snapshots

This layout was created last week for the Sunday Sketch and the weekly challenge at Studio Calico. The sketch was based on a page by Susan Weinroth. The challenge was to use photos off of your camera phone. I don't take too many pics with my phone but these ones worked out well for a snapshot of our late summer/early fall.


There were some gorgeous Ferragamo dresses from the resort collection that caught my eye and I wanted to use the color and vertical/horizontal stripes on a page. You can see the solid dress on the left is represented on the lower level of the page and the top level represents the dress on the right with the patterns and colors going this way and that. I stitched each piece together to give it a patchwork look.



And here are a couple close-ups. Had to throw in a little sky blue, grasshopper green and a touch of pink to give it that feeling of late summer just before the leaves start to turn.
 
Gotta go, I believe the UPS man just pulled up!!
