LOAD216 Day 15

Monday prompts are color, today's flag is from Australia: Red white and blue.

 LO 1 I went with a sketch from Stuck?! and will submit it to their sketch challenge. 


I used the red white and blue color scheme to keep with the prompt.  I turned my pics B&W so they were easy to pair with the paper colors. I did turn the sketch 90 degrees but stuck pretty close to it. I did mat it on a dark blue paper, the dark blue strip in the center of the LO I thought needed to be repeated more to off set the red.  I really like this sketch and can see myself using it again.

I used more of the vellum stars I cut with the HS holiday die. The wooden button are from Shimelle's True Stories line, the blue check mark was an alter button. I just popped off the green tea cup sticker and stuck on a Simple Stories chipboard sticker form their planner line.

 LO 2 is a take on another Stuck?! sketch. It is from the January challenge. I missed this one but still liked the sketch.

I again turned the sketch 90 degrees. I added the star to go back to the prompt of the Australian flag, they  also fit the topic perfectly. 


 The background paper is from Shimelle's new line Star shine. for me this LO is a bit plain but it does meet the prompt and have all the details to tell the story I was trying to convey.

The gold thread mess reminded me of a cloud shape and I thought it fit the topic.
