thursdays, but they did say that the sketch is for inspiration and you could do a layout if you prefered. So that's what I did!

The photo was taken in downtown Toronto outside the Mill Street Micro Brewery.
