By nature, I am a clean and simple paper crafter, partial to linear designs. As such, I find that I do not use circles as often as I could (or should), particularly large circles or circles that are a design focal point. To remedy that, I set off in search of some sketches to shake things up a bit.
I found these two sketches with large focal circles and used a bit from each design to guide my page. The sketch on the left is from an unknown source. It was posted on the Birds of a Feather Kit Co. site. The sketch on the right is from Kelly Purkey.
This photo of my toddler learning to blow bubbles suited the sketches particulary well, I thought, especially the whimsical nature of the left sketch. It was fun to do some messy sewing.
At the bottom of the page, I played with a fancier stitch. I used collections from Simple Stories for this layout, mostly 100 Days of Summer with a bit of Year.O.Graphy.
