Sketch #57: REVISITED!

Our August Guest Designer Angie Redhead (owner/editor of ScrapScene) has crafted Sketch #57 into a LO in a very unusual and creative manner.
Here is Sketch #57 again, from the talents of CY's founding Sketch Artist:
Sketch #57; by CY Designer & Sketch Artist Noella Arsenault

Our Guest, Angie, was wonderful about describing the process involved in her eclectic creation:

"I used this sketch and made a rectangular shaped layout from a piece of felt as the base. There is a combination of fabric, felt and paper used in this layout. The butterfly has stuffing in it to make it more 3 dimensional. The title was traced onto unbleached cotton, cut out and embroidered. The letters were then tacked onto the layout with a needle and thread. I considered sewing the felt base onto a paper backing to make it more stiff, but decided against that for now as it is supported enough within the plastic sleeves of my scrapbook album."

(I think Angie ought to be teaching, what about YOU?)

On we go with a few photos-- so we can further explore Angie's Sketch #57 creation:

Sketches: Creatively Yours Guest Designer Angie's multi-media layout.

Close-up of twill ruching and placement of hand-embroidered title lettering on layout, including the wooden button as centre of the letter "o."

Close-up of letter "g" & circular fabric embellishment that has been blanket-stitched all the way 'round.

Don't you just love the apple green stitching and all the beautiful, touchableTEXTURE in Angie's project? I love how she put her own spin on Noella's Sketch using different media.

Thank You Angie for sending us this beautiful creation to share with all of the CY Design Team members and our readers.

Awesome Job!
