Nuts About Sketches Reveal

I’m so excited!! Today is my first reveal for Nuts About Sketches!!

Jillibean Soup- pattern paper; cardboard letters, stickers, bean stalks, stamp, spots; buttons- Basic Grey, vintage; Sassafrass-flowers; Making Memories-tag; Ranger - Distress Inks, Distress Paints, Stickles; Stampin’ Up marker; other- denim, burlap, cardboard, stitching

I haven’t done much distressing lately and decided a farm layout was the perfect place to bring it back in! I created the flower background using my Ranger Distress Inks, and a Jillibean Soup Stamp.

You know I have to add texture and dimension! To create the “farm” I cut around the farm scene, from a second farm scene, I fussy cut the barn, tractor/trailer, and hens. What's a farm without trees? I attached all the pieces with pop dots. Notice the open barn doors?! Using a scrap of cardboard, I dry brushed the edges with Ranger Distress Paints for the land.

The denim flowers were cut from a pair of Hubby’s old pants!

How about a little burlap edging.

Don’t you just love the look of wonder on my great-nieces face! This layout will be added to her book, therefore I left the journaling block for her mom to record memories.

I would love to see your version of the sketch! Click Here to go to Nut About Sketches
