Sketches in Thyme.



Here is Sketches in Thyme's sketch.
A 3 photo sketch suited my daughter's photos of famous paintings from MOMA in New York.

I started with a pretty vellum from my Counterfeit Kit.
The colours matched the art. I mounted it on white card.
I found some scraps of cut out tan paper, which I used as the background interest.
I've hand stitched the top left corner using a cross hatching in various sizes. (Can't be too even).

Next I've added 3 corner flourishes stickers, over the top of 3 cream skeleton leaves.
I've added 3 flairs randomly.
This carefully avoided a flowery layout.
My title runs down the RHS.

I, so, love what you did with the sketch here. The photographs are fantastic and your placement of them gives such a depth illusion to the page -- it looks like the middle (vertically) is closer to you than the sides -- love that!
