Sketch Monday with Jess


Greetings!  Today I've got some Swagger going on with my little guy.  He makes the perfect model little man for this awesome collection.  


Kraft Corrugate Cardstock / Swagger Paper Top Hat / Swagger Paper Clever Swagger Paper Debonair Swagger Paper Humorous Swagger Paper Success / Swagger Paper Powerful /Swagger Banner Die Cuts / Swagger Sticker Fundamentals / Swagger Tape Stickers / Swagger Button Set / Swagger Clips / Swagger Rub Ons / Swagger Ephemera Pack / Etcetera Decorative TagsEtcetera Flair / Artist Edition Sports Stencil Cards / Artist Edition Journaling Cards

I started with a base of the kraft corrugate cardstock and roughed it up with ink, tearing, and mist.  He may be a tiny gentleman but he's still a messy boy at heart!

I created a large mat of layered banner shapes to frame my photo area and added lots of small details around the photo... sewing, twine, the clipped tag, the flair and bits of ephemera.  


My title is from the sweet John Lennon song of the same name.  If you've never listened to it you should! I added a torn strip of border sticker on top of a piece of the Artist Edition journaling card and cut out the rub on to use with a tied button.  


All of my elements were inked with black to give them that grungy worn look and tie everything together.  I alternated straight stitches and zig zag around the outside edge and echoed that border in several places on the banner strips.  I love the pops of orange here and there!


Here's a sketch for you taken from my page.  It's perfect for using a variety of patterns on one layout! Have fun with it!
