Crafting Lifes Pieces Sketch Time!!

Hello everybody,
I hope you all have had a wondrous weekend!!
The first of the month is upon us,
which means it's time for a new sketch at
Crafting Lifes Pieces
This month we are sponsored by
Digi Doodle
and they have very graciously allowed
our Design Team to play with some of their images,
thanks so much Digi Doodle!!!
Here's my take on this months sketch,
with Teapot Birdie from our sponsor:


I've 3-D'd the image, coloured with watercolour pencils and prisma pencils, the papers are K & Co. and all the yummy embellies are from my stash. I wanted to make it look a little bit like what a bird would collect for its nest with my choice of lace, ribbon, hemp and button!! My sewing machine may be working, but I seem to have forgotten how to use her, lol!! Look at all that wobbly sewing, better yet, don't...


I'm going to pop this in over at PaperPlay Challenges as they want to see themes that are up in the air, Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is hosting a Buttons and Blooms challenge and V is for Vintage over at ABC Challenges. Now before I go, let me show you this fabulous sketch dear Chelsea whipped up for us, woohoo, I love her sketches, they are like a great pair of shoes!! You can dress them up or you can keep things casual, lol!!


I hope you all have a fabulous week!!
It's hot out, I'll be indoors crafting ;)
Take Care,
Stephanne
