Check out this week's Scrapbook Steals sketch here. They are already up to #9 in the series, I can't believe there is only one week left. I even did something that I don't typically do...stop in the middle of another project to get this one done. After wrapping up weeks 11 and 12 of my project life album, I decided to immediately start on weeks 13 and 14. I had a ton of photos that were rather difficult to sort (many needed to be next to each other because they were from the same day) in a way that I liked which made it so I was unable to finish prior to needing to work on this page...but I'm okay with that. My desk was getting rather cluttered up anyway and the clean up gave me a lot more breathing room. Once again, I took many liberties with the sketch as I'm not a big fan of tilted photos.
I added in this photo to show the dimension that is added with the burlap stickers and the wood veneer. These burlap pieces are from Little Yellow Bicycle and I got them on clearance for .44 at Michaels a few days ago. They are very stiff and thicker than I expected them to be, so they popped up the bottom of the photo just a touch when I added them. My only complaint about the burlap (the stiffness, texture, and weave are the exact same in both the SS and LYB sets) is that they leave me feeling really itchy. I had made a wreath using loose burlap and had the same problem and try to avoid it. I honestly wasn't expecting these to shed in the same manner as burlap in it's fabric form, but they do. If you are sensitive to that sort of thing like I am, it's just something you'll want to keep in mind before purchasing them.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you've been playing along since there is a great grand prize drawing that will be happening after the next sketch is due!
